Electrophysiology EP Services

What is electrophysiology? Electrophysiology is a subspecialty of cardiology that addresses the “electricity” of the heart or its rhythm. This specialty can help address abnormal heart rhythms, the cause of these irregularities, and the best course of treatment for addressing problematic heart rhythms.

Common examples of conditions and procedures that fall under the umbrella of electrophysiology include cardioversion, catheter ablation, atrial fibrillation, bradycardia, and implantable electrocardiographic monitoring devices. Your doctor may also prescribe medications such as Amiodarone, Warfarin, and Apixaban.

Electrophysiology Conditions:

Atrial fibrillation – Atrial fibrillation is a condition that affects the heart’s electrical system. It is a type of arrhythmia that usually occurs when the heart’s upper chambers are driven rapidly by a renegade timer or timers. Click here to learn more about this condition.

Bradycardia – Bradycardia means a slow heartbeat. There can be a number of underlying causes, such as an electrical problem, anorexia, sleep apnea, or a heart attack. Your doctor can diagnose bradycardia using an electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG). Click here to learn more about this condition.
