Electrophysiology

Electrophysiology, or EP, is the subspecialty of cardiology that addresses electrical problems of the heart. The heart’s electrical system keeps its four chambers beating together in a regular, rhythmic way to pump blood through the body. When there’s a glitch in that system, the heart’s rhythm is disrupted.

Abnormal heartbeats are called arrhythmias. In tachycardia, the heart beats too fast. In bradycardia, it beats too slowly. Some arrhythmias are harmless and may not be noticed for years. Others cause symptoms like palpitations, fatigue, shortness of breath, lightheadedness, and even fainting. Still more, such as ventricular fibrillation, are fatal.

Our electrophysiologists can help you manage rhythm disorders using a combination of lifestyle modification, medication, and minimally invasive procedures performed in our state-of-the-art Cath Lab.
