Outpatient Procedures

Several procedures such Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG), Echocardiogram (2D Echo), Stress Testing and other clinical procedures can be performed.

Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)

A non-invasive test that captures the heart's electrical activity over time and shows the results, usually as a graph or trace. It aids in diagnosing cardiac problems such as arrhythmias and heart attacks.

Echocardiogram (2D Echo)

This imaging test creates images of the structure and function of the heart using ultrasonic waves. It is employed to evaluate the heart's pumping capacity, size, and valves etc.

Stress Testing

Stress tests assess how well the heart functions during physical stress, such as exercise or medication-induced stress. Common types include treadmill stress tests (TMT) and stress echocardiograms ( Dobutamine stress echo).

Preventive Cardiology Clinic

With major focus on primary prevention, providing inputs on healthy life style, optimizing medications for Diabetes, Hypertension, Metabolic syndrome like conditions will help to reduce the incidence of cardiac events. Periodic assessement of ECG, Echo and TMT will help to find any abnormalities and take appropriative measures.

Chest pain clinic

chest pain being multifactorial in origin, better to get evaluated thoroughly rather than just passing it as a gastric cause. ECG is a very basic investigation that helps to at least differentiate cardiac cause from non-cardiac cause. Echo and serum troponin tests complement them and will be done as and when required. It is always better to get chest pain evaluated by a cardiologist.

Heart Failure clinic

People with Post Myocardial infarction with persisting Left Ventricular dysfunction along with Dilated cardiomyopathy, uncontrolled Hypertension, Stress cardiomyopathy, Peripartum cardiomyopathy, Restrictive cardiomyopathy needs special care tailored to their problem. They need periodic assesement and optimization of cardiac status.

Heart valve clinic

Patients with valvular heart diseases like Rheumatic heart disease like Mitral Stenosis and Mitral regurgitation, Infective Endocarditis survivors, Degenerative valve diseases like aortic stenosis need serial follow-ups with echos and symptom evaluation to determine the timing of valve replacement by trans catheter or surgical. Post-surgical replacement patients need to be monitored for theurapeutic INR range with optimisation of the drug dosage.
