Electrophysiology refers to a group of procedures that are performed to diagnose or correct abnormal heart rhythms, such as atrial fibrillation (AFib) or tachycardias (rapid heart rate). Heart doctors at Riverview Health perform electrophysiology in Noblesville, IN with the goal of restoring a normal heart rate and reducing risks of complications from an irregular heartbeat.

Why Electrophysiology is Performed

If your heart is beating erratically or too fast, your doctor may recommend an electrophysiology procedure to treat or cure your heart condition.

Doctors at Riverview Health in Noblesville offer the following types of electrophysiology procedures:

  • Ablation: Using heat, your doctor selects and eliminates certain heart cells that are sending incorrect electrical signals through your heart.
  • Implantable cardioverter defibrillator: A small device that is placed under your skin on your chest wall or abdomen and uses electrical signals to treat an irregular heartbeat.
  • Pacemaker: A battery device placed under your skin on your chest wall that regulates your heartbeat with electrical impulses.
  • What to Expect from Electrophysiology at Riverview Health

Depending on the type of electrophysiology procedure you’re having, you may receive mild or heavy anesthesia to make you sleep. These procedures are usually performed on an outpatient basis, and you’ll be able to return home the same day if the procedure was done on the right side of the heart. Procedures done on the left side of the heart usually require an overnight stay in the hospital.

Recovery After Electrophysiology

Generally, your recovery process after electrophysiology will be quick. Depending on the type of procedure you have, such as pacemaker implantation, your chest may feel achy for several days. Talk with your doctor about what you can expect from your procedure.
