Women's Heart Health


Genetic testing has come a long way since the early 1900s when scientists first discovered that inherited diseased were linked to chromosomes. Today, genetic testing is available for more than 4,000 rare and common conditions, including those affecting the heart. At Atlantic Health System, we have the only program in the state that uses the latest genomic technology to diagnose, monitor and treat cardiac arrhythmias, otherwise known as irregular heartbeats. Our team of genetic counselors and electrophysiologists gather each patient’s family history information to determine if they are at risk for an inherited arrhythmia and create a detailed plan to address it.
