Echo: This is an ultrasound of the heart which shows the size of the heart and how it contracts. It also shows how well the valves are opening and if there is any leaking. Everyone should have an Echo between the ages of 18 and 20 and then at 65. Patients with high blood pressure, murmurs and those with shortness of breath should have an Echo. At 90 Sloane Street we have the very latest, state-of-the-art machine.
Heart Rhythm Monitor: We offer a range of devices to monitor your heart rhythm which include Holter monitors, Zio devices and Kardia devices.
Stress echo: This is a cardiac test that we recommend when appropriate, it involves no radiation, and will detect coronary narrowings of more than 50%. An Echocardiogram (ultrasound) of the heart is performed first at rest and then again when the heart rate has been increased by either exercise on a bicycle, or by an infusion of dobutamine.
