Cardiac Electrophysiology

Cardiac electrophysiology is a branch of cardiology, which deals with the study of the electrical system of heart. Abnormal heart rhythms (Arrhythmias) are caused due to the problems in 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 electrophysiologists treat cardiology patients with arrhythmia and heartbeat disorders, at Kulsum International Hospital.
