Cardiology (from Greek καρδ?? kardi?, "heart" and -λογ?α -logia, "study") is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the heart be it human or animal. The field includes medical diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease and electrophysiology. Physicians who specialize in this field of medicine are called cardiologists, a specialty of internal medicine. Pediatric cardiologists arepediatricians who specialize in cardiology. Physicians who specialize in cardiac surgery are called cardiothoracic surgeons or cardiac surgeons, a specialty of general surgery.

Cardiology deals with the disorder of the heart. Cardiology tests are clinical processes of identifying heart conditions associated with healthy vs. unhealthy, pathologic, heart functions.


To perform the most accurate and precise cardiology tests, at Hi. Tech, we have most modern equipment. Under the guidance of a doctor in-charge, the experienced as well as dedicated team of laboratory technicians of Hi. Tech is rendering a round the clock cardiology diagnostic facility to have an early detection of any kind of heart related diseases.

TMT Test or Treadmill testing or cardiac stress testing is a non-invasive test, which is done to find the stress on the heart. The patient walks on a treadmill while the blood pressure and EKG are monitored. The treadmill test evaluates the heart's response to exercise.

he stress response is induced by exercise or drug stimulation. Cardiac stress tests compare the coronary circulation while the patient is at rest with the same patient's circulation observed during maximum physical exertion, showing any abnormal blood flow to the heart's muscle tissue (the myocardium). The results can be interpreted as a reflection on the general physical condition of the test patient. This test can be used to diagnose ischemic heart disease, and for patient prognosis after a heart attack (myocardial infarction).

The cardiac stress test is done with heart stimulation, either by exercise on a treadmill, pedalling a stationary exercise bicycle ergometer or with intravenous pharmacological stimulation, with the patient connected to anelectrocardiogram (or ECG). People who cannot use their legs may exercise with a bicycle-like crank that they turn with their arms.

 

An electrocardiogram (ECG) records the electrical activity of the heart. The heart produces tiny electrical impulses, which spread through the heart muscle to make the heart contract. These impulses can be detected by the ECG machine.

Electrocardiography (ECG or EKG[1] from Greek: kardia, meaning heart[2]) is the recording of the electrical activity of the heart. Traditionally this is in the form of a transthoracic (across the thorax or chest) interpretation of the electricalactivity of the heart over a period of time, as detected by electrodes attached to the surface of the skin and recorded or displayed by a device external to the body.[3] The recording produced by this noninvasive procedure is termed anelectrocardiogram (also ECG or EKG). It is possible to record ECGs invasively using an implantable loop recorder.

An ECG is used to measure the heart’s electrical conduction system. It picks up electrical impulses generated by the polarization and depolarization of cardiac tissue and translates into a waveform. The waveform is then used to measure the rate and regularity of heartbeats, as well as the size and position of the chambers, the presence of any damage to the heart, and the effects of drugs or devices used to regulate the heart, such as a pacemaker.

Most ECGs are performed for diagnostic or research purposes on human hearts, but may also be performed on animals, usually for diagnosis of heart abnormalities or research.
