Cardiology

The Cardiology Department screens, investigates and evaluates heart disease.  Here are some of the tests we routinely carry out for our patients.
 

ECG (Electrocardiogram)

An ECG is a graphical representation of the electrical activity of the heart.  It is a painless non-invasive procedure.
 

Exercise Tolerance Test (Stress Test)

This non-invasive procedure is carried out to assess patients’ exercise tolerance and to evaluate and indicate coronary artery disease.
 

Echocardiogram

An echocardiogram is a cardiac ultrasound meaning a picture of the heart is produced by using sound waves passed through the chest.
 

24 Hour Holter Monitoring

Holter monitoring involves the continuous recording of rate and rhythm of the heart for either 24 or 48 hours.
 

Event Recorders

Event recorders are very similar to Holter monitors.  They are used for patients who do not get symptoms regularly.
 

Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring

Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring involves wearing a blood pressure cuff on the arm attached to a small monitor box worn on a belt around the waist for a 24 hour period.
