Cardiovascular Unit, also referred to as the Heart Station, is one of the hospitals special area which offers varied Noninvasive cardiovascular diagnostic procedures with the highest quality and updated diagnostic protocols performed by highly trained and skillful cardiac sonographer interpreted/ evaluated by our competent Cardiologists/Echo cardiographers/Vascular Consultant working hand in hand on our objective to deliver efficient and cost effective cardiovascular diagnostic procedures.
A non-invasive test of the electrical activity of heart's conduction system, which is transformed into recordings on graph paper–an electrocardiograph.
ECG is done to detect presence of atrial and ventricular hypertrophy, myocardial infarction, arrhythmia, pericarditis and systemic diseases affecting the heart, drug effects and electrolyte imbalances.
Is a relatively new technique diagnostic test to determine the presence of hypertension. This is when your blood pressure is measured as you move around, living your normal daily life over a span of 24 consecutive hours whether you’re awake or asleep. A small digital blood pressure monitor is attached to a belt around your waist and connected to a cuff around your upper arm.
ABPM may help to diagnose (WCH) White coat Hypertension and white coat effect, masked Hypertension, and nocturnal Hypertension.
A Holter monitor is a battery-operated portable device that measures and tape records of the heart’s activity (ECG) continuously for 24 to 48 hours or longer depending on the monitor used.
To detect presence of arrhythmia and diseases affecting the heart, drug effects/monitoring of treatment response.
Echocardiography is a diagnostic test that uses ultrasound waves to create an image of the heart muscle.
Ultrasound waves that rebound or echo off the heart can show the size, shape, and movement of the heart's valves and chambers as well as the flow of blood through the heart.
An echocardiographic exam is done to evaluate a specific clinical sign and symptoms such as heart murmur or if chest x-ray shows cardiomegaly. It can also be used for screening in high prevalent groups and to monitor response to a therapeutic procedure or if complication arises from such.
(Treadmill) Stress Echocardiography (SE), better known as a “stress echo,” is an ultrasound of the heart during rest and stress that determines risk of heart attack and death in patients with known or suspected blockages in the blood vessels supplying the heart.
(Dobutamine) an echocardiographic test may be used if you are unable to exercise on a treadmill or stationary cycle. The test involves the infusion of medication (Dobutamine) which causes the heart to beat faster in a similar way as exercise while echocardiographic images are taken and closely monitored by the cardiologist.
This procedure is used to evaluate coronary artery disease in patients. The test includes an echocardiogram done at rest and again at peak heart rate.
A medical procedure that subjects the heart and circulation to a series of progressive workloads based on the premise that a dynamic assessment is more revealing than one conducted at rest.
A TET is done to evaluate chest pain, screening for CAD or those at risk but asymptomatic male. It can also be used for determining functional capacity, to generate exercise prescription and to monitor response to a therapeutic procedure or if complication arises from such
Peripheral Arterial & Venous Duplex Study (Upper & Lower Extremities)
Vascular studies are a non-invasive (the skin is not pierced) procedure used to assess the blood flow in arteries and veins.
Can help diagnose the following conditions: Abdominal aneurysm, Arterial occlusion, Blood clot, Carotid occlusive disease, Varicose veins and Venous insufficiency
