Electrophysiology

Studying your heart’s electrical system

As a part of our high-quality cardiac health care, we are proud to offer our patients an advanced electrophysiology program where our specialists use innovative technologies to diagnose and treat interruptions and irregularities in heart rhythm.

Recognizing symptoms of a rhythm disorder, like arrhythmias, requires a careful study of the symptoms, which can include:

  • Dizziness
  • Fainting
  • Fatigue
  • Low blood pressure
  • Palpitations
  • Weakness

If these symptoms sound familiar, your heart might be experiencing an electrical problem. When left untreated, your irregular heartbeat might lead to feelings of weakness or worse – heart failure, and could result in a variety of heart conditions including:

  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Supraventricular tachycardia
  • Ventricular tachycardia
  • Sick sinus syndrome
  • Heart blockage
  • Pacemaker or defibrillator malfunction
  • Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome

Here’s how electrophysiology works.

If you have been diagnosed with a heart condition, an electrophysiology study may be conducted to determine the best course of treatment. Often we use an electrophysiology study as a method to check the heart before placing a pacemaker or an implantable cardioverter defibrillator.

Procedures performed in the lab by our highly-trained electrophysiologists include:

  • Catheter ablation
  • Electrophysiology study
  • Evaluation and treatment of arrhythmias
  • Implantation and management of pacemakers and cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD)
  • Intracardiac echocardiograms
  • Management of antiarrhythmic medications
