Cardiac Electrophysiology is a branch of Cardiology deals with the study of the electrical system of heart. Abnormal heart rhythms (Arrhythmias) are caused by problems with the electrical system that regulates the steady heartbeat. The heart rate may be too slow or too fast; it may stay steady or become chaotic (irregular and disorganized). Some arrhythmias are very dangerous and cause sudden cardiac death, while others may be bothersome but not life threatening. Globally renowned Cardiac Electrophysiologist treat cardiology patients with Arrhythmia and heartbeat disorders at Kulsum International Hospital.
