(EPS) Electrophysiology

What is Electrophysiology (EPS)?

Electrophysiology is a minimally invasive procedure that uses advanced technology to study the electrical impulses of the heart. During an EPS, thin, flexible catheters are guided through the blood vessels to reach the heart. These catheters are equipped with electrodes that can measure electrical signals within the heart.

Who Needs a Electrophysiology

1. Palpitations : Individuals who frequently experience palpitations (rapid or irregular heartbeats) may require an EPS to determine the cause.

2. Syncope (Fainting) : Recurrent unexplained fainting episodes may be linked to arrhythmias that can be diagnosed and treated with EPS.

3. Atrial Fibrillation : For those with atrial fibrillation (AFib), EPS can help assess the best treatment options, including catheter ablation.

4. Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome : This congenital condition involves abnormal electrical pathways in the heart and can be diagnosed and treated with EPS.

Benefits of Electrophysiology (EPS)

1. Accurate Diagnosis : EPS provides precise information about the nature and location of arrhythmias, enabling targeted treatment.

2. Customized Treatment : The data obtained during EPS can guide the development of personalized treatment plans, such as catheter ablation or medication management.

3. Symptom Relief : Correcting irregular heart rhythms can alleviate symptoms like palpitations, dizziness, and fainting.

4. Enhanced Quality of Life : EPS can significantly improve a patient's quality of life by restoring a normal heart rhythm.
