Cardiology

Our Cardiology and Pulmonology Unit is one of the best in the area as it is equipped with modern facilities which ensure the safety and the wellness of your heart and lungs.

TREADMILL STRESS TEST

Cardiovascular exercise stress testing in conjunction with an ECG has been established as one of the focal points in the diagnosis and prognosis of cardiovascular disease, specifically coronary artery disease (CAD).

VASERA

VS-1000 Vascular Screening System

VaSera is a powerful new screening tool in fight against Atherosclerosis that is a considerable cause of CVD. Vasera measures vascular compliance using sophisticated new oscillomeric technology termed “CAVI; Cardio Ankle Vascular Index”. In addition, VaSera performs Ankle Brachial Index Measurement that provides information that may help predict peripheral artery occlusions.

VaSera adopts the oscillometric method for blood pressure measurement. In addition, it does not simultaneously measure blood pressure at 4 limbs but at first it measures blood pressure at the right brachial and ankle and then measures at the left brachial and ankle. Thus, arteries at the right and left sides are alternately pressurized with the other side open. This not only reduces burden to examinees but also enables more accurate measurement.

2D-ECHO WITH DOPPLER

Two-Dimensional Echocardiography can provide excellent images of the heart, paracardiac structures, and the great vessels. During a standard echo, the sound waves are directed to the heart from a small hand-held device called a transducer, which sends and receives signals. Heart walls and valves reflect part of the sound waves back to the transducer to produce pictures of the heart. These images appear in black and white and in color on a TV screen. They’re selectively recorded on videotape and special paper, and reviewed and interpreted by a Cardiologist (heart specialist). From the pictures it is possible to measure the size of each part of your heart, to study motion and appearance of the valves and the function of the heart muscle.

Our Physician will use the measurements to determine how your heart is working and whether or not any abnormalities are present. A Doppler echo is often done at the same time in order to determine how the blood flows in your heart. The swishing sounds you hear during the test indicate blood flowing through the valves and chambers.
