Caring for patients having difficulty with the heart's rhythm and electrical signaling, our experts in Cardiac Electrophysiology & Pacing are the leaders in the diagnosis and care of patients with atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, Wolff Parkinson White syndrome, flutter and other abnormal heart rhythms. The Cardiac Electrophysiology & Pacing section has five state-of-the-art laboratories that offer a wide range of electrophysiology and mapping and ablation procedures to patients with suspected rhythm abnormalities. Other services include an Atrial Fibrillation Clinic, remote monitoring devices, genetic testing, a full range of pacemaker and cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) devices, biventricular pacemakers, removal of leads, advanced mapping and ablation therapy, Syncope Clinic and Device Clinic.
In the Cardiac Electrophysiology & Pacing section, we offer a variety of highly specialized approaches to heart-rhythm problems. The procedures may be used to diagnose a heart problem or to treat it. Arrhythmia treatment depends on the type and severity of the arrhythmia. In some cases of arrhythmia, no treatment is necessary. These include:
Electrophysiologists (doctors who specialize in heart rhythms) are also experts in the treatment and long-term management of many types of abnormal heart beats (arrhythmias). These include:
Cleveland Clinic Electrophysiologists use specialized approaches to diagnose and treat arrhythmias, such as:

A view of the Electrophysiology Laboratory
The Electrophysiology Laboratory at Cleveland Clinic is an 8 room procedure suite designed to perform diagnostic, therapeutic and interventional electrophysiology based procedures.
Advanced technology along with vast knowledge and skill of Cardiac Electrophysiology & Pacing physicians allow for many complex procedures and device implants, such as:
The Syncope Center, located near the electrophysiology laboratories performs approximately 2,000 diagnostic studies including tilt table testing, blood volume studies and other hemodynamic and/or autonomic nervous system evaluations.
