Cardioversion is a method to restore an abnormal heart rhythm back to normal.
Cardioversion can be done using an energy shock (electric cardioversion) or medications (pharmacologic cardioversion).
Electric cardioversion may use a device that can be placed inside (internal) or outside (external) the body.
External electric cardioversion uses a device called a defibrillator.
