Cardiac Electrophysiology Services

The body’s muscles are controlled by electrical impulses transmitted from the brain, through the nerves and throughout the body. The muscles that make up the heart are no different — electrical signals tell the heart when to beat, as well as how fast or how hard to beat, in order to adequately supply the body with blood.

Sometimes, however, the electrical signals controlling the heart can become distorted. This can result in problems such as irregular heartbeats, including potentially life-threatening heart rhythms.

Cardiac electrophysiology services at Tanner focus on ensuring that the heart keeps time, with clinical interventions and diagnostic procedures that can address heart problems. Treatment can address a number of symptoms, including:

  • Heart palpitations or fluttering in the chest
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety
  • Dizziness and faintness

Tanner’s cardiac electrophysiology services include ablation, in which a small wire at the end of a catheter is used to scar (or “ablate”) small areas in the heart that could be causing irregular rhythms.

The cardiac ablations available from Tanner Heart Care can treat:

  • Supraventricular tachycardias, including atrial flutter, AVNRT, WPW and atrial tachycardia
  • Ventricular tachycardia
  • Premature ventricular contractions

Tanner also offers cardioversion, cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) device implantation and follow-up, electrophysiology (EP) testing (invasive and noninvasive), implantable cardioverter defibrillation (ICD) implantation, loop recorder implantation/extraction, temporary and permanent pacemaker implantation and more.
