Cardiology is the specialty of medicine concerned with disorders of the heart. Cardiovascular system The cardiovascular system is a system of organs that pump blood throughout the body. It includes the heart, blood vessels, and blood. Cardiac diseases are diseases of the heart and blood vessels.
They include coronary artery disease, congenital heart defects, valvular disease (from rheumatic fever or endocarditis), arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation or ventricular tachycardia (VT), heart failure caused by left ventricular systolic dysfunction due to hypertension or dilated cardiomyopathy among others. Cardiologists Drummoyne provide the best services in town.
Digital ECG (electrocardiogram)
This test is used to examine the electrical activity of your heart. The ECG uses electrodes attached to your chest and arms. It measures the size, shape and speed of electrical impulses in your heart, helping to diagnose problems such as abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias).
You may need an event monitor if your doctor suspects you have atrial fibrillation (AF) or heart failure. An event monitor is a portable recording device used to record the heart’s electrical activity. The monitor records for 24 hours and then send data to your doctor for analysis.
A Holter Monitor is a portable electronic device that records electrical activity in your heart. The monitor can be worn for 24 hours or up to seven days if your doctor requests it. The Holter Monitor can be used to diagnose or rule out the following:
- Heart rhythm abnormalities like atrial fibrillation (AFib), ventricular arrhythmias and paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT).
- Myocardial infarction (MI) and coronary artery disease (CAD).
- Accelerated hypertension.
Echocardiography, including transoesophageal echocardiography
Echocardiography is a non-invasive ultrasound examination of the heart performed using a probe passed through the mouth and into the esophagus. It allows us to evaluate your heart function, assess its structure and detect any problems with its valves. Echo exams are performed in three different ways: Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) this echo exam can be done without needles or dye. The probe is placed on your chest and moved around to capture images from different angles. This may be done lying down or sitting up, but it must always be upright; if you are claustrophobic, then lying down may be more comfortable for you because it gives you better access to some areas of your heart, such as behind your breastbone (breastbone). Most people find this test relatively easy to tolerate since it does not require any needles or dye; however, some people experience discomfort when having their blood pressure taken. If this applies to you, tell us about the booking so we can take care of it before starting!
Stress echo is used to determine the function of your heart at rest and during exercise. The test can identify problems with your heart muscle, valves, blood vessels or rhythm. This test is usually done in a medical office or outpatient centre. You won’t need anesthesia because the device used to record your image is small and doesn’t require any needles or tubes inserted into your body. Stress echocardiography may take less than an hour, depending on how fast you can exercise on the treadmill or cycle ergometer (an exercise bike).
Paediatric and Congenital heart disease
Paediatric cardiology is a subspecialty of cardiology that focuses on diagnosing, treating, and preventing congenital heart disease in children. Congenital heart disease (CHD) is a general term to describe any heart defect present from birth.
Nuclear Cardiac Imaging
Nuclear cardiac imaging is used to evaluate patients with chest pain, heart failure and arrhythmias. Nuclear cardiac imaging is a non-invasive test that uses radioactive tracers (such as thallium or technetium) to assess the heart’s function.
3D Echocardiography / Strain Imaging
3D echocardiography is a non-invasive, painless, risk-free imaging modality that helps evaluate the heart’s structure and function. It provides 3-D images from multiple directions within one heartbeat. This enables us to detect abnormal anatomy, evaluate coronary artery disease (CAD), assess valvular heart disease, and measure cardiac output or ejection fraction. 3D strain imaging is used for complex cases where we need further information about a specific part of the heart muscle in different planes.
Coronary Angiography (invasive cardiac imaging) / coronary angioplasty and stenting.
Coronary angiography (invasive cardiac imaging) / coronary angioplasty and stenting This test is used to detect narrowing or blockages in the coronary arteries. A doctor will use X-rays and dye to look at the inside of your heart. The dye shows up in the pictures so they can see exactly where the problems are. The doctor can then decide if they need to do something about it, like put in a stent (a tube-shaped wire mesh that opens up blocked arteries).
