Procedures & Tests - Electrophysiology Studies

(This procedure/test may also be known as: EP Study)

An EP study allows cardiologists to determine whether an abnormal heart rhythm should be treated with medication, cardiac ablation, an ICD or pacemaker. During the EP study, 3 to 5 long, thin, flexible tubes with wires - called electrode catheters - are inserted into a child or teen's heart. The catheter tips record the path of the electrical signals from inside the heart, allowing the pediatric electrophysiologist to identify the location and cause of the abnormal heart rhythm.
