Services

Services Provided

We provide diagnostic and management advice for patients presenting with suspected heart failure, high blood pressure, palpitations and high blood lipids (general term for fats and oils in the blood).

Available Tools

We have access to ambulatory blood pressure monitors (a device for measuring blood pressure over a 24hr period), ambulatory ECG (electrocardiography) monitors, cardiac event recorders (which can record up to 72 hours), resting ECG and echocardiography.

We also use in-house point of care, near-patient blood testing for heart failure (NT-proBNP) and when necessary tests to rule out deep vein thrombosis (D-dimer).
