Electrophysiology

TESTING YOUR HEART’S ELECTRICAL SIGNALS

Your heart creates electrical signals to regulate your pulse. Our Electrophysiology Studies – sometimes called EP or EPS – test these electrical signals. Electrophysiology helps us evaluate abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias) and determine the best therapy (often an ablation). Special catheters (thin, flexible tubes) are inserted in the leg and neck to sense the heart’s electrical currents. We also specialize in electrical device implantation, like pacemakers and ICDs
