Do you know electric impulses are generated within your heart? The electric impulses generation and transmission are vital for cardiac functioning. The electrophysiology is a specialized medical branch of cardiology, which deals with the rhythm disorder of the heart. Electrophysiologists are specialized in the electrical system of the heart and treat arrhythmias like atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachycardia, ventricular tachycardia.

Different procedures performed by an electrophysiologist to treat arrhythmias

When any patient visits electrophysiologist due to abnormal heart rhythm, electrophysiologist conduct complete history and physical exam for symptom analysis. Electrophysiologist may order tests like EKG, echocardiogram or stress test but some specific procedures done to evaluate or treat arrhythmias include:

  • Electrophysiology studies (EPS) for confirmation of the disorder and for deciding the treatment plan. 
  • Pacemakers placement—SA node is a natural pacemaker of the heart. Implantation of a small generator and wires (leads) to support the SA node functioning in case of too fast or too slow heartbeats.
  • Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD)—a small heart rhythm tracking device is implanted, for stimulating the muscle contraction in case of no rhythm or quivering (fibrillation).
  • Catheter ablation— Propelling electrical impulses or cold energy to specific areas of the cardiac muscle causing arrhythmias.

General recommendations provided by electrophysiologists to manage arrhythmias

Avoidance of certain substances

Following are some substances may contribute to an abnormal/irregular heartbeat:

  • Tobacco
  • Caffeine
  • Alcohol
  • Appetite suppressants
  • Cold and cough medications
  • Psychotropic drugs
  • Addictive drugs

Risk factors management

Arrhythmias associated risk like cardiac arrest, heart attack, and stroke can be minimized by following way:

  • Blood pressure monitoring
  • Cholesterol level control
  • Wight management
  • Heart-healthy diet eating
  • Avoid smoking
  • Avoid alcohol
  • Regular performance of mild to moderate physical activity

Compliance with medications

  • Do not stop any medication without consulting with the electrophysiologist. 
  • Do not take any OTC or other health supplements without consulting with the electrophysiologist.
  • In case of any side effect obtain from prescribed medication immediately discuss with the electrophysiologists.

Atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia and often needs consultation and recommendations from electrophysiologist for arrhythmia management. Electrophysiologist may recommend a treatment plan for atrial fibrillation depending upon the individual factors of the patients. Atrial Fibrillation is often associated with increased risk of heart stroke. In such conditions, blood-thinning medications are prescribed. If the patient is younger, they may not require such medications. There are mainly two types of medications prescribed to treat atrial fibrillation - one which controls heart rhythm and another which controls heart rate thus increasing patient’s tolerability to adjust to the arrhythmic condition. But long-term use of this medication can cause side effects. Some patients do not show improvement by using this medications, then electrophysiologists may recommend procedures like cardioversion, ablation or pacemaker.

In the upper right chamber of heart, which is also known as the right atrium contains the sinoatrial (SA) node. SA node generates the impulses, which contract the atria. Thus blood pumping into the ventricles (lower chamber) of the heart. During this time, the SA node generated impulse transmits into the atrioventricular (AV) node. The transmission of impulse continues to pass through the bundle of His into the ventricles. After reaching into the ventricles, the impulse causes contraction within the lower chambers and blood pump out from the heart to other parts of the body.

A small sized battery-powered pulse generator medical device, which is quite similar to the pocket watch is implanted just below the collarbone. A skin pouch made up under the chest or abdomen holds the generator, the wires, and leads are installed through blood vessels for proper positioning them inside the heart. Open chest surgery is recommended for eliminating the device.

Cardiologists are mainly concerned with mechanical heart functioning, which involves cardiac muscle, valves and vessels. Their primary focus to maintain normal cardiac muscle functioning so that blood can flow through blood vessels. Any valve problems or obstruction of coronary artery blood flow is treated by cardiologists. Whereas, electro-physiologists have a focus on the rhythmic system of the heart in case of arrhythmia (irregular heart rhythms) condition.
