Cardiac Consultation Office Treadmill Test
  • An adequate evaluation of your heart’s function is made only when the heart is tested both at rest and during activity. A stress treadmill test is prescribed to assess the function of your heart during activity. The test normally runs for 20 minutes but if you feel tired before that, or any discomfort, the test can be stopped immediately. This test is always performed under the supervision of your cardiologist.
  • An echocardiogram is an ultrasound of the heart An echo study of the heart reveals crucial information about the condition of the heart valves, its pumping efficiency as well as detailed scrutiny of the heart’s structure itself. The procedure takes about ten minutes and is totally painless.
  • An ECG (electrocardiogram) test might be ordered by your cardiologist either as a follow-up to your prior studies, as a routine part of your general check-up or as an immediate first line study if you have any symptoms pertaining to the heart. This painless procedure will only take about five minutes to perform.
Blood Biochemistry
  • A sufficient amount of blood will be sampled for some tests to indicate heart function and predict cardiovascular risk. These tests include enzyme studies, a detailed lipid profile and a detailed glucose profile.

Useful info and health tips

People who have high blood pressure or cholesterol, diabetes, are overweight, or have a history of smoking or cardiac conditions in their family are at an increased risk of developing heart disease. Men are more likely to develop cardiac issues after age 45, while the risk increases for women after menopause around age 55.

Go for regular checkups

If you have heart disease, see your doctor as recommended and do not skip appointments. You may find it helpful to write down a list of questions before your visit. If concerns arise between appointments, such as a new symptom or a change in medication, call your Summit Medical Group physician or cardiac case manager.

Maintain a healthy weight

Packing on extra pounds can increase your risk for heart disease. If you are overweight or obese, try to lose weight by eating nutritious foods and exercising regularly. In particular, people who carry excess fat around their belly—a waist circumference of more than 35 inches for women and 40 inches for men—are more likely to develop heart disease and diabetes.

Stay active

Get moving at least five days a week for 30 minutes. Cardiovascular exercise is anything that keeps your heart pumping such as walking, swimming, or biking. Change your exercise routine so you do not get bored. Remember to get clearance from your physician before you start any new workout plan.
