This is a test that uses high frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to create a moving picture of the heart, measuring the heart chambers, valves, and blood vessels, to assess for possible abnormal function or anatomy.
This is an echocardiogram performed under stress in a controlled clinical environment to assess the heart’s response to exercise, and identify areas of inadequate blood flow
A holter monitor is a small portable device that provides a continuous ECG over a 24 hour or 48 hour period, in order to observe any abnormalities with the heart rate and heart rhythm which may not be detected on a standard ECG.
The degree of calcified plaque in the coronary arteries is an indicator of heart attack risk, measured by a simple CT x-ray scan, and can be analysed by our team of preventative cardiologists for risk management. Use our FREE online Personal Risk-Profile Calculator here to identify if you will benefit from a CAC scan.
Our specialists will evaluate patients experiencing sudden loss of consciousness, including investigation of possible arrhythmias or cardiomyopathy, and may assess heart rate and blood pressure while the patient is in different positions.
Various devices are required to be checked over specific time periods, and include pacemakers, defibrillators and implantable loop recorders. Respectively, these devices help the heart to beat in a regular rhythm, provide shocks in response to cardiac arrest, and record the heartbeat over a long period.
Cardiometabolic health relates to a range of conditions, beginning with insulin resistance and progressing to metabolic syndrome, pre-diabetes, and eventually to more severe conditions. Management has a particular focus on improving physical activity, diet and other lifestyle factors.
