Cardiology is the medical speciality dealing with the diagnosis andtreatment of diseases and disorders of the heart. The cardiologydepartment at Global Health Care Hospital is headed by Dr. Gurpreet Singh who has more than 20 years of experience. Besides, we have a team of well-trained and experienced cardiac care and cath lab technicians and staff nurses.

The cardiology department is equipped with the state of the art Siemens Cath lab and patients are observed in a well equipped 75 bedded ICCU.

NON INVASIVE CARDIOLOGY

Non-invasive cardiology identifies heart problems without using any needles, fluids, or other instruments which are inserted into the body.

TREADMILL TEST

ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY

Echocardiography is a test that uses sound waves to produce live images of your heart. The image is an echocardiogram. This test allows your doctor to monitor how your heart and its valves are functioning. The images can help them spot:

  • Blood clots in the heart.
  • Fluid in the sac around the heart.
  • Problems with the aorta, which is the main artery connected to the heart.

HOLTER MONITORING

A Holter monitoring is a battery-operated portable device that measures and records your heart's activity(ECC) continuously for 24 to 48 hours or longer depending on the type of monitoring used. The device is the size of a small camera. It has wires with silver one rupee coin sized electrodes that attach to your skin. The Holter monitor and other devices that record your ECG as you go about your daily activities are called ambulatory electrocardiograms.

ECG

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a medical test performed to detect heart abnormalities by measuring the electrical activities of the heart.

  • As part of the general examination of the heart
  • To determine the cause of chest pain, breathlessness, dizziness, fainting or rapid, irregular heartbeats (palpitations)
  • To assess how medications or medical devices(such as pacemakers) help keep the disease in control
  • To check the health of the heart when other conditions that affect the heart are present (such as a high blood pressure, a high level of cholesterol, diabetes, smoking or a family history of heart diseases)

ABPM

Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM) is when your blood pressure is being measured as you move around, living your normal it is normally carried over 24 hours. It uses a small digital blood pressure machine that is attached to a belt around your body and which is connected to a cuff around your upper arm. It small enough that you can go about your normal daily life and even sleep with it on.

TEE

Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is a test that produces pictures of your heart. TEE uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to make detailed pictures of your heart and the arteries that lead to and from it. Unlike a standard echocardiogram, the echo transducer that produces the sound waves for TEE is attached to a thin tube that passes through your mouth, down your throat and into your esophagus. Because the esophagus is so close to the upper chambers of the heart, very clear images of those heart structures and valves can be obtained.

STRESS ECHO

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, you'll exercise on a treadmill or stationary bike while your doctor monitors your blood pressure and heart rhythm. When your heart rate reaches peak levels, your doctor will take ultrasound images of your heart to determine whether your heart muscles are getting enough blood and oxygen while your Exercise.

INVASIVE CARDIOLOGY

Invasive cardiology uses open or minimally-invasive surgery to identify or treat structural or electrical abnormalities within the heart structure.

CORONARY ANGIOGRAPHY

CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY

It is the procedure of opening blocked coronary arteries and placing a stent.

CAROTID ANGIOGRAPHY AND ANGIOPLASTY

Carotid angiography is an invasive imaging procedure that involves inserting a catheter into a blood vessel in the arm or leg and guiding it to the carotid arteries with the aid of a special x-ray machine.

ALL PERIPHERAL ANGIOGRAPHY

A peripheral angiography is a test that uses x-rays and dye to help your doctor find narrowed or blocked areas in one or more of the arteries that supply blood to your legs. The test is also called peripheral arteriogram.

BIVENTRICULAR ICD

A biventricular (ICD) pacemaker is a special pacemaker used for cardiac re-synchronisation therapy in heart failure patients. In a normal heart, the heart's lower chambers (ventricles) pump at the same time and in sync with heart's upper chambers (atria) When a person has heart failure, often the right and left ventricle do not pump together. When the heart contractions become out of sync, the the left ventricle is not able to pump enough blood to the body. This eventually leads to an increase in heart failure symptoms, such as shortness of breath, dry cough, swelling in the ankles or legs, weight gain, increased urination, fatigue, or rapid or irregular heartbeat.

AICD

An automatic implantable cardioverter defibrillator (AICD) is a small device, made up of a wire and body, used to continuously check your heartbeat. AICDS are extraordinary machines designed to help the pace of the heart and to deliver a shook if needed. Overall, such devices can speed up or slow down your heart rate, with the ultimate goal of keeping your heartbeat as normal as possible.

BIVENTRICULAR PACING/CRT

CRT or biventricular pacing is a special type of pacemaker for certain patients with heart failure; it is used to recover the heart's rhythm and treat the symptoms related to Arhythmia. CRT can be equally effective for both men and women.

The procedure companies of implanting a small pacemaker, usually just below the collarbone. The entrenched device paces both the left and right ventricles (both lower chambers, hence also called Bi-Ventricular pacemaker) of the heart concurrently. Three wires(leads) attached to the device monitor the heart rate to identify heart rate abnormalities and procedure tiny pulses of electricity to rectify them. In simple terms, it is ‘resynchronising the destabilised heart to improve its effectiveness.

PERMANENT PACEMAKER IMPLANTATION

Permanent Pacemaker implantation (PPI) may be in the form of single chamber (WI; WIR) pacemaker implantation, Dual chamber (DDD, PDDR) pacemaker implantation and cardiac resynchronisation therapy(CRT).

Permanent pacemaker implantation involves placement of a single wire or lead (single chamber PPI) into the Right ventricular chamber of the heart(WI; WIR) or two wires or leads (Dual chamber PPI), one each into the Right ventricle and the Right atrial chamber of the heart (DDD; DDDR). The entire procedure is done under local anaesthesia and the patient is conscious during the procedure.

BMV, PMV

BMV.PMB.Percutaneous Balloon Mitral Valvuloplasty (PBMV) is a procedure to dilate the mitral valve in the setting of rheumatic mitral valve stenosis. A catheter is inserted into the femoral vein, advanced to the right atrium and across the interatrial septum. Then the mitral valve is crossed with a balloon and it is inflated to relieve the fusion of the mitral valve commissures effectively acting to increase the mitral valve area and reduce the degree of mitral stenosis. Mitral regurgitation is contraindicated if moderate or severe via Echocardiography to assess the likelihood of using PBMV based on certain echocardiographic criteria.

PERIPHERAL EMBOLECTOMY

Embolectomy is the emergency surgical removal of emboli which are blocking blood circulation. Embolectomy is an emergency procedure often as the last resort because permanent occlusion of a significant blood flow to an organ leads to necrosis. Other involved therapeutic options are anticoagulation and thrombolysis.

DEVICE CLOSURE- FOR ASD,VSD & PDA

ASD, VSD and PDA are birth defects. Now with device closure procedures, we close these defects without any major open heart surgery and the patient can be discharged the next day.

EP STUDY WITH RF ABLATION

An electrophysiology study is a test to measure the electrical activities of the heart and to diagnose an arrhythmia or abnormal heart rhythm of arrhythmia. Both are safe procedures.
