    Cardiac Diagnostic Services
    A number of non-invasive investigations into heart disease are available, including;

    1) 24 hour ambulatory electrocardiograph (ECG) monitoring
    This is a simple, unintrusive assessment of the heart rhythm, while the patient carries out their normal activities. The test will identify tachycardia (rapid heartbeat) or bradycardia (slow heartbeat).

    2) 24 hour mini ECG monitoring
    This assessment can monitor intermittent palpitations. The ECG monitor is light, and can be carried around by the patient, and used to record heart activity. The test is ideal for patients who are showing symptoms once or twice a week (or less frequently).

    3) 24 hour blood pressure monitoring
    This can help a doctor decide whether to start treatment for high blood pressure. It is also useful in monitoring patients who are already undergoing treatment.

    4) 2 dimensional echocardiography
    This is a two-dimensional ultrasound heart scan (echocardiography), which is useful in the investigation of hypertension, and defining the cause of breathlessness or heart murmurs.

    Other standard services such as, electrocardiogram and x-ray are also offered at a number of hospitals, please refer to "Electrocardiogram" and "x-ray".
