What is it?
An electrophysiology study (EPS) evaluates your heart’s electrical system and helps your doctor diagnose any abnormal heart rhythms you may have experienced or be at risk of experiencing
- Electrophysiology studies test the electrical activity of your heart to find where an arrhythmia (abnormal heartbeat) is coming from.
- These results can help you and your doctor decide whether you need medicine, a pacemaker, an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), cardiac ablation or surgery.
- These studies are performed in a special room called an electrophysiology (EP) or catheterization (cath) lab while you are mildly sedated
