Diagnosing Cardiac Arrhythmias
Our specialists can diagnose cardiac arrhythmias using the latest diagnostic procedures (both invasive and non-invasive). An example is an electrophysiology (EP) study, an invasive test that allows doctors to determine the details of abnormal heartbeats. The study involves placing catheter electrodes in the heart to measure electrical activity along the heart's conduction system and in heart muscle cells themselves.
Other tests your doctor may order are:
- Electrocardiograms, including signal-averaged electrocardiography
- Holter monitoring
- Event recorder
- Exercise test (stress test or treadmill test)
- Tilt table evaluation
