Electrophysiology Lab

Your heartbeat’s rhythm could be a sign of a disorder called arrhythmia.

Recognizing arrhythmia requires a careful study of the symptoms. Here is a list of common symptoms: 

  • Dizziness
  • Fainting
  • Fatigue
  • Low blood pressure
  • Palpitations
  • Weakness

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. 

A list of common procedures and device implants performed in the Electrophysiology Lab include:

  • Arrhythmia mapping
  • Cardiac ablations
  • Cardiac resynchronization devices
  • Electrical cardioversion
  • Electrical studies of the heart
  • Implantable loop recorders
  • Internal cardiac defibrillators
  • Intracardiac echocardiography
  • Pacemakers
  • Tilt table testing

Since heart function is a complex matter, electrophysiology studies your heart’s electrical system.

Here’s how electrophysiology works.

First, remember that only your doctor can refer you to undergo an electrophysiology study. If your doctor believes your symptoms are a sign of arrhythmia, you’ll be sent to the electrophysiology lab.

Procedures performed in the lab by our highly-trained electrophysiologists:

  • Catheter ablation
  • Electrophysiology study
  • Evaluation and treatment of arrhythmias
  • Implantation and management of pacemakers and cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD)
  • Intracardiac echocardiograms
  • Management of antiarrhythmic medications
