Electrophysiology

If there is an issue with the electrical current in a home, the homeowner calls an electrician to diagnose and fix the problem. A child's heart has a highly specialized electrical system that controls the rhythmic contractions that pump blood throughout the body. The dedicated pediatric electrophysiology specialists at Maria Fareri Children's Hospital at Westchester Medical Center can accurately diagnose and treat problems with your child's cardiac electrical system to help restore normal functioning. 

Our doctors are specially trained to determine the cause of an abnormal heart rhythm by locating its origin and tailoring specific treatment. The electrophysiology services we offer include:

  • Routine electrocardiography
  • Ambulatory (Holter) monitoring
