Electrophysiology and the Human Heart

Mikron Digital Imaging-Midwest and Mikron Digital Instruments provide parts and services to major manufacturers in the nation’s medical imaging industry. The company’s services have been used in many medical imaging disciplines, including electrophysiology.

A distinct branch of physiology, electrophysiology focuses exclusively on the electrical activity that occurs within the human nervous system and other areas of the body. Electrophysiology (EP) testing is particularly useful when developing a treatment plan for patients experiencing rhythmic disturbances of the heart. During an EP test, doctors tap into various electrical pathways associated with the human heart and, subsequently, document the electrical activity taking place.

An EP test may occur at any stage of treatment, either to determine the cause or location of an abnormal heart rhythm, or to determine the ideal approach to treatment after the underlying cause has been identified. Patients should ask as many questions as they can think of to their medical practitioner in anticipation of an EP exam. Certain medications, for example, cannot be taken between one and five days prior to being examined with an electrophysiological device.
