Stress testing is a cardiological diagnostic procedure to assess how your heart handles increased work level. There are two kinds of stress testing offered: Exercise Stress Test, also called a treadmill test, involves walking on a treadmill at increasing increments while on a continuous EKG monitor. Nuclear stress testing involves a two-day test, the rest day and stress day. Cardiolite is injected through an IV and pictures of the heart are taken on the rest day. The stress day involves either walking on a treadmill or using chemicals (Adenosine, Persantine, Dobutamine or Lexiscan) to simulate increased work on the heart. Both occur while on continuously monitored EKG. Pictures will also be taken on this day.
Echocardiography involves the use of an ultrasound machine to examine the chambers and valves of your heart. It is a non-invasive diagnostic test that helps determine the existence of different types of heart disease.
Electrocardiogram: An electrocardiogram, or EKG, is a non-invasive test that monitors the heart’s electrical activity. During this test, electrodes will be placed on your chest to record the electrical activity.
Pacemaker Clinic: A pacemaker is a medical device that is used to prompt the heart to beat at a normal rhythm. Pacemakers are built to last for years but do require routine maintenance.
Vascular Duplex Scans: An ultrasound, or duplex scan, is a non-invasive procedure that uses sound waves passes through gel placed on a specific area of the body. These scans are used to examine blood flow throughout different vasculature of the body. Our vascular department performs many different types of ultrasounds, including, but not limited to, the following:
Arterial and Venous Ultrasound
