Electrophysiological heart examination (EPS)

The laboratory carries out diagnostics and treatment of arrhythmias with invasive methods.

Electrophysiological examination is based on diagnostic heart stimulation using temporary intracardiac electrodes. The electrodes are soft wires that under X-ray control are inserted through the femoral veins into heart cavities. The study allows to determine the nature of various arrhythmias, to assess the state of the conduction system and to plan optimal treatment for diagnosed disorders. The examination is usually carried out under local anaesthesia in the area of punctured veins through which the electrodes are inserted. The heart stimulation itself is painless.
