Cardiology Tests Offered in Premier Hospitals

Our advanced equipment and diagnosis tests help us diagnose diseases from deep within.

  • Electrocardiogram: An electrocardiogram also called an EKG or ECG is a test which records the electrical activity in the heart.
  • Ambulatory ECG: This is a test which you might have probably witnessed in many movies or TV shows if you haven’t seen it for real. An Ambulatory ECG is a test where your heart rhythms are recorded while you perform a few exercises or physical activities. Small metal electrodes are attached to your chest which reads the rhythms and records them in the Holter monitor.
  • Stress Test: This test records the changes in the rhythms when exercising and resting. It checks the performances and limitations of your heart.
  • Echocardiogram: An Echocardiogram provides you with an ultrasound of the structure of your heart, its chambers and the surrounding areas.This test measures how much blood the heart is pumping and can detect any kind of inflammation in the heart.

Our Cardiology Specialist

Our “CARDIAC CATH LAB” With World-class Facilities

A “cardiac cath lab,” also called a cardiac catheterization lab is a special room where specialized equipment is available to perform minimally invasive tests and procedures to diagnose and treat certain cardiovascular diseases.

When a person encounters chest pain or any other symptoms related to heart disease, a heart specialist might suggest a cardiac catheterization to diagnose the precise problem. Premier Hospital offers to perform this minimally invasive procedure to diagnose and treat different heart problems, in our specially equipped catheterization labs.

Our cath lab provides world-class facilities with state-of-art technology and highly experienced doctors. We extended our cath lab facilities on Nov 16, 2019, which was inaugurated by our Chief guests Janab Kasusar Mohiuddin Sahib, MLA, and Janab Mohammed Naseeruddin Sahib, Corporator.

Diagnostic Cardiac Catheterizations – Cath labs contain imaging technology that helps an interventional cardiologist to observe how well the blood flowing from your heart to body parts and back to the heart. The diagnostic procedure involves guiding a catheter(a tiny tube) by the doctor through the arteries. Cardiac catheterizations help the cardiologists diagnose blocked or narrowed arteries due to the accumulation of fat, plaque etc. and also helps to find other problems associated with the arteries and heart. The build-up of fat might result in chest pain and heart attack

Interventional Cardiac Catheterizations – Many heart diseases have been treating in our CATH LAB at Premier Hospital with the help of interventional catheterization procedures, such as:

Coronary angioplasty and stent placement – It is popularly known as balloon angioplasty or percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The procedure done by a cardiologist involves reopening the blocked artery by a small balloon. The balloon, attached to the catheter and guided to the blockage in the artery and inflated. Sometimes a coronary stent is placed to prevent narrowing or closing again in future.

The stent is a small wire that looks like a mesh tube or coil. some stents are even coated with anti-blocking medicine to prevent narrowing of arteries again.

Similarly, coronary atherectomy is a procedure in which the built-up plaque in the artery is removed using a rotating tip fixed at the end of the catheter. Premier Hospitals became the renowed heart speciality hospital in Toli Chowki, Hyderabad as we use advanced technology in our CATH LAB.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Cardiologists diagnose, assess and treat patients with defects and diseases of the heart and the blood vessels, which are known as the cardiovascular system.
Cardiologists are physicians who treat the heart and its diseases using diagnostics and medication. Unlike cardiac surgeons, they do not perform surgical procedures. They see patients with both routine and complex cases of heart disease and heart conditions.
Cardiac surgeons are not cardiologists, or doctors who specialize in diagnosing and treating heart disease. Cardiologists typically refer people to a cardiac surgeon when the need arises, because most cardiologists do not perform heart surgeries themselves
If someone has a heart attack or stroke younger than 55 for men or younger than 65 for women, their family members should consider seeing a preventive cardiologist as well. We can assess their heart disease risk, then provide a plan for regular screening and risk reduction
Finally, examining your neck can reveal possible circulatory problems. Your healthcare provider uses 2 fingers on each side of your neck to feel your carotid pulses. The right and left carotid arteries supply blood to your brain. Weak pulses could show a problem with the aortic valve or with the aorta
