What can I expect during the electrophysiology (EP) study?

ANSWER

You may feel your heart beating faster or stronger. Tell your medical team about any symptoms you feel. If your irregular heart rhythm starts up, your doctor may give you medication to see how well they control it. If necessary, a small amount of energy may be delivered by the patches on your chest to bring back a normal rhythm.

Based on what he finds, the doctor may continue with something called an ablation procedure. That scars some of the tissue in your heart to restore a normal rhythm.
