Preparing for Your EP Test or Treatment
Most of the procedures are performed under conscious-sedation anesthesia. Your doctor will discuss in detail the type of anesthesia your procedure will require. The electrophysiologist and nurses will monitor your heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, blood oxygen levels and heart rhythms at all times. Your doctor will give you specific details about your particular test or treatment. It’s very important that you do not eat or drink anything after midnight the day before your EP test or treatment. Please check in with Admissions at the time given to you by your physician. Following a procedure, most EP patients stay overnight in the hospital. You should be ready to go home the next day.
