Electrophysiology is the diagnosis and treatment of electrical disturbances of the heart. At York Heart and Vascular Specialists, a cardiologist specially trained in electrophysiology diagnoses electrical disturbances of the heart, such as arrhythmia and atrial fibrillation.

Electrophysiology studies, electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) and transesophogeal echocardiogram (TEE), measure the heart's electrical activity and identify muscle damage that can cause heart disease. Portable devices such as a Holter monitor or event recorder measure a patient’s heart activity throughout the day, over an extended period of time.

Depending on the type and severity of arrhythmias and atrial fibrillation, there are a range of treatment options. UPMC Pinnacle Memorial provides comprehensive treatment, from lifestyle-modification assistance to invasive procedures.
