Electrophysiology is helping cardiologists combat heart disease. At the Abilene Regional Medical Center, a new cardio-lab has been recently installed, including new equipment that gives physicians more capabilities than ever before. The new lab helps cardiologests get speedy, accurate results.
There are relatively few cardiac electrophysiologists compared to conventional cardiologists, but electrophysiology can detect certain heart problems that other procedures cannot find.
One of the most common reasons patients have electrophyiological procedures done is an irregular heartbeat.
