We are proud to offer our quality cardiology services at Baliga Diagnostics. Here is a list of what we perform at our cardiology clinic in Jayanagar.
An electrocardiogram is an investigation that helps determine the electrical activity of the heart. It is a simple test to perform and only takes a few minutes. It provides valuable information as to how well the heart’s electricity is and whether there is any heart attack going on at the time of chest pain.
An echocardiogram is a specialized cardiac investigation where an ultrasound probe is placed over the chest wall and the heart muscle structure is visualized. It helps figure out how well the heart is pumping and if there is any damage to the heart muscle or to the house of the heart.
Ambulatory Blood Pressure Recording (ABPM)
An ambulatory BP recording is an investigation that is valuable in making a diagnosis of hypertension. It is also used to see if an individual‘s BP is well controlled on medication. It is an outpatient test and the machine will be attached in the clinic and the patient will be sent home, to be followed up the following day with the results.
Holter test is a test that looks at your ECG over a period of 24 to 72 hours. Sometimes the test can be performed for an even longer duration of time. It is indicated in individuals who have an irregular heart rhythm or who are experiencing palpitations.
Treadmill testing (TMT)
A treadmill test is an investigation where the patient is made to walk on a treadmill with the ECG leads attached to a computer. It helps determine if there is any problem with the circulation of the heart muscle and is an indication of any underlying heart artery blockages.
