Consultant Cardiologists specialise in conditions of the heart. Symptoms of heart problems can present as shortness of breath, high blood pressure, chest pains and blackouts. The following investigations are available at the Hospital.
An Echocardiogram is a non-invasive procedure that enables a Consultant to examine the chambers, muscles and valves of the heart and helps to build an accurate picture of how the heart is working.
A "resting" ECG measures the electrical activity of the heart - primarily to check its rhythm. It takes a 'snapshot' of just a few seconds of the heart's activity.
Please note that Exercise ECGs and Cardiac Surgery are not currently available at the Hospital.
