Electrophysiology (Cardiac Arrhythmias)

Cardiac Electrophysiologists are board certified cardiologists that have spent additional time training in the  management of all forms of abnormal heart rhythms, also known as arrhythmias. Treating an arrhythmia requires a thorough evaluation and diagnostic testing as the cause is not always clear. The heart may be beating too fast or too slow and the origin of these arrhythmias can vary. While heart rhythm disorders tend to affect older adults more often than younger patients, they can occur at any age. Those who suffer from arrhythmias may experience a range of symptoms, from mild to severe, which can occur intermittently or on a regular basis. Arrhythmias are generally divided into two kinds,

  • Supraventricular (SVT): abnormal heartbeats that originate in the atria or upper chambers of the heart and
  • Ventricular arrhythmias (VT) that occur in the ventricles or lower chambers of the heart.

Some arrhythmias are more severe than others. In some cases, such as ventricular tachycardia, the condition can be life-threatening. No matter the cause, all arrhythmias should be evaluated and, if necessary, treated as they can eventually lead to more serious heart conditions in the future.

Advances in diagnostic and treatment protocols for heart rhythm have been such that procedures once considered complex are now routine. We encourage you to contact our practice to learn more about our electrophysiology department and how the latest technologies in the field can help you effectively manage heart rhythm disorders with minimal side effects.
