The Cardiology Clinic in the Nawinna Heart Center provides recognized care at the highest level.
Nawinna Medicare Hospitals cardiologists specialize in the diagnosis, treatment and management of diseases of the heart and blood vessels. They are instrumental in helping patients manage a variety of conditions - from blood pressure to life threatening heart attacks, congestive heart failure and irregular heart rhythms
Screening in the Cardiology Clinic consists of laboratory tests to measure the amounts of fats and cholesterol in the blood, and a combination of non-surgical imaging technologies that provide physicians a window into the heart.
This Clinic provides urgent assessment by a cardiologist, a doctor who specializes in treating the heart, of individuals who are experiencing chest pain or other serious heart-related symptoms that have not yet been diagnosed.
During a visit to the clinic tests will be performed to identify risk factors and develop a treatment plan.
General Cardiology & Cardiac Diagnostic Imaging, Tests, and Procedures
Exercise ECG Test
An exercise ECG is done when a normal ECG fails to detect any irregularities in the heart. This is done by increasing the level of the tiredness of the patient in different stages using an exercise machine.
There are certain requirements to be fulfilled in order to determine the suitability of doing this ECG. One requirement is to an echo test by a cardiologist. Depending on the result of this test it is decided whether or not to go for the exercise ECG.
With the observations made with such tests of those patients who are subject to exercise ECG the blood circulation by the heart and blood vessels can be observed.
Depending on the report, cardiologists will decide on the required treatment and further tests.
When the changes of the function of the heart is not recorded with a normal ECG taken within few seconds does not record changes in the function of the heart then the longer 24 hour period ECG will be able to identify these changes.
In a relaxed human body and mind the heart will also be relaxed when the human body and mind gets activated in order to support the additional energy required. The heart will also will act accordingly.
Under certain conditions the above pattern will break down. Still normal ECG will not show this change. At the initial stage when the patient gets some sort of palpitation, faintishness, eyes becoming bluish, forgetfulness, dizziness, and lifelessness will require this test.
An ECG records the electrical activity of the heart. The heart produces tiny electrical impulses which spread through the heart muscle to make the heart contract. These impulses can be detected by the ECG machine. You may have an ECG to help find the cause of symptoms such as the feeling of a 'thumping heart' (palpitations) or chest pain. Sometimes it is done as part of routine tests - for example, before you have an operation.
The ECG test is painless and harmless. (The ECG machine records electrical impulses coming from your body - it does not put any electricity into your body.)
