What I found in my thre years on the forum is that physicians all do things a little differently.  there doesn't seem to be a set it stone set of rules for getting an electrophysiology study performed. I'll tell you what I know partially based on what happened to me during my ABLATION.  When catheters are introduced into your heart, the physician may introduce Heparin, an anti-coagulant with a very short half life, meaning that it's metabolized and gone rather quickly.  This is especially given if the atrial septum is punctured in order to reach the left side of the heart.  My problem site was in the left atria just above the  valve.  I was administered Heparin only during the procedure.  NOTHING in the way of an anticoagulant was prescribed upon leaving the hospital.  I find this is the case with many other people on here who have had an electrophysiology procedure with an ablation.  Nobody that I know of here that had an ablation for SVT was prescribed anticoagulants.  If your physician wanted you on blood thinners like Warfarin, or Heparin you'd be sure that you'd have a prescription for them.   Many of us get short runs of SV for months after the procedure.  This can continue for up to a year afterwards.  Mine usually lasted for 6-12 beats before dropping out to normal rhythm.  I don't know how far out you are from your procedure, but if done recently, give it a little more time.
