Cardiology (Electrophysiology Heart Rhythm Disorders)

Electrophysiology test in Coimbatore

Electrophysiology (EP) study or cardiac electrophysiology is a series of tests to determine the electrical activity of the heart. It helps to diagnose abnormal heart rhythms or arrhythmias. A specialist to treat heart arrhythmias or a cardiac electrophysiologist performs the EP study.

Electrical signals usually follow a predictable path through the heart. If there is any abnormality in the path, it leads to irregular heart beats. The abnormality can be due to heart scarring caused by heart attacks, age, and high blood pressure, irregular (uneven) pattern in the heart beat and the arrhythmias can be caused by extra aberrant electrical pathways found in certain congenital cardiac abnormalities

Doctors at Dr.Muthus Hospitals use a catheter to inject a tiny tube into a blood artery that leads to your heart during EPS. They can give electrical signals to your heart and record its electrical activity using a specific electrode catheter intended for EP research and EP procedures test.

Dr.Muthus Hospitals aim to offer comprehensive and extensive services to their patients. With a team of pioneer doctors and world-class treatment facilities, we strive to offer the very best Cardiac Electrophysiology Treatment in Coimbatore to our patients.

 At Dr.Muthus Hospitals, doctors perform cardiac electrophysiology in Coimbatore very cautiously with proper methodology.


Cardiologists with the EP study develop a thorough map of how these signals flow between each heartbeat.

An electrocardiogram (ECG) can be used to figure out what’s causing your cardiac rhythm difficulties (arrhythmias). It’s sometimes done to see if there’s a risk of sudden cardiac death.

Heart specialists (cardiologists) with special expertise in heart rhythm abnormalities do an EP study at Dr.Muthus Hospitals (electrophysiologists).

Treatment of Electrophysiology tests

Dr.Muthus Hospitals Cardiology department focuses on providing patients with comprehensive care and treatment, including therapeutic, diagnostic, and operational procedures, by a team of experienced and skilled procedures.

We have an electrophysiology team with extensive experience in electrophysiology tests, radiofrequency ablations, resynchronization treatment, pacemaker, and other device implantations. We are one of India’s top hospitals for treating acute cardiac attacks.

You may need a diagnosis if doctors want to know-

Where does an arrhythmia originate?

  • How effective certain medications are at treating your arrhythmia.

  • If an issue is treated by eliminating the part of your heart that is causing the aberrant electrical signal. It is known as Catheter ablation.

  • If you think you can benefit from a pacemaker or an implanted cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) consult a medical professional at Dr.Muthus Hospitals.

  • If you're at risk for heart problems like fainting or cardiac arrest, you should consult your doctor. The condition leads to heartbeat stoppage.

During Electrophysiology at Dr.Muthus Hospitals

During an EP investigation, various tests are performed. The tests prescribed may be determined according to your medical condition and overall health. During an EP study, our doctors may be able to record the following-

  • Take a reading of your heart's electrical activity (Baseline)

    The initial electrical activity of the heart is recorded by sensors at the catheter's tip. An intracardiac electrogram is conducted by cardiologists. It tells the path of electrical signals through your heart.

  • Send messages to your heart that cause it to beat

    To speed up or slow down the heartbeat, the doctor may administer electrical signals through catheters to different parts of the heart. This may assist us in determining whether you have excess electrical signals that create an arrhythmia. Also may tell the location.

  • Give medicines to your heart and see its impact

    Certain drugs may be given directly into your heart through the catheter to block or reduce electrical activity. The doctor can learn more about your illness by watching how your heart reacts to the medicine.

  • Mapping the heart

    This method, also known as cardiac mapping, involves selecting the optimal area for cardiac ablation to cure an irregular heartbeat.

  • Perform a cardiac ablation

    During your EP testing, if the doctor believes that cardiac ablation is appropriate, they may proceed with the treatment. Cardiac ablation is a procedure that involves applying heat or cold energy to specific parts of your heart using customised catheters. To reestablish a regular heart rhythm, the energy develops scar tissue that blocks aberrant electrical signals.

After Electrophysiology at Dr.Muthus Hospitals

Post-procedure care will be as follows –

  • You'll be taken to a recovery area to relax quietly for four to six hours after your EP testing. To screen for issues, your heartbeat and blood pressure may be regularly checked.

  • The majority return home the same day. After your test, arrange for someone else to drive you home and to take it easy for the remainder of the day. It's typical to have some soreness where the catheters were inserted for a few days.

  • Daily check-up by the doctors is also given. The further Cardiac Electrophysiology Treatment in Coimbatore is analysed by the result.

Electrophysiology (EP) study helps to examine the electrical signals traveling through your heart. If you have any of the following symptoms, your doctor may suggest an EP study:

  • One has an abnormal heartbeat known as arrhythmia
  • One has fainted
  • One is at risk of sudden heart attack or cardiac arrest
  • One needs cardiac ablation
  • Once diagnosed, start cardiac electrophysiology treatment in Coimbatore immediately.

An EP study, like many other tests and procedures, carries risks. Some of these can be dangerous. The following are some of the potential dangers of the tests not performed by a professional-

  • Bleeding or infection
  • Bleeding near the heart or heart tissue caused by damage (perforation)
  • Heart valves or blood vessels rupture
  • A compromised heart electrical system requires a pacemaker.
  • Blood clots found in legs or lungs
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • A rare case of death

To know more about cardiac electrophysiology treatment in Coimbatore, contact the doctors at Dr.Muthus Hospitals.

  • Do not consume any food or drink 6 to 8 hours before the test.
  • Inform your doctor about any medications you are taking, including over-the-counter medications, herbal supplements, and vitamins. They can request that you refrain from taking them prior to EPS. Take your medicine until your doctor instructs you to stop.
  • Have someone drive you to and from your appointment.
  • Wear your hearing aid or eyewear if you need it during the operation. You are allowed to bring things to the appointment.

You are required to call the doctor and seek cardiac electrophysiology treatment in Coimbatore if you experience the following symptoms post EP,

  • The arm or leg that was used to make the sheath is numb or tingling.
  • Your hand or foot becomes extremely chilly or turns a different hue.
  • The puncture wound is becoming increasingly bruised.
  • The puncture site swells or fluids start to leak from it.
  • Sudden increase of swelling at the puncture point.
