Electrophysiology Lab

Our electrophysiology lab provides state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment for patients with heart rhythm problems.  Services to assess and treat cardiac rhythm problems include:

Cardiac ablations

A cardiac ablation is a procedure used to correct an abnormal heart rhythm. A catheter is used to guide tiny electrodes into the heart. A burst of radiofrequency energy destroys any damaged tissue that is found. After the damaged tissue destroyed, the heart usually returns to a normal rhythm.

3D Mapping of electrical activity

3D electrical mapping is a procedure used to identify the cause of heart arrhythmias.  During the procedure, a catheter is inserted into a large blood vessel that leads to your heart t.  These special catheters have electromagnetic sensors in their tips, which are used to sense electrical activity and map it on a 3-Dimensional model of the heart. 

Cardioversion

Cardioversion is a procedure, performed either with drugs or an electrical impulse, used to “reset” the heart to its normal rhythm (sinus rhythm).

Implanted Cardioverter

An Implanted Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) is a device that is implanted in a patient’s body to help control the heart’s rhythm. ICDs are extremely effective in controlling dangerous arrhythmias and are the most effective therapy for treating ventricular fibrillation, the major cause of sudden cardiac death.

Pacemakers

A pacemaker is a device that is implanted in a patient’s body to continuously monitor the rhythm of the heart.  The pacemaker transmits electrical impulses to stimulate the heart if it is beating too slowly or unevenly.
