    About cardiac electrophysiology

    Cardiac electrophysiology looks specifically at the rhythm of your heart, and so an electrophysiologist is an expert in the heart’s electrical system that controls your heart’s rhythm. If there’s something wrong with the electrical sequence, your heart might beat with an irregular pattern, or go too fast or too slow.

    You might feel heart palpitations, you might feel dizzy and tired, or you might not have any symptoms at all. Whatever the case, our specialists can explain whether it is something you can manage with medicines, or whether you would benefit from treatment like an ablation, a procedure to correct irregular heart rhythms.
