What is an electrophysiologist?

Irregular heartbeat, fluttering, fatigue and lightheadedness are just some of the symptoms of atrial fibrillation (AFib), which accounts for more than 450,000 hospitalizations each year in the U.S.⁣

Speak with your doctor if you're concerned about unusual symptoms that may suggest an arrhythmia. An electrophysiologist is a cardiologist that specializes in identifying and treating heart rhythm disturbances. ⁣

What is an electrophysiologist?⁣
All electrophysiologists are cardiologists, but not all cardiologists are electrophysiolgists.⁣
Electrophysiologists deal with electrical impulses in the heart that control its rhythm and trigger heartbeats.⁣
Think of an electrophysiologist like an electrician, dealing with electricity in the heart, while a cardiologist is more like a plumber, managing the blood flow. ⁣
Electrophysiologists are trained to diagnose and treat arrhythmias.]

What is AFib?

September brings National Atrial Fibrillation (AFib) Awareness Month. AFib is the most commonly diagnosed heart arrhythmia and is estimated to affect as many as six million Americans. This month we're sharing the basics about this condition and how it can be treated. ⁣

#AFibMonth21⁣

What is AFib?⁣
Atrial fibrillation, or AFib, is the most common type of treated heart arrhythmia, a disturbance in which the heart beats too fast, too slowly or irregularly.⁣
Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) is an electrical glitch in the upper chambers of the heart, including atrial flutter, which results in arrhythmias or abnormal heart rhythms. AFib is one of the major components of SVT. ⁣
There are two types of AFib:⁣
• Paroxysmal AFib (intermittent atrial fibrillation) ⁣
When the cardiac rhythm disturbance comes and goes, either by itself or with medicine, within seven days.This condition may occur a few times a year or every day. ⁣
• Persistent AFib (continuous atrial fibrillation) ⁣
When the cardiac rhythm stays out of rhythm for more than seven days. This condition requires some type of treatment.]
