An electrophysiology study allows the doctor to assess the electrical activity and conduction pathways of the heart. This study helps determine exactly what your rhythm problem is and what can be done to control it. This may include a catheter ablation, a potentially curative therapy for your abnormal heart rhythm.

A pacemaker is a small device that is placed in the chest to help control abnormal heart rhythms. This device uses electrical pulses to prompt the heart to beat at a normal rate. The pacemaker can relieve some arrhythmia symptoms, such as fatigue and fainting. The device can help a person who has abnormal heart rhythm resume a normal/active lifestyle.
Implantable Cardiac Defibrillator (ICD)
An implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) is a small device that is placed in the chest to help treat irregular heartbeats called arrhythmias. An ICD uses electrical impulses or shocks to help control life-threatening arrhythmias, especially those that can cause sudden cardiac arrest.
A biventricular pacemaker is a special pacemaker used for cardiac resynchronization therapy in heart failure patients. When a patient has heart failure, often the right and left ventricles do not pump together. The eventually leads to increase in heart failure symptoms, such as shortness of breath, dry cough, swelling of ankles and legs, weight gain, increased urination, fatigue or rapid or irregular heartbeat. The device keeps the right and left ventricles pumping together by sending electrical impulses through the leads. This therapy has shown to improve symptoms of heart failure and the person’s overall quality of life.
