Electrophysiology (EP) studies are tests that look at the electric activity of your heart. Having an arrhythmia can be harmless or could cause serious consequences. Sometimes your heart will beat too fast or too slow or erratically. When this happens, blood doesn't flow through your body the right way, which can casue organs not to work properly. When you have an abnormal heart rhythm, called a cardiac arrhythmia, doctors will request that an EP study be done to find out why and where the abnormal heart beat is coming from.

We provide integrated, advanced care and treatments for your irregular heart rhythm. Studies show that the risk for complications decrease at hospitals that perform a high number of procedures.
