Echocardiography is a painless test that uses sound waves to create moving pictures of your heart. The pictures show the size and shape of your heart. They also show how well your heart's chambers and valves are working.
An exercise tolerance test (ETT) - also known as an exercise electrocardiogram (ECG) - can help to assess the severity of coronary heart disease. In this condition there is narrowing of the blood vessels supplying the heart.
Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is a non-invasive method of obtaining blood pressure readings over a 24-hour period, whilst the patient is in their own environment, representing a true reflection of their blood pressure.
A Holter monitor is a battery-operated portable device that measures and records patien’s heart’s activity (ECG) continuously for 24 to 48 hours or longer depending on the type of monitoring used. The device is the size of a small camera. It has wires with silver dollar-sized electrodes that attach to patient’s skin.
