Cardiologist
When you are dealing with a complex health
condition like heart disease, it is important
that you find the right match between you
and your specialist. Dr. Mehta is Heart
specialist in Pune. A diagnosis of heart or
vascular disease often begins with your
primary care doctor, who then refers you to
a cardiologist. The cardiologist evaluates
your symptoms and your medical history
and may recommend tests for a more
definite diagnosis. Then, your cardiologist
decides if your condition can be managed
under his or her care using medicines or
other available treatments. If your
cardiologist decides that you need surgery,
he or she refers you to a cardiovascular
surgeon, who specializes in operations on
the heart, lungs, and blood vessels. You
remain under the care of your cardiologist
even when you are referred to other
specialists.

ELECTROCARDIOGRAM (ECG)
WHAT IS AN ELECTROCARDIOGRAM
(ECG)?
An ECG records the electrical activity of
the heart. The heart produces tiny
electrical impulses which spread through
the heart muscle to make the heart
contract. These impulses can be detected
by the ECG machine. You may have an
ECG to help find the cause of symptoms
such as the feeling of a thumping heart
(palpitations) or chest pain. Sometimes it
is done as part of routine tests for
example, before you have an operation.
The ECG test is painless and harmless.
(The ECG machine records electrical
impulses coming from your body it
does not put any electricity into your
body.)

HOW IS IT DONE?

Small metal electrodes are stuck on to your arms, legs and chest. Wires from the
electrodes are connected to the electrocardiogram (ECG) machine. The machine
detects and amplifies the electrical impulses that occur at each heartbeat and
records them on to a paper or computer. A few heartbeats are recorded from
different sets of electrodes. The test takes about five minutes to do.

WHAT DOES AN ELECTROCARDIOGRAM (ECG) SHOW?

The electrodes on the different parts of the body detect electrical impulses coming
from different directions within the heart. There are normal patterns for each
electrode. Various heart disorders produce abnormal patterns. The heart disorders
that can be detected include:

Abnormal heart rhythms. If the heart rate is very fast, very slow, or irregular. There
are various types of irregular heart rhythm with characteristic ECG patterns.

A heart attack (myocardial infarction) and if it was recent or some time ago. A heart
attack causes damage to heart muscle and it heals with scar tissue. These can be
detected by abnormal ECG patterns.

2D Echo With Colour Doppler
The purpose of this study is to determine the
size of your heart, to evaluate how well your
heart is functioning or pumping and to assess
the structure and function of the valves within
the heart. A 2-D (or two-dimensional)
echocardiogram is capable of displaying a cross-
sectional slice of the beating heart, including
the chambers, valves and the major blood
vessels that exit from the left and right ventricle.
A Doppler echocardiogram measures the speed
and direction of the blood flow within the heart.
It screens the four valves for leaks and other
abnormalities. By assigning color to the direction
of blood flow, (Color Flow Mapping), large areas
of blood flow may be studied. These color flow
mappings allow abnormal blood flow
characteristics to be interpreted by the
cardiologist.

Stress-Test
WHAT IS AN ECHO STRESS TEST?
A stress echocardiography, also called an
echocardiography stress test or stress echo, is a
procedure that determines how well your heart
and blood vessels are working. During a stress
echocardiography, youll exercise on a treadmill or
stationary bike while your doctor monitors your
blood pressure and heart rhythm.

WHAT IS ECO TEST?


The test is also called echocardiography or
diagnostic cardiac ultrasound. Quick facts. An
echo uses sound waves to create pictures of your
hearts chambers, valves, walls and the blood
vessels (aorta, arteries & veins) attached to your
heart. A probe called a transducer is passed over
your chest.

HOLTER MONITORING
WHAT IS HOLTER MONITOR?
A Holter monitor is a continuous tape recording of a
patients EKG for 24 hours. Since it can be worn
during the patients regular daily activities, it helps
the physician correlate symptoms of dizziness,
palpitations (a sensation of fast or irregular heart
rhythm) or black outs. Since the recording covers 24
hours, on a continuous basis, Holter monitoring is
much more likely to detect an abnormal heart
rhythm when compared to the EKG which lasts less
than a minute. It can also help evaluate the patients
EKG during episodes of chest pain, during which time
there may be telltale changes to suggest ischemia
(pronounced is-keem-ya) or reduced blood supply to
the muscle of the left ventricle.
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR THE TEST?
The only requirement is that the patient wear loose-
fitting clothes. Buttons down the front of a shirt or
blouse is preferable. This makes it convenient to
apply the EKG electrodes, and also comfortably carry
the monitor in a relatively discreet manner.
