Alright y’all, I wanted to try something new today! ⠀
Medical Monday on Electrophysiology ⠀
Before I worked on my unit I had NO IDEA what an electrophysiologist did or was... on our floor we specialize in EP, so I learned quickly! ⠀
Electrophysiologists are cardiologists that specialized in heart rhythm disorders! They focus on the electrical part of the heart. These physicians put in pacemakers or defibrillators, the perform ablations and prescribe anti arrhythmic medications. The are the hearts “electricians” if you will! ⠀
They see patients with ALL sorts of rhythm issues - Atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, sick sinus syndrome, pre ventricular contractions and so much more. ⠀
So there ya have it... I hope ya learned something new if you work in any kind of cardiac or telemetry unit comment below!! .
