ECG (Electrocardiograph)

A routine painless test which records the electrical activity of the heart.


This test involves the use of high-frequency sound waves which are directed through the body to create an image of the heart and is a painless means of giving information about the anatomy and physiology of the heart and great vessels. Doppler Ultrasound also forms part of the test in which a special microphone is used to assess the blood flow in different parts of the heart.

Exercise Stress Test

This test can diagnose and assess suspected or known coronary artery disease and involves the recording of the ECG and blood pressure while walking on a treadmill. GP ordered stress tests are performed on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, while a Cardiologist is on site. A completed Exercise Stress Booking Form must accompany the patient. These forms may be obtained from Cardiology Administration.
