Your cardiologist will obtain a detailed history from you and perform a physical examination as well as an ECG. Further investigations such as an echo and/or exercise testing maybe required. 

Holter and BP Monitoring

Portable monitoring

A Holter monitor is a battery-operated portable device that measures and records your heart's activity (ECG) continuously for 24 to 48 hrs. A blood pressure cuff can also be worn for 24hrs to monitor average BP.  Patients and the referring doctors will be informed of results.

Exercise Stress Testing

Exercise Technician

This includes and ECG and/or ECHO.  This will be done while you exercise which allows the doctor to assess what happens to your heart rate, rhythm, blood pressure, and heart muscle function.  The addition of echo can greatly increases the accuracy of the test. All our cardiologists are expert in this form of cardiac evaluation.
