Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology
Cardiac electrophysiology is concerned with the analysis, diagnosis and treatment of heart rhythm disorders related to the electrical activity of the heart. At the Center, we offer a full range of testing to accurately diagnosis and assess your heart rhythm disorder, which is the first step toward improving your heart health.
Some of the symptoms that first alert you to a possible heart rhythm problem are: palpitations (a fast or irregular heartbeat) when you are not physically active, shortness of breadth, feeling faint or passing out (syncope). Many of these symptoms have other causes such as: stress, drugs (both legal and illegal) or problems in other organs or systems of the body. You won’t know for sure until you are properly testing and diagnosed. Many outcomes will be significantly better if you are diagnosed early, so don’t hesitate to get tested as soon as you notice these type of symptoms.
If you suspect you may have a rhythm disorder, or you simply want to rule out a rhythm disorder as the source of your symptoms, Dr. Zambito will review your medical history and order one or more tests to assess your condition. Testing may include: EKG, holter monitoring, ultrasound, nuclear cardiology tests or other methods.
If you are diagnosed with a heart rhythm disorder, a treatment plan will be developed to best address your specific needs. Treatments range from medications and lifestyle changes to more invasive procedures such as: cardiac ablation, cardiac catheterization, a pacemaker or defibrillator (ICD) implantation or other implantable devices.
