Electrophysiological study (EP study) is a test used to evaluate your heart's electrical system and to check for abnormal heart rhythms. During an EP study, your doctor inserts small, thin wire electrodes into a vein in the groin (or neck, in some cases). He or she will then thread the wire electrodes through the vein and into the heart. To do this, he or she uses a special type of Live X-ray called fluoroscopy. Once in the heart, the electrodes measure the heart’s electrical signals. Electrical signals are also sent through the electrodes to stimulate the heart tissue to try to cause the abnormal heart rhythm. This is done so that it can be evaluated and its cause can be found.
During the EP study, specialists in heart rhythms or an electrophysiology specialist may also map the spread of the heart’s electrical impulses during each beat. This may be done to help find the source of an abnormal heartbeat.
The cardiologist may advise electrophysiology study for following reasons:
To evaluate symptoms such as dizziness, fainting, weakness, palpitation or others to see if they might be caused by a rhythm problem. This may be done when other tests have not been clear and your doctor strongly suspects you have a heart rhythm problem.
EP studies are used to get information related to abnormally fast or slow heart rhythms.
To find the source of a heart rhythm problem with the intent to do ablation once the source is identified.
To see how well medicine(s) given to treat a rhythm problem are working.
In some cases, the sheath or introducer may be left in the insertion site. If so, you will be on bed rest until the sheath is removed.
