Marian Regional Medical Center is committed to helping your heart keep its beat. That’s why we’re offering electrophysiology and heart rhythm management services inside our Heart Center.
What Is Electrophysiology?
Electrophysiology, or EP, is the science of diagnosing and treating electrical activities of the heart, or heart rhythm disorders. Doctors specializing in EP treat irregular heartbeats that are the result of abnormal electrical impulses causing the heart to beat too quickly, too slowly, or irregularly.
At Marian, our electrophysiology services are part of our cardiac catheterization laboratory. This means we have the most advanced heart rhythm management equipment and technology at our fingertips, allowing us to diagnose and care for issues like atrial fibrillation, the most common type of heart arrhythmia, to perform needed angiograms and treat congestive heart failure.
Marian is a top-rated heart care hospital with a proven record of excellence. Our electrophysiology program further helps us care for the people of Northern Santa Barbara County.
