Electrophysiology

Electrophysiology is a method used to diagnose and treat congenital and acquired cardiac arrhythmia.

Non-invasive electrophysiology

  • ECG, LT-ECG: ECG and long-term ECG can help identify various congenital and acquired cardiac arrhythmia. By using a 12-channel LT-ECG the origin of rhythm disturbances can be better located.
  • Tilting table: The tilting table examination is a non-invasive diagnosis method used for repeated sudden and unclear loss of consciousness (syncope), which has been used for many years already.

Invasive electrophysiology

  • Cardioversion: With the help of electrical cardioversion, a newly occurring atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter can usually be transposed into the normal sinus rhythm. During a short anesthetic, the patient receives a brief, targeted surge.
  • EPE and ablation: The invasive electrophysiological examination and ablation therapy are used for the diagnosis and therapy of cardiac arrhythmia.
  • Cryotherapy for atrial fibrillation: In case of paroxysmal and short persisting atrial fibrillation, the use of cryotherapy can lead to the stabilization of sinus rhythm.
