Cardiac Rhythm Management (Electrophysiology)
Diagnosing Heart Rhythm DisordersOur Cardiac Rhythm Management Program provides diagnosis and treatment for disorders that affect the heart’s electrical system and cause rhythm problems.
Our team of specialists use several tools to diagnose and manage heart rhythm disorders, including Holter monitors, event recorders, medication, pacemakers and implantable defibrillators.
PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center’s electrophysiology program uses sophisticated computer technology with advanced 3-D mapping. It is one of only a few such systems in Washington state.
