Research

Mayo Clinic doctors and surgeons who have training in heart rhythm disorders study the diagnosis of heart conditions using electrocardiograms and other techniques in Mayo Clinic's Cardiovascular Research Center.

Some areas of research include:

  • Studying the effect of ambulance ECGs on the outcomes of people having a heart attack
  • Evaluating the overuse of certain heart tests in people with normal ECGs
  • Improving the use of ECGs to guide catheter ablation procedures

At Mayo Clinic, you may have the opportunity to participate in clinical trials. Read more about The Heart Rhythm Disease Program in the Cardiovascular Research Center at Mayo Clinic.
