Electrodes, Intracardiac, Conduction Study
Definition : Intracardiac catheters designed to measure the electrical activity of the heart. These devices are usually very small electrodes capable of detecting weak bioelectrical signals; they are typically located at or near the tip of electrophysiology cardiac catheters. Conductivity study (i.e., electrophysiology) intracardiac electrodes are used in studies intended to evaluate symptoms (e.g., complex arrhythmias), assess risks, and design treatments for cardiac diseases.
