Electrophysiology (EPS)
Individuals who suffer from irregular heart rhythms or arrhythmia can greatly benefit from an electrophysiology study. An EPS involves the insertion of catheters ( thin plastic tubes) into different regions of the heart in order to study and map the electrical circuits of the heart. At Southlake, a sophisticated computer is used to create a three-dimensional, multi-coloured image that shows electrical signals passing through the heart. From this physicians can locate the source of the abnormal rhythm and then guide a catheter to the exact location to ablate, or burn, the pathway of the abnormal rhythm.
