However there are times when the electrical system or pathways of your heart may cause abnormal heart rhythms or rhythm disturbance, such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter or life threatening arrhythmias. Cardiovascular electrophysiology studies are test that record these heart rhythms and determine the orgin of these disturbances. Once the area is found electrophysiologist will help provide the necessary treatments for each, this may include ablating or burning the area of the heart. Sometimes electrophysiology studies are done before implementing a implantable cardioverter/defibrillator or ICD. The electrophysiologist physicians at Queen's Heart Physician Practice are specialized in the most up to date electrophysiology procedures.
