Electrophysiology (EP) Lab. The focus of the Electrophysiology Lab is the diagnosis and treatment of problems with the "electrical" system of the heart. Based on results from studies performed in the EP Lab, appropriate treatment options for various rhythm disturbances (arrhythmias) can be offered. These options may consist of, or be a combination of, medications, pacemaker/defibrillator implantations, electrical shock and application of heat (cautery) to the heart tissue.

Virginia Mason's electrophysiology program is the most active in the region, performing over 1,500 procedures annually. The EP team offers a multitude of testing and treatment capabilities, including: Radiofrequency catheter ablation; Cardioversion; Tilt-table test; Pacemaker insertion; Implantable cardiac defibrillator implantation (ICD); Atrial-ventricular node ablation; Insertable loop recorder; Non-invasive program stimulation. Virginia Mason electrophysiologists are national leaders in ablation procedures for treatment of arrhythmias and in the use of cardiac resynchronization therapy to treat congestive heart failure.
