Exercise Stress Test (EST) 1,999 THB
It is an electrocardiogram while exercising. It simply refers to “Treadmill” as a non-harmful examination. To exercise on a treadmill with a cardiologist besides all the time to detect myocardial ischemia from coronary arteries. Or detect irregular heartbeats that occur while exercising by walking on a treadmill to see if the cardiac muscle receives adequate blood and oxygen while the body is working hard. Aiding in the accurate diagnosis of diseases by doctors.
This type of test can initially screen for coronary artery disease. And can also detect arrhythmias from exercise. In addition, physical fitness can be assessed. This type of examination will give more detailed results than an ECG examination alone.
Suitable for athletes who have had chest pain before. Or people aged 40 years and over, both without and having risk factors for coronary heart disease, such as heavy smokers, diabetic patients, and high blood pressure patients; people with high LDL cholesterol levels > 130 mg/dl or HDL levels < 40 mg/dl.
Echocardiogram (Echo) 1,999 THB
Echocardiography, or ultrasound of the heart, is a specialized measure of performance that must be performed under the supervision of a cardiologist. It uses a principle similar to ultrasound. It consists of transmitting sound waves through the chest wall that are safe for the body to the heart and receiving the reflected sound to be converted into images on the screen, showing the shape, size, and function of the heart muscle and heart valves to measure the performance of the heart, whether the compression of the heart muscle, the size of the heart chambers, blood circulation in the heart valve function, and the location of the blood vessels that enter and leave the heart.
The examination lasts no longer than an hour, and the examiner lies on a flatbed during the procedure. Turn just a little to the left. ECG pads will then only be attached to three places while being examined. It can be said that it is an easy and painless method that can always be re-examined.
Suitable for people with symptoms such as chest pain, fatigue easily, palpitations, and patients with a high risk of heart disease such as diabetes, high blood pressure, smoking, or having a direct family history of cardiovascular disease. People with risk factors should be examined at least once a year.
