  • EPS Studies

    Our heart rhythm experts, called electrophysiologists, use electrophysiology (EPS) studies to assess electrical activity and map arrhythmias or irregular heartbeats, offering important information on their prognosis as well as any other serious cardiac symptoms.

    What Happens During an Electrophysiology Study?

    During an EPS study, electrophysiologists use specially insulated catheters, inserted through a vein in the groin area and guided by X-ray, to advance electrodes into the heart. The electrodes assess electrical activity and map arrhythmias or irregular heartbeats, offering important information on their prognosis, as well as any other serious cardiac symptoms. We also use EPS to administer different medications to the heart, to see which one controls a rhythm disturbance, or determine what cardiac procedure or device might best treat the problem.
