Electrophysiology is the management of the heart’s rhythm. An electrophysiology study is an invasive procedure that tests the hearts electrical system, which is what generates the heart’s beat.
The electrophysiologists (arrhythmia specialists) at Baptist Health System work with patients who suffer from heart disturbances. Our physicians are board-certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in Cardiovascular Disease and provide a full range of services from diagnosis through recovery stages. Your doctor will rely on your medical history and work with your primary care physician to create a personalized patient care plan.
Disorders and treatments we specialize in include:
- Atrial fibrillation – Irregular and rapid heart rate caused by insufficient blood flow to the body
- Atrial flutter – Faster, regular beating of the heart’s upper chambers
- Bradycardias – Slower beating of the normal heart rate
- Cardiomyopathies – Difficulty for the heart to pump and deliver blood to the rest of the body due to abnormal heart muscles
- Supraventricular tachycardia – Faster beating of the heart’s lower chambers
- Tachycardias – Faster beating of the normal heart rate
- Ventricular tachycardia – Faster, but regular rhythm of the heart
- Ventricular fibrillation – Faster and irregular beating that causes the heart to stop pumping blood
