Electrophysiology Study (EPS)

An electrophysiological study is a common test to examine the electrical activity of the heart.

What is it?

An electrophysiology study (EPS) analyses the electrical activity of the heart in patients who have problems with their heartbeat (arrhythmias). An EPS shows the reaction of the heart to electrical impulses. These signals help your cardiologist identify where the arrhythmia starts and what medications or other therapies may help control it.

How do I prepare?

What happens next?

After your procedure, you will be moved to a recovery room where you will be monitored while you rest for a few hours, or sometimes overnight depending on the time of your procedure, to allow the sedative to wear off.

  1. Do not drive for 24 hours after your test

  2. Be gentle with puncture sites for a day or so (absolutely no heavy lifting)

  3. The doctor will usually have your results available at the end of the test and will advise you about any further treatments or changes needed to existing treatment
