Electrophysiology [EP] Study

Undefined

A specialized procedure, the EP Study is conducted by the Electrophysiologist. One or several catheters (thin, flexible wires) are inserted into a blood vessel (usually the groin) and guided into the heart. Each catheter contains two or more electrodes to measure electrical signals in the heart, as they travel from one chamber to another.

EP studies are done to diagnose any cardiac rhythm abnormalities. They help surgeons to ascertain the best method of treatment, and to pinpoint any sites where therapy may be useful.
