Cardiology

Cardiology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders related to the heart as well as parts of the circulatory system. This field includes medical diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease and electrophysiology.

ECG

An Electrocardiogram is a safe, non-invasive and painless test which records the heart’s electrical activity as waveforms. By these waveforms rhythm disturbances, conduction abnormalities and electrolyte imbalances can be identified. health hazards like:

  • Probability of cardiovascular disorder
  • Enlargement of one side of the heart and
  • Abnormal heart rhythms
  • Cholesterol clogging the arteries

Can easily be detected through ECG investigation

Our evolution and interpretation is carried out by the renowned panel of doctors across the global delivering best of medical competency in doctor-e.

TMT

An exercise stress test, trade mill test or cardiac stress test is a non-invasive test done to find the stress on the heart, in other words it measures the effect of exercise on your heart.

Patients with coronary artery blockages may have minimal symptoms and an unremarkable or unchanged EKG while at rest. However, symptoms and signs of heart disease may become unmasked by exposing the heart to the stress of exercise.

During exercise, healthy coronary arteries dilate (develop a more open channel) than an artery that has a blockage. This unequal dilation causes more blood to be delivered to heart muscle supplied by the normal artery. In contrast, narrowed arteries end up supplying reduced flow to its area of distribution. this reduced flow causes the involved muscle to “starve” during exercise.

The “Starvation” may produce symptoms (like chest discomfort or inappropriate shortness of breath), and the EKG may produce characteristic abnormalities. Most commonly, a motorized treadmill is used for exercise, while a stationary bicycle is used in some exercise laboratories.

It is common to find heart patients who have normal ECG. One must remember that the ECGS are taken at rest when the heart is beating at its lowest rate. Even with 90% blocks the patients can have a normal ECG. In such cases the patient would also agree that at rest there is no pain in the chest, the angina symptoms would only come when they increase the heart rate, while doing some physical exertion like walking.

This is the condition where we need a TMT Test. The patients are to gradually increase their heart rate, thus increasing the blood requirement of the heart muscles.

Simultaneously ECG records are taken if there is a blockage of approximately more than 70% ECG shows changes, suggestive of angina.

The test involves recording the 12-lead ECG before, during, and after exercise on a treadmill for diagnosis of subclinical or latent ischemia (decrease in blood supply to organs).
