Treating Heart Rhythm Disorders

Electrophysiology services help diagnose and treat patients with a heart rhythm disorder.

When someone’s heart doesn’t beat normally, doctors use electrophysiology studies (EPS) to find out why. During EPS, doctors insert a thin tube called a catheter into a blood vessel that leads to the heart. A specialized electrode catheter designed for EPS lets them send electrical signals to the heart and record its electrical activity.

EPS test the electrical activity of the heart to find where an arrhythmia (abnormal heartbeat) is coming from. The results can help you and your doctor decide whether you need medicine, a pacemaker, an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), cardiac ablation or surgery.

What is a Heart Attack?

A heart attack occurs, in most cases, when a vessel supplying the heart muscle with blood and oxygen becomes completely blocked. The vessel may have become narrowed by the slow buildup of fatty deposits, made up mostly of cholesterol. When a clot occurs in this narrowed vessel, it completely blocks the supply of blood to the heart muscle. That part of the muscle will begin to die if the individual does not immediately seek medical attention.
