Technology for Testing & Treatments
Treatments include but are not limited to the following:
Electrocardiography is a testing method that is commonly used to determine if the heart has been damaged. Also known as an E.C.G. or an E.K.G., an electrocardiogram is a print-out of the heart's electrical impulses.
Nuclear Cardiology Imaging
Nuclear Cardiology Imaging is a stress test that utilizes a radioactive tracer to identify blockages in the major blood vessels that lead to the heart. This does not require insertion of a catheter into the blood vessels, rather it is delivered via an injection.
Echocardiography is an ultrasound of the heart that shows how it is functioning, while it is in motion.
Pacemaker and Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) Monitoring
A pacemaker is an implanted device that helps regulate your heartbeat. An implantable cardioverter defibrillator or ICD is a small device inserted below the collarbone and connected to the heart by wires. The ICD delivers a small shock, which "resets" the electrical signals in the heart, causing it to beat normally again.
Cardiac Rehabilitation is an individualized and personal treatment plan which includes evaluation and instruction on physical activity, nutrition, stress management, and other health-related areas. Click here to learn more.
