Cardiology Department

NON INVASIVE PROCEDURES INCLUDE:

24-Hour BP (Blood Pressure Monitor)

This test assesses and evaluates hypertension
(i.e. high blood pressure) and suspected hypertension and hypotension (i.e. low blood pressure) and involves wearing a monitor which automatically records blood pressure readings over a 24-hour period.

Ambulatory Monitoring
Holter Monitoring - this monitor continuously records the ECG over a 24-hour period or longer to assess the rhythm of the heart and/or the function of an implanted pacemaker. Our new digital holter system is the most advanced holter recorder available. The monitors are compact, lightweight and more patient-friendly than any previous models

Patient Activated Monitoring - this monitor records the ECG at a time when you experience an event (or symptom) intermittently and is worn over a weekly period.
