If your doctor suspects problems with the valves or chambers of your heart, come to PICJ for an ultrasound (echo) of the heart. An echocardiogram is used to assess the functions of your heart.
This test is done to find out if you have a heart failure or if your heart failure has aggravated. The results will help the cardiologist decide what treatments you need.
Treadmill stress test
This test is performed while you’re exercising on a treadmill to check how the heart works with exertion. A stress echo evaluates chest pain, coronary artery disease, shortness of breath and rhythm disturbance.
24HR Ambulatory ECG
This ECG test records the electrical activity of your heart while you’re doing your regular everyday activities. It allows the cardiologist to analyse your heart rhythm to determine if there are any problems such as atrial fibrillation.
