The Galway Clinic is a leading centre for the provision of Cardiac care in the west of Ireland. It was established in 2005 and has gone from strength to strength in providing a full range of cardiac services. 

Electrophysiology is a sub speciality of Cardiology and deals with the study and treatment of heart arrhythmias using catheter ablation to permanently cure most arrhythmias.

In the past many patients could only be treated with lifelong medications for many arrhythmias.
The development of Cardiac Electrophysiology allows us to use a variety of highly specialised approaches to heart rhythm problems. It is possible to map most arrhythmias inside the heart using specialized catheters with an electrophysiology study. These arrhythmia circuits can in many cases be cauterised or ablated leading to a permanent cure. 

Dr Brendan O’Cochlain of Galway Cardiology is the Consultant Electrophysiologist at the Galway Clinic that specialises in the treatment of heart arrhythmias. A full range of cardiac treatments and procedures are provided by Dr O’Cochlain such as:

  • Pacemakers 
  • Internal cardiac defibrillators
  • Loop recorder devices 
  • Biventricular pacemaker and ICD devices 
  • Mapping of complex arrhythmias 
  • Catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation/ flutter, supraventricular tachycardia
  • Tran’s septal punctures 
  • External or internal cardioversion 
  • Device lead extraction 
  • Use of intracardiac echocardiography
