Electrophysiology - Heart Rhythm Management
Electrophysiology (EP), or heart rhythm management, is the study, diagnosis, and treatment of the abnormalities (arrhythmias) of the electrical conduction of the heart. An electrophysiologist is a cardiologist who specializes in the diagnosis and treatments these abnormalities. The electrophysiologists at the CHI Health Clinic Heart Institute specialize in treating arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, ventricular tachycardia and many others with the latest technology, procedures and devices. They work collaboratively with our general cardiologists and interventional cardiologists as well as cardiovascular surgeons to provide high-quality patient centered care for a wide variety of conditions including atrial fibrillation.
- Atrial Fibrillation
- Atrial Flutter
- Ventricular Fibrillation
- Ventricular Tachycardia
- Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome
New Technology and Innovative Procedures
Our ability to make real-time 3-D models of the heart helps us determine the best treatment options such as medications, surgical procedures, or devices such as defibrillators or pacemakers with remote monitoring by specialized staff.
A new, high-tech hybrid electrophysiology lab at CHI Health Creighton University Medical Center - Bergan Mercy in addition to our existing labs enables us to provide efficient, accurate care.
