what is an electrophysiology study?


An electrophysiology study, also called an EPS, is a special type of heart catheterization which is done to study the heart's electrical system. The electrical system controls the heart's rhythm, including the rate and type of heart beat. An EPS is done when there is concern about a problem with the heart beat or rhythm.


agree with u PsychDr2B, but wanna add that EP studies are not just confoned to heart. it may be used anywhere where electrical current is involves, so an other example with be the EP study of the nervous system
