What are the different types of heart health tests?
There are several different types of cardiac tests, including electrocardiograms (EKGs), CT scans, catheterization, echocardiograms, and stress tests. At TKI, we provide EKGs.
- Electrocardiogram (EKG): An EKG detects and records your heart’s electrical activity. For this test, electrodes will be attached to the skin on your chest, arms, and legs. Wires connect the electrodes to a machine that records your heart’s electrical activity.
Am I a candidate?
Candidates for cardiac tests typically include individuals who exhibit symptoms or risk factors associated with heart-related issues. Symptoms may encompass chest pain or discomfort, shortness of breath, irregular heartbeats, and unexplained fatigue. Those with risk factors such as a family history of heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, or a history of smoking may also require cardiac testing.
Additionally, individuals planning to undergo certain surgical procedures or those seeking to assess their overall heart health for preventive reasons may be candidates for these tests.
What are the benefits of cardiac tests?
Catching a heart disease in its early stages makes it easier to treat. Most cardiac tests are painless and play a huge part in preventative medicine, especially with patients with a family history of heart disease or other risk factors.
