Electrophysiology studies are tests that help doctors understand the nature of abnormal heart rhythms. Your doctor inserts a catheter into a blood vessel that leads to your heart. A specialized electrode catheter lets your doctor send electrical signals to your heart and record its electrical activity.
A special machine sends energy to your heart to modify via heating small areas of heart tissue where abnormal heartbeats may cause an arrhythmia to start. Destroying this tissue helps restore your heart’s regular rhythm.
Cardiac 3D Mapping
Electrical mapping of the heart is a procedure that is used to diagnose the origins of arrhythmias. This procedure uses an electrically sensitive catheter to map the electrical activity in the chambers of the heart.
