You know because of the busy life of people these days, heart diseases are spreading rapidly among them. Lack of exercises, bad food habits, 24/7 hardworking, alcohol usage and mental stress have been the main reasons for more and more heart patients. Some of them we can control and some of them we can’t. For example with the competitiveness of the society we should work hard to win this. Working hard means lack of exercises and unhealthy foods. It means heart diseases. So to prevent this we have to check our heart process occasionally. In this article I will give you some modern medical tests important for heart patients so they can prevent going bad. Let’s see…..

10 Modern Medical Tests For Heart Patients

“The most chronic heart disease is caused by having greediness in your heart. Go for check-ups regularly and learn how to swallow those lumpy pills of generousity. Be kind and be healthy.”
- Israelmore Ayivor

You know because of the busy life of people these days, heart diseases are spreading rapidly among them. Lack of exercises, bad food habits, 24/7 hardworking, alcohol usage and mental stress have been the main reasons for more and more heart patients. Some of them we can control and some of them we can’t. For example with the competitiveness of the society we should work hard to win this. Working hard means lack of exercises and unhealthy foods. It means heart diseases. So to prevent this we have to check our heart process occasionally. In this article I will give you some modern medical tests important for heart patients so they can prevent going bad. Let’s see…..

E.C.G (Electrocardiogram)

  • Electric current flowing through the fiber system that is all over the heart system coordinates the parts of heart
  • Some changes occur in this natural electric current while flowing through S.A node to A.V node in the heart
  • These changes identifying by the machine named Electrocardiography.
  • The graph sheet inserted trace with these changes by this device. It is permanent tracing. This graphical report is the Electrocardiogram
  • ECGs help to identify the inactive places of the heart and heart arrhythmia
  • Corresponding membrane is taken by using electrodes and a type of jelly

If you wanna know about these ECGs please check on How To Get ECGs Properly? It will give you some important facts

Exercise ECG test

  • At first 2 ECGs are getting while standing and lying down. Those strips show the electric activation of the heart while you are in a relaxing mode
  • At the treadmill (exercise machine) electrodes connected to the chest, hands and right leg are using to get ECGs
  • Intensity of exercising change according to Bruce protocol (changing the no. of steps by four steps after every 3 minutes).
  • When we make the heart tired by exercising, oxygen and blood supply to the heart is considerably less. So the ECG changes due to changing electric current
  • Make sure you keep that exercise until the treadmill stops. Also if you’re having a chest pain while doing this inform your doctor immediately
  • If you are getting Beta blockers and Digoxin as medication and if you are an arthritis patient, please inform the doctor before ECG test
  • You have to dress a light suit and take a light meal before this test
  • In modern medical field, this heart process are examine by photos that taken by inserting thallium and sestamibi to the blood

Echocardiography

  • This test is important for studying pericardial effusion abnormalities of valves and ventricles
  • A safe test and comfortable to patient. Light suit is better for this test
  • The main process of this is we can see the movements of the heart in a special screen with using ultra sound waves
  • Blood control and changes can be seen clearly by coloring
  • Noninvasive tech is using for this test mainly

Angiocardiography

  • In this test, a special visual catheter is passing through a vein or artery to the heart
  • Changes in the blood vessels around the heart identify by the radio opaque chemical inserting through this catheter outside
  • Aorta, right and left side of the heart and the coronary arteries are the main sites for angiocardiography
  • All pictures and records are getting through X-rays in this test and they are stored properly
  • Exposing to large no. of X-rays is a problem of this test but many people are going through this worldwide

Phonocardiography

  • Recording heart sounds is the main function and the process of this test
  • Sounds are recording by a special recording device after placing some microphones on the chest
  • This record can chart on a ECG too
  • This test helps the doctor to identify the sounds and murmurs of the heart easily
  • Wearing a light suit is better for checking the chest area

Chest X-ray and fluoroscopy

  • Chest X-ray helps to identify the placing, size and the shape of the heart
  • The main usage of these X-rays is observing the placing of pacemakers and catheters in a HF situation
  • Fluoroscopy is the way we can see the heart and pulsations in a screen by using X-rays
  • This test is important when placing inter venous electrodes and in guiding catheter insertion during cardiac catheterization which I am going to talk about next
  • Light suit is the best and keep away all the things that disturb the clear X-ray

Cardiac catheterization

  • This test must be done under a complete supervision of your heart disease specialist
  • Cardiac catheterization helps to get blood samples, check the pressure of the blood chambers and placing pacemakers
  • How this works is, a long catheter is inserting to the right side of the heart by using a large peripheral vein. For an example at the bend of the elbow
  • Blocks at the coronary arteries can be checked by the contrast medium
  • This is also a major heart test among other medical tests use by the people worldwide at present

Left and right heart catheterization

  • A special catheter enters from the right side of the heart. Pressure of the right ventricle, right atrium, pulmonary artery and pulmonary arterioles are measured
  • Infection of inserting site, venous spasm, cardiac perforation, cardiac arrest, cardiac dysrhythmias might be observed as complications
  • A special catheter enters from the left side of the heart. Process of mitral and aortic valve are observed
  • Some complications are perforation of the heart amid great vessels and dysthymias MI
  • These are also common medical tests those are using worldwide mostly at present

Coronary arteriography

  • This test is for observing left and right coronary arteries. This can observe much clearly by entering a coloring to the heart
  • Treatment level and degree of atherosclerosis can identify by this coronary arteriography test
  • This is also a much known test most people are using these days

Aortography

  • In this test, the catheter enters through brachial or femoral artery
  • Those changes in the great artery and the arteries dividing from the great artery can identify by this test
  • Changes in the coronary arteries dividing from the great artery also can identify easily by using contrast to this test

So now you know about the main and common medical tests coming from the modern medical technology for checking the heart process of a person. It is suitable you doing these things whether a patient or not under the medical supervision because we don’t know how out inside processes going on. So go through this again and find the better one for you with medical help. Be safe guys…..
