EPS (Electrophysiology Study)
This four-page handout helps people prepare for an electrophysiology study (EPS), which is a test of how well the heart's electrical system works by checking for abnormal heartbeats or heart rhythms. It contains guidelines to help the patient prepare, and provides them with a brief step-by-step explanation of what will happen during the test, and after. The document discusses home care, and identifies those symptoms for which a doctor should be called immediately, clarifying those for which to call 911.
