Here are some common reasons you may need to or have been referred for a cardiologist consultation:

What is a Cardiologist Consultation?

A cardiologist consultation involves a doctor looking into your medical history and doing tests to check for heart problems. Normally, you need a referral from your regular doctor to see a cardiologist. Heartscope has specialised cardiologists who can help you manage and treat any heart conditions that you might have.

What can I expect during the test?

During your visit to the cardiologist, they will inquire about the symptoms you’ve been experiencing and your overall health. To better understand the condition of your heart, they may recommend conducting a few tests:

 

  1. ECG (Electrocardiogram): This test monitors the heart’s electrical activity to detect any irregularities.
  2. Heart Catheterisation: This procedure involves using a slender tube to explore your heart for any blockages or irregularities.
  3. Ultrasound: Sound waves are used in this test to generate images of your heart, allowing the doctor to assess its function.
  4. Heart Biopsy: A small piece of heart tissue is extracted for detailed analysis.
  5. Stress Test with Exercise: This evaluates how your heart performs under physical stress.


These tests will help the cardiologist determine the best course of action for your heart health.

What are the risks of the test?

Consulting with a healthcare professional carries no risks and is a positive step towards understanding and managing your health. Seeking medical advice is always a wise decision.
