Description

How do you explain the difference between a cardiac catherization and an electrophysiologic (EP) study to a patient? How are arrhythmias managed? What is a tilt table test? What are the different types and methods of ablation? What is electromagnetic anatomical mapping, and how does it assist with arrhythmia diagnosis during ablation? What potential complications might be observed after atrial fibrillation ablation? What is the role of transesophogeal echography in terms of atrial fibrillation ablation? Foundational nursing care is presented when caring for the patient who is electrophysiologically managed. This information not only provides improved patient outcomes, but it also ensures safe practice.
