CHOLESTEROL TEST

Testing for cholesterol levels involves a blood test to check the levels of different fats in the body. This helps cardiologists estimate the risk of heart disease in a heart check-up. The ratio of different fats and their levels indicate how predisposed the individual is to heart disease. Prior to the test, individuals are required to fast for at least 8hrs i.e overnight.

CARDIOVASCULAR SCREENING

A process of detecting heart disease early by undergoing a thorough history, examination, blood tests, heart scans including echocardiography and/or CT scan of the heart. This is to detect heart disease early so that preventive steps such as lifestyle changes or medication can be started.

ELECTROCARDIOGRAPHY(ECG)

Electrocardiography involves a test where small electrodes (sticky patches) are placed on the chest and attached to a monitor. The electrical activity of the heart is shown as line tracings on paper. This test shows if chest pain is due to blockages in blood vessel. Sometimes, for patients who suffer from heart palpitations, it shows if the heart rate is going very slow or very fast.

CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY

A coronary angioplasty is a procedure used to open clogged or widen blocked or narrowed coronary arteries (the main blood vessels supplying the heart). It is also called percutaneous coronary intervention or “PCI” for short. During the procedure, a heart stent is put in to open the narrowed blood vessel. Heart stent procedures are available here in Singapore. Having a heart stent placed can decrease chances of the blood vessel narrowing.
