Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology
Conditions We Treat

Care for the Full Range of Cardiac Arrhythmias

At the Cincinnati Children’s Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology Program, we evaluate and care for a variety of conditions including:

  • Abnormal heart rhythms, which can be fast, slow or irregular
  • Palpitations – feelings of the heart racing, pounding or skipping heartbeats
  • Syncope (fainting) and pre-syncope
    • Cardiac-focused syncope that may be due to previously undiagnosed structural heart disease
    • Neurocardiogenic syncope (fainting)
  • Cardiac channelopathies – hereditary disorders of the heart’s electrical system
    • Genetic variants or mutation predisposing to an inherited arrhythmia
    • Long QT syndrome
    • Brugada syndrome
    • Short QT syndrome
    • Catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT)
  • Tachycardias – fast heart rate
  • Conditions affecting the normal electrical system of the heart requiring cardiac rhythm devices such as pacemakers, implanted defibrillators and loop recorders
  • Arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy (ARVC)
  • Idiopathic ventricular fibrillation

We also provide services for families of first-degree relatives who have experienced sudden cardiac arrest or sudden cardiac death.
