Electrophysiology studies (EPS) are procedures that check your heart’s electrical system. This electrical system is what organizes the heart muscle to pump blood efficiently to your body. This pamphlet explains why and how an EPS is done, how to get ready for the procedure, how long it takes, and what to expect after. A list of symptoms that need to be checked by a doctor in the Emergency Department is included.
