ORLive Presents: Biventricular Defibrillator Implantation Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy to Restore Natural Synchronized Beating of the Heart

Live Webcast: From Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center: February 27, 2007 at 6:00 PM CST (February 28, 2007 at 00:00 UTC)

BATON ROUGE, LA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 29, 2007 -- Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center will broadcast a biventricular defibrillator implantation live over the internet on Tuesday, February 27, 6:00 pm Central time.

The implantation of a biventricular defibrillator is a significant part of Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) to restore the natural synchronized beating of the lower chambers of the heart, especially the left ventricle, to treat chronic heart failure. The walls of the left ventricles must beat in a synchronized pattern to get the blood pumped optimally from the heart to deliver oxygen to the rest of the body. When the left ventricle is out of sync -- the heart function declines -- patients experience marked shortness of breath, cough, swelling in the ankles, weight gain, fatigue and a rapid or irregular heartbeat.
