Testing and Evaluation

Blood Pressure Monitors

A blood pressure monitor measures the pressure that is exerted on the walls of the arteries every time the heart contracts and pumps blood throughout the body.

Holter Monitoring

Holter monitoring provides a continuous recording of your heart rhythm during daily activities, usually during a 24 to 48 hour period. It is an effective way to diagnose abnormal heart rhythms, also known as arrhythmias.

Tilt Table Test

A tilt table test is used to assess your heart rate and blood pressure in different body positions. It is often used to determine the cause of dizziness, lightheadedness and fainting.

Stress (Treadmill) EKG

Stress testing allows your doctor to evaluate your heart while it is working harder during exercise. It is an excellent way to detect blocked arteries.

Electrophysiology Studies (EPS)

EPS uses cardiac catheterization techniques and electrical signals to study patients who have arrhythmias. EPS can help doctors find out where in the heart the arrhythmia starts and what medicines will work to stop it.

2-D Echocardiogram

Echocardiograms use sound waves (ultrasound) to record images of the heart. A two-dimensional (2-D) echocardiogram gives a larger, two-dimensional picture of the heart.

Event Monitors

These special monitors are worn by patients for approximately 30 days. If an irregular heartbeat occurs, the patient can push a button and have the event recorded for a physician to evaluate later.

Transesophageal Echocardiogram (TEE)

This test allows the recording of images of your heart by using a special wand placed inside the esophagus. This test can often show clearer pictures of your heart’s movement than a regular echocardiogram.

Contrast Echocardiogram

If the walls of the heart cannot be seen clearly with a regular echocardiogram, a special contrast material (dye) is injected through an IV in your bloodstream. This allows a clearer viewing of the walls of the heart.
