Cardioversion is a medical procedure that restores a normal heart rhythm in people with certain types of abnormal heartbeats (arrhythmias). Cardioversion is usually done by sending electric shocks to the heart through electrodes placed on the chest. The patient is given a sedative to put him into a light sleep during the procedure. It takes no more than 10 minutes and when he awakens, the cardiologist will inform him of the success of the cardioversion.
