Electrocardiography and Electrophysiology
The Electrocardiography (ECG) and Electrophysiology (EP) Section, led by Dr. Vivek Reddy, provides electrocardiograms, signal-averaged ECG’s, 24-hour Holter monitors and an array of cardiac events-monitoring and ambulatory telemetry services. The EP service provides electrophysiology studies, radiofrequency catheter ablations, cardioversion, tilt-table tests, implantation of pacemakers, cardioverter defibrillators, resynchronization devices, intra-operative mapping, and cryoablation (in collaboration with cardiothoracic surgery), an arrhythmia clinic, and consultation and follow-up services.
Over 2,000 procedures were performed last year. Currently, there are two dedicated EP rooms with state-of-the-art equipment for mapping and ablation.
The Cardiovascular Medicine FPA is open from 8am until 6pm, Monday through Friday.
