This page provides useful information on the nature of the work, the common procedures/interventions, sub-specialties and other roles that may interest you.
We provide multiple cardiac examinations tests such as:
– Electrocardiogram: recording the electrical activity of your heart at rest. It provides information about your heart rate and rhythm, and shows if there is enlargement of the heart due to high blood pressure (hypertension) or evidence of a previous heart attack (myocardial infarction).
Blood Pressure monitoring: the blood pressure monitoring allows your blood pressure (BP) readings to be recorded over a 24-hour period, whether you’re awake or asleep., while using an instrument called a sphygmomanometer that is used to take your BP readings.
Echocardiogram: An echocardiogram uses sound waves to produce images of your heart. This common test allows your doctor to see your heart beating and pumping blood. Your doctor can use the images from an echocardiogram to identify heart disease.
Cardiac Stress tests: A cardiac stress test is a cardiological test that measures the heart’s ability to respond to external stress in a controlled clinical environment. The stress response is induced by exercise or by intravenous pharmacological stimulation.
