Uncertainty Re treatment

I have been diagnosed with SVT and in a couple of days I'm going in to consult with a doctor regarding my SVT and Ablation. How do the doctors know which type of Tachycardia I have since it wasn't diagnosed by a Cardiologist?

An EKG readout can show pretty specific arrhythmia patterns. V-tach will look a lot different than atrial fibrillation or heart block, etc. As for finding the trouble spot that's causing the arrhythmia, that's what the EP study is for. They can go in, trigger the arrhy, find the spot that's firing off, map it and then ablate it. They're very careful about checking it and getting only the trouble areas.
