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:
Low blood pressure
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:
Sick sinus syndrome
Pacemaker or defibrillator malfunction
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:
Evaluation and treatment of arrhythmias
Implantation and management of pacemakers and cardioverter-deﬁbrillators (ICD)
