Electrophysiology Studies/Cardiac Mapping

Electrophysiology, or cardiac mapping, studies are performed to diagnose arrhythmias, or abnormal heart rates, by locating small areas of abnormal heart tissue that may be interrupting your heart’s normal electrical system. By using a catheter inserted into your arm, your doctor can study your study your arrhythmia by recording the path of your heart’s electrical signals.

When your doctor is able to determine what is causing the electrical disruptions in your heart, the decision can then be made as to how to treat your condition – with medication, an implantable cardiac defibrillator, a pacemaker, or a cardiac ablation procedure.
