Cardiac Electrophysiology

Cardiac Electrophysiology is a fascinating field of medicine that focuses on the heart’s electrical activity. It can help us understand conditions such as arrhythmia and treat them with the right interventions. Whether it’s pacemakers, ablation, or defibrillation, a wide range of treatments are available to help patients get back on the road to recovery.
Our cardiac electrophysiology specialist at Vanguard medical group is highly experienced and equipped to handle any situation. In addition, we use the latest technology to ensure accurate diagnosis and treatment of heart rhythm disorders. So, if you’re looking for a team that can provide reliable cardiac care, you know who to call.

Cardiac Electrophysiology at Vanguard Medical Group

Electrocardiogram Test

An electrocardiogram test is a simple and painless procedure used to measure the electrical activity of your heart. During an EKG test, electrodes are placed on your chest, and a machine prints out your heart’s electrical activity. This information is then used to diagnose and treat any underlying conditions.

At Vanguard, our electrophysiologists and cardiac rhythm analysis technicians use their expertise to perform electrocardiogram studies. They also use advanced tools to diagnose and treat heart rhythm conditions accurately. As a result, you can feel confident that your cardiac health is safe. So, if you are searching for an “EKG test near me,” look no further than Vanguard.

Holter Monitoring Test

The Holter monitoring test is used to track and record your heart’s electrical activity for a while. It is a small wearable device that monitors heart rhythm over one day or more when the patient is away from the clinic.

In addition, a cardiac event monitor is also used by our cardiologists to detect arrhythmias. It is worn for a few weeks to detect any abnormal heartbeats. Our cardiac electrophysiology team uses the latest technology to perform Holter monitoring tests. So, trust us to provide the best care for your heart.

Pacemaker Clinic

A pacemaker is a small device implanted permanently in the heart to correct a chronic slow or irregular heartbeat or to help treat heart failure. It is also used to treat bradycardia, where your heart rate falls below 60 beats per minute.

At Vanguard, trained doctors, cardiologists, cardiovascular specialists, and primary care physicians and staff work together as a team to evaluate and treat people with heart rhythm conditions. This collaborative approach means doctors can evaluate your heart rate and other conditions to determine the best pacemaker. Our pacemaker clinic also provides ongoing monitoring and support so that you can be sure that your pacemaker is functioning properly.

AICD Clinic​

Our AICD clinic is designed to provide comprehensive care for patients with an Implantable Cardiac Defibrillator (ICD). An ICD is a device that monitors your heart rate and delivers an electrical shock if it detects an abnormal rhythm.

At Vanguard, our heart rhythm department and cardiologist surgeons evaluate the heart condition. They are devoted to protecting you from the devastating effects of heart disease, such as cardiac arrhythmias and atrial fibrillation. Our AICD clinic provides safe, effective treatment for patients with ICDs.

Whether you are looking for a pacemaker, an EKG test, Holter monitoring, or AICD treatment, Vanguard Medical Group is here to provide you with the best cardiac care. Let us help you get back on track and live a healthy life!

General FAQs

A cardiac electrophysiologist is a doctor who specializes in diagnosing and treating heart rhythm disorders. They use electrocardiograms (EKG), cardiac event monitoring, and other methods to detect and diagnose abnormal heart rhythms. They also perform catheter ablation, pacemaker, and implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) insertions to treat these disorders.
An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) is an invaluable diagnostic tool that assesses your heart’s electrical activity. This test can help a physician determine how well the electricity within your cardiovascular system is functioning. There is no such difference between these terms as people refer to electrocardiograms as ECG (electrocardiograph).
A Holter monitor test records the electrical activity of your heart over a 24-hour or longer period. The results can help detect an irregular heartbeat and any underlying cardiac issues. The test is often used to diagnose arrhythmias, heart attacks, and other cardiac-related issues.
A heart event monitor is usually worn for up to 30 days to detect abnormalities in your heart rhythm. During this time, the device records your heart’s electrical activity and sends signals to a doctor or monitoring center. The data collected is then used to diagnose any underlying heart issues and determine your best treatment plan.
Getting a pacemaker is considered a minor surgery. The doctor will make a small incision in the chest and then insert the pacemaker device during the procedure. The surgery typically takes one to three hours, depending on the patient’s health, and is performed under local anesthesia.
