Our Cardiac Evaluation Services

We offer a range of cardiac evaluation services to cater to the diverse needs of our patients. Let’s take a closer look at some specific cardiac evaluation services provided at CareFront.
  • Physical examinations
    • During a routine physical examination, our medical team assesses a patient’s overall health, focusing specifically on their cardiovascular system. Physical examinations serve as a valuable tool for detecting any abnormalities or potential risk factors.
  • Electrocardiograms (ECGs)
    • ECGs are non-invasive tests that measure the electrical activity of the heart. ECGs are used to diagnose heart rhythm abnormalities, such as arrhythmias or atrial fibrillation. This test provides valuable information about the heart’s electrical system and can help guide treatment decisions.
  • Echocardiograms
    • An echocardiogram is a type of ultrasound that uses sound waves to create detailed images of the heart’s structure and function. Echocardiograms are instrumental in diagnosing conditions such as heart valve disease, heart failure, and congenital heart defects.
  • Stress tests
    • A stress test involves monitoring the heart’s activity while the individual exercises. It helps our team evaluate the heart’s response to physical exertion and identify potential problems, such as decreased blood flow or abnormal heart rhythms. Stress tests are especially useful for individuals with symptoms like chest pain or shortness of breath.
  • Lipid profile tests
    • A lipid profile test is a blood test that measures the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood. Abnormal lipid levels can contribute to the development of heart disease, making this test an essential component of cardiac evaluations.
  • Blood pressure monitoring
    • High blood pressure is a significant risk factor for heart disease and other cardiovascular conditions. Regular blood pressure monitoring plays a crucial role in preventing complications and maintaining heart health.
