Tests & procedures

Tests

ECG (Holter) Monitoring

Holter monitoring is form of extended duration ECG monitoring that is used to capture recordings of abnormal heart rhythms that may be transient in nature.

Blood Pressure Monitoring

High blood pressure is a silent disease. It can be asymptomatic for many years until it manifests as a sudden heart attack, stroke, kidney failure or peripheral vascular disease.

Coronary CT Angiography

CTA is a non-invasive method of detecting narrowings or blockages in the coronary arteries. Coronary CTA uses advanced CT technology.



Echocardiogram (Echo)

An Echocardiogram (echo) is a non-invasive, safe and effective test to study the anatomy and function of the heart.

Event/Loop Monitor

A Loop Monitor is used to capture recordings of symptomatic heart rhythm disturbances that happen infrequently.

Stress Echocardiography

A stress echo (treadmill) is a combination of an echocardiogram and a treadmill exercise stress test. This test compares how your heart muscle contracts at rest and then immediately following exercise.



Procedures

Coronary Angiography

Coronary angiography is a procedure performed by cardiologists to accurately visualise the blood supply of the heart, the coronary arteries.

Coronary Stent

A coronary stent is a small tube, usually made of a metal alloy, which is placed within a coronary artery narrowing and used to splint or keep the coronary artery open.

Electrophysiology (EP) Study

The normal heart beat is triggered by the coordinated, sequential flow of electrical impulses through specialised conduction pathways to all parts of the heart.





Permanent Pacemaker

Your heart beat is usually generated by the heart’s electrical system (conduction system), between 50 and 180 beats per minute (bpm) depending on your level of physical activity.
