Heart Health Check
While you may be able to detect a few of these signs of heart disease in yourself, it is best to have your doctor run through a comprehensive heart health check. It will include:
- A complete medical history and physical examination
- Blood tests to assess your cholesterol levels and the flow of blood through your arteries
An electrocardiogram (ECG) records the electrical activity of your heart.
Heart Event Recorders
Heart event recorders monitor heart rhythm and detect abnormal heart rhythms. They are a type of implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD). These devices may be used in patients with a heart attack or those at risk for sudden death from cardiac arrest caused by an abnormal heart rhythm called ventricular fibrillation. The device can be programmed to detect and treat sudden cardiac arrest. A test for diabetes (optional) An electrocardiogram (ECG) records the electrical activity of your heart. It can detect specific problems in its structure or functions device is implanted under the skin by a surgeon and connected to the heart by wires that go through blood vessels. We use it in patients with congenital heart disease and those who have had a heart attack or other heart problems.
Echocardiography & Stress Echocardiography
Echocardiography is a non-invasive diagnostic test that we use to assess the heart. Cardiologists in Sydney performs the examination, and it uses ultrasound (high-frequency sound waves) to create images of your heart. These images allow the healthcare provider to assess your heart chambers and valves’ size, shape, and motion. Echocardiography is usually done through a transducer (a handheld device). This device sends out high-frequency sound waves that reflect off your organs and tissues as they pass through them into an image on a monitor or other recording device. A Doppler echocardiography test uses a Doppler effect to assess blood flow in your heart. The healthcare provider will place a transducer on your chest or back and move it around as needed. You may hear faint rushing sounds as the instrument moves across your body.
An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a simple test that measures the electrical activity of your heart. We use electrodes to estimate how much electricity is produced during each heartbeat and look for irregularities in the waveforms.
The ECG can help diagnose a variety of conditions, including:
- Arrhythmias – Irregular heartbeats that may cause you to pass out or die if left untreated
- Cardiomyopathy – A disease that causes your heart muscle to become enlarged, stiff and unable to pump blood effectively throughout your body
- Coronary artery disease – The buildup of plaque in your arteries due to lifestyle choices such as smoking or eating an unhealthy diet
Heart attack: A medical emergency with a shortage of oxygen-rich blood that can cause severe damage to your heart. Muscle disorders – Disorders of the heart muscle itself, such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy or arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy
Exercise Stress Testing (EST)
We perform exercise stress tests on patients diagnosed with coronary artery disease. During the exercise stress test, you will be given a treadmill or stationary bike and asked to walk on the machine at increasing speeds. We increase the speed until you reach your target heart rate, which we hold up to five minutes. After this point, you will have your blood pressure measured again before continuing your workout until reaching your goal of time spent exercising (usually about 20 minutes). At the end of this period, you will stop exercising and lie down, resting for five minutes more while monitors attached to your body record any changes in blood pressure or heart rhythm that may occur during this period. Suppose these changes occur after exercise has ceased. In that case, they could indicate that there has been damage to a coronary artery—often an unstable plaque—that might cause another heart attack if left untreated.
