Cardiology is the branch of medicine concerned with diagnosing and treating heart diseases. The term “cardiology” comes from the Greek words kardia (meaning heart) and logos (meaning study). A cardiologist is a physician who specializes in diseases of the heart. Cardiovascular disease (or CVD) is any disease of the heart or blood vessels, including coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease, stroke, high blood pressure (hypertension), and others. These diseases affect tens of millions of Americans each year and contribute substantially to mortality in industrialized countries worldwide. Cardiovascular diseases account for more than half of all deaths worldwide. Advanced Cardiology provides you experienced and highly qualified heart specialist Sydney.
Cardio Vascular Test
Cardiac testing is a process to determine if there is any problem with your heart. There are different types of cardiac tests available; the most common one you will come across is an EKG test. An Electrocardiogram (EKG) is a noninvasive procedure that checks the electrical activity of your heart.
The test can pick up:
- Heart rhythm disturbances such as arrhythmias or arrhythmia
- Aneurysms in arteries leading to your heart (carotid artery aneurysms)
The vascular doppler is a noninvasive test measuring blood flow in the arteries. It can also detect blockages, blood clots and aneurysms. The vascular Doppler Test is performed by placing a small ultrasound probe over the surface of a patient’s body (usually their wrist or ankle). A physician uses this device to send out high-frequency sound waves that bounce back when they strike moving blood cells within an artery. The resulting images are used for diagnosis at Advanced Cardiology Heart Specialist Sydney.
A stress ECG is a test that measures your heart’s response to exercise. It’s also an exercise electrocardiogram (ECG) or stress test. A stress ECG can look at how well your heart functions during physical activity, whether you have coronary artery disease and how quickly it responds to treatment for atherosclerosis. The doctor will ask you to walk on a treadmill or ride a stationary bicycle for about five minutes while the monitor records the electrical activity in your heart. You may need to do this several times if there are problems with the reading, so don’t worry if you’re tired after just one session—the doctor will ask you back for another try if necessary. Afterwards, they’ll compare these recordings with an earlier baseline recording taken when you’re relaxed (for example, while sitting down).
24 Hr ECG Monitor
A 24-hour ECG is a device that monitors your heart rhythm continuously for 24 hours. It is a safe, noninvasive test and helps to detect any irregular heartbeats or arrhythmias.
Exercise Tolerance Test
The exercise tolerance test is a diagnostic test that helps doctors assess how well an individual’s heart can pump blood during physical activity. It involves having the patient walk on a treadmill or ride a stationary bike while their heart rate and blood pressure are monitored. In addition to being used as a screening tool for heart disease, this test can also determine the cause of fatigue or breathlessness in athletes who want to participate in competitive sports without risking further damage to their cardiovascular system.
The benefits of an exercise tolerance test include the following:
- giving you insight into your overall health and fitness levels as well as any existing conditions or diseases you might have;
- providing information about your risk factors for other long-term health problems such as diabetes or high blood pressure;
Circadian Blood Pressure Monitoring (CBPM)
Circadian blood pressure monitoring (CBPM) is a new method of diagnosing hypertension or high blood pressure. It involves taking your blood pressure several times a day at the same time every day for a week or two. To monitor your circadian rhythm, you need to have an accurate clock that shows the time in 24-hour format (00:00–24:00). You also need to set the alarm on this clock so that it goes off at certain times during the day. You should do CBPM if you have high or normal blood pressure and have been told there is no apparent reason for it. You may also want to consider doing CBPM if you’re unsure whether having an irregular heart rhythm might be affecting your risk of heart attack or stroke – especially if you’ve had previous episodes of these conditions. The best way to start doing CBPM is by having someone else take your blood pressure at regular intervals throughout the day while awake and after waking up from sleeping overnight (around 10 am) until sunset (6 pm). It’s important not to eat too close before measuring your pulse rate because this can affect how quickly food passes through your digestive system into circulation. Where it’s detected by sensors connected with other parts inside our body, like those found within arteries located underneath skin surface tissue layers adjacent to external organs like kidneys which don’t require surgery when damaged due to internal bleeding caused by trauma/injury etc.
Diabetes & Cardiovascular Disease Management.
Diabetes and cardiovascular disease are two of Australia’s leading causes of death. A person’s diabetes status increases the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular disease is a significant cause of illness, disability and death in people with diabetes.We have already treated thousands of patients and made them healthy again.
