Abnormal Heart Rhythms & EP
Abnormal heart rhythms, or atrial fibrillation, are commonly known as arrhythmia disorders. Afflicting over 2 million Americans, arrhythmias may indicate a serious problem that could lead to heart disease, stroke or sudden cardiac death.
The expert cardiac staff at St. John Health System can determine whether there is cause for concern through electrophysiology (EP) testing, which are studies that record the electrical activity and pathways of your heart.
This study can help your doctor find an irregular heart rhythm, show how well medications work, and help determine treatment for any rhythm problems.
The EP test can:
- determine the cause
- locate the origin
- assist the doctor in identifying the best treatment for an abnormal heart rhythm, if necessary.
