An Introduction to Electrophysiology
Electrophysiologists specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of arrhythmias. Advances in diagnostic techniques, such as implantable loop recorders, which have advanced to smaller and more reliable devices, and more recently the introduction of injectable loop recorders, have improved patient satisfaction and outcomes. Treatments such as ablation therapy are constantly evolving and research into the timing and treatment sequencing is ongoing.

Are There Enough Data to Safely Withdraw Anticoagulation After Atrial Fibrillation Catheter Ablation?
European Journal of Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology. 2019;5(2):82–6 DOI: https://doi.org/10.17925/EJAE.2019.5.2.82
The global disease burden of atrial fibrillation (AF) is considerable, and a significant proportion is attributable to the associated thromboembolic risk. The pro-thrombotic environment resulting from AF accrues a five-fold increase in stroke risk, with the arrhythmia implicated in 30% of all strokes.1,2 Evaluating thromboembolic risk should be a primary concern for any healthcare practitioner […]
