Rest & Exercise Stress ECG

Diagnose and measure the ability of the heart to withstand external stress conditions. People often encounter conditions where their heart responds abnormally while working out or climbing stairs. This can create severe complications if ignored. A person might feel strong palpation, increased heartbeat and chest pains. Aster’s Rest & Exercise Stress ECG aims to diagnose all such conditions when the heart may respond abnormally. The expert doctors measure the ability of the heart to respond to external stress. Aster’s infrastructure supports many labs and high-tech machines, it’s experienced team and the Cardiology Department perform these tests in well-controlled conditions.

Head Up-Tilt Test (HUTT)

To find the cause of fainting spells by taking different tests. Young adults or even children may face vasovagal attacks due to a sudden drop in blood pressure. This reduces the circulation of blood and causes unconsciousness and sudden fainting of the person. Aster’s Head Up-Tilt Test aims at testing your body in various angles to understand the cause of fainting spells. The expert doctors record the heart rate and blood pressure while performing the test. Aster’s strong infrastructure, it’s seasoned team, and the Cardiology Department monitor the patient's heart’s response, oxygen levels and blood pressure in the electrophysiology lab.

Holter Monitoring

It tracks heart rhythm to check and confirm any heart-related problems. Patients with an irregular heartbeat could be suffering from arrhythmia. Under this condition, the patient may experience rapid heartbeat or the heart may become slower-paced. It is a symptom that indicates that the electrical signal coordinating the heartbeat is not working. Arrhythmia is potentially fatal and causes severe complications. A cardiologist will recommend you to undergo an electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG), a common test to diagnose arrhythmia. Holter monitoring is a gift of medical technology that records your uneven heartbeat for 24 to 48 hours continuously. The device is a blessing for patients with a pacemaker as it enables the doctor to study the heart’s activity throughout the day. The cardiology department of the Aster Hospital is ahead of its time. It is equipped with the latest Holter monitor for a thorough examination of the heart and provides an accurate report for proper treatment.

Myocardial Perfusion Imaging Studies

This is a non-invasive imaging test to check the blood flow to the heart muscle and recognize poor areas of blood flow. If a person often experiences chest pain for an extended period or is suspected of coronary artery disease (CAD), he/she needs medical attention from qualified cardiologists. The doctors may recommend a stress myocardial perfusion scan to assess the blood flow, heart muscle damage, etc. Patients who have sustained a heart attack or undergone bypass surgery, angioplasty, or stent placement also need to be examined with the help of myocardial perfusion imaging studies. It is a non-invasive imaging test that assesses the blood flow through the heart muscles and determines if the heart muscle is pumping normally. Aster Hospital’s cardiology department has an exemplary infrastructure with myocardial perfusion imaging studies to detect weak heart muscles and poor blood flow.

Transthoracic & Transoesophageal Echocardiography

This test is performed to visualize and check the performance of aorta, heart and other blood vessels. Patients who suffer from malfunctioning of heart valves or chambers and the heart’s inability to pump blood could be diagnosed with congenital heart valve disease. It involves pulmonary or aortic valves that do not perform properly. Such conditions arise when the valves’ shape and size become irregular, or the flap tissue is insufficient to allow proper blood flow. Patients' conditions may deteriorate if they do not allow timely medical intervention. They need a cardiologist who will prescribe transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography, which will determine the patient's heart condition. The cardiology department of Aster Hospital is furnished with highly developed medical equipment that examines the patient’s condition accurately for correct treatment. Transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography prevent heart failure and death.

Lowest Radiation Dose Cath Lab Facility

This Catheterisation Lab (Cath Lab), with the help of Allura Clarity system, reduces radiation doses by 70%, offering significant benefit to the patient as well as staff. Used for Interventional Cardiology and Neurology, the low radiation facilitates repeated investigation if necessary and is also safe for children.

Flat panel Bi-plane Hybrid Cath Lab

The Biplane Hybrid Cath Lab Unit, which works in a sterile operation theatre environment, combines the traditional diagnostic functions of a Cath lab with surgical functions of an operating room. Designed to undertake complex Neuro vascular and peripheral vascular procedures and Hybrid surgical/ endovascular procedures, the Cathlabs here are the first to have the option of ‘Clarity’, an ingenious system that reduces the radiation dose by upto 70%, which is of significant benefit to the patients. The functions of the unit include:

Biplane Cath Lab
Bi Plane Cath Labs are capable of capturing 3D images in real time, and come with added components like 3D road mapping and post processing to help neurovascular procedures. It can perform interventional procedures in lesser time with lesser usage of contrast, in comparison to single plane.

Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA)
A type of Fluoroscopy technique used in interventional radiology to clearly visualise blood vessels in a bony or dense soft tissue environment, images are generated using contrast medium by subtracting a ‘pre-contrast image’. Very helpful in diagnosing Neurological problems, the advantage of DSA is that the interference of bony structures can be eliminated.

3D Rotational Angiography
3D rotational angiography provides an image of a particular vessel or chamber while the camera rotates around the patient in a predefined arc, enabling viewing of the structure from multiple angles with a single injection of contrast medium, thereby saving the contrast load and its side effects. A faster procedure compared to conventional Angiography, it is beneficial for patients for whom dye load needs to be restricted and those who require abnormal kidney function test.

CT Like images
With the soft tissue imaging feature that provides enables CT like images, the patient need not to be sent for a CT examination separately. This is a great advantage for neurovascular cases where the mobility of the patient is restricted and timelines are crucial. Interventionist can access CT-like imaging right on the angio system and inturn the soft tissue, bone and other brain structures before, during, or after an interventional procedure. 3D soft tissue imaging supports diagnosis, planning, interventions and treatment follow-up.

Hybrid Cath Lab
In a hybrid application, the Cath lab doubles as an operating room so that a patient undergoing a cardiac cath procedure can have a surgery if required. Enabling the Doctor to address the patient needs quickly, eliminating the need to schedule an additional surgical procedure. As the hybrid cath lab can turn to any angle as required by the interventionist, and can be placed in the corner of the OT when not in use.

Flat panel Bi-plane Hybrid Cath Lab Medcity

The Biplane Hybrid Cath Lab Unit, which works in a sterile operation theatre environment, combines the traditional diagnostic functions of a Cath lab with surgical functions of an operating room. Designed to undertake complex Neuro vascular and peripheral vascular procedures and Hybrid surgical/ endovascular procedures, the Cathlabs here are the first to have the option of ‘Clarity’, an ingenious system that reduces the radiation dose by upto 70%, which is of significant benefit to the patients. The functions of the unit include: Biplane Cath Lab Bi Plane Cath Labs are capable of capturing 3D images in real time, and come with added components like 3D road mapping and post processing to help neurovascular procedures. It can perform interventional procedures in lesser time with lesser usage of contrast, in comparison to single plane. Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA) A type of Fluoroscopy technique used in interventional radiology to clearly visualise blood vessels in a bony or dense soft tissue environment, images are generated using contrast medium by subtracting a ‘pre-contrast image’. Very helpful in diagnosing Neurological problems, the advantage of DSA is that the interference of bony structures can be eliminated.

3D Rotational Angiography - 3D rotational angiography provides an image of a particular vessel or chamber while the camera rotates around the patient in a predefined arc, enabling viewing of the structure from multiple angles with a single injection of contrast medium, thereby saving the contrast load and its side effects. A faster procedure compared to conventional Angiography, it is beneficial for patients for whom dye load needs to be restricted and those who require abnormal kidney function test. CT Like images With the soft tissue imaging feature that provides enables CT like images, the patient need not to be sent for a CT examination separately. This is a great advantage for neurovascular cases where the mobility of the patient is restricted and timelines are crucial. Interventionist can access CT-like imaging right on the angio system and inturn the soft tissue, bone and other brain structures before, during, or after an interventional procedure. 3D soft tissue imaging supports diagnosis, planning, interventions and treatment follow-up. Hybrid Cath Lab In a hybrid application, the Cath lab doubles as an operating room so that a patient undergoing a cardiac cath procedure can have a surgery if required. Enabling the Doctor to address the patient needs quickly, eliminating the need to schedule an additional surgical procedure. As the hybrid cath lab can turn to any angle as required by the interventionist, and can be placed in the corner of the OT when not in use.

Cardiac ductal ligation in NICU
Cardiac ductal ligation in NICU

Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is a heart defect that’s present at birth. When the condition is present, a vein that normally closes at birth (the ductus arteriosus) stays open. The result is that oxygen-rich blood that should be circulating into the body instead goes back to the lungs. Cardiac ductal ligation is a procedure to repair this problem.

High frequency neonatal ventilation and conventional mode
High frequency neonatal ventilation and conventional mode

High-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) is a lung-protective strategy that can be utilized in the full spectrum of patient populations ranging from neonatal to adults with acute lung injury.

Special comprehensive warmers with resuscitation facility
Special comprehensive warmers with resuscitation facility

Incubators and radiant warmers are used to maintain the body temperature of newborn infants. This is best done so that the energy expended for metabolic heat production is minimized.

LED phototherapy, Double volume exchange transfusion
LED phototherapy, Double volume exchange transfusion

These lights emit light at wavelengths that are most effectively absorbed by bilirubin and can be customized by using varying proportions of blue, blue-green and green lights. Whereas double volume exchange transfusion is replacing the baby's total blood volume twice, leaving the intravascular amount the same.

Partial exchange transfusion
Partial exchange transfusion

A partial exchange transfusion is a procedure performed to correct polycythaemia or severe anaemia without hypovolaemia. This can be performed using either the one catheter or two catheter push pull technique.

CPAP/ High flow ventilation
CPAP/ High flow ventilation

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is a means of providing respiratory support to neonates with either upper airway obstruction or respiratory failure. Respiratory failure constitutes either failure of ventilation or failure of lung function. 

Peritoneal dialysis
Peritoneal dialysis

Peritoneal dialysis is frequently required in NICU, and it is a fundamental, rational, safe and effective renal replacement therapy method in infants with Acute kidney injury and metabolic disorders.

Bedside echo, cranial USG & x-ray
Bedside echo, cranial USG & x-ray

Bedside echocardiography is often performed on our neonatal unit usually to diagnose or exclude a structural heart defect, but also to evaluate pulmonary haemodynamics and cardiac function. Cranial ultrasonography (cUS) is an excellent tool to detect the most frequently occurring brain abnormalities in preterm and full-term neonates, to study the evolution of lesions, and to follow brain maturation. X-ray examinations of the lungs is an important element in the evaluation of the neonates and their respiratory function. It is often necessary to perform a large number of X-ray examinations depending upon the infant's birthweight, gestational age and respiratory problems.

USG guided central venous & arterial access
USG guided central venous & arterial access

A central venous line is most often put in when a baby cannot get a percutaneous inserted central catheter (PICC) or midline central catheter (MCC). A central venous line can be used to give nutrients or medicines to a baby. It is only put in when babies need IV nutrients or medicines for a long time. Whereas peripheral arterial access readily allows sampling of arterial blood for arterial blood gas analysis, haematology and biochemistry and can also be used for removal of blood during exchange transfusion.

It involves passing a thin, lighted instrument into the urethra and bladder and is generally performed in an outpatient setting. Cystoscopy is a medical procedure used in urology to look inside the urinary tract. The cystoscope can magnify the bladder and urethral lining, allowing the doctor to detect any abnormalities.

During a cystoscopy, the doctor may take biopsies of abnormal-looking tissue, remove stones, or insert a stent to keep the urethra open. The procedure is generally performed in an outpatient setting and takes anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes.

Cystoscopy can be used to diagnose various conditions such as bladder stones, urinary tract infections, and tumors. It can also be used to perform procedures such as cystolithotripsy, which involves the use of a laser to break up bladder stones so that they can be easily passed out of the body.

A cystoscopy can be used to diagnose and treat a variety of urinary tract problems, including urinary tract infections, bladder and kidney stones, and tumors. It may also be used to identify the cause of recurrent urinary tract infections, blood in the urine, or difficulty urinating.

Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP): This is a procedure used to treat an enlarged prostate by removing tissue from the prostate through the urethra using a tool inserted through a cystoscope.

Transurethral bladder tumor resection (TURBT): This is a procedure used to remove tumors from the bladder through the urethra using a tool inserted through a cystoscope. This procedure is used to diagnose and treat bladder cancer, as well as other diseases of the urinary tract. It involves cutting out the tumor using a tool while the patient is under anesthesia, and can be used to treat early-stage bladder cancer.

(VIU) Cystoscopy (Cyst Lithotripsy):  This is a medical procedure that involves the use of an endoscope to examine and treat conditions affecting the lower urinary tract, which includes the bladder and urethra. During the procedure, a thin, flexible tube with a camera attached to its end is inserted through the urethra into the bladder, allowing the doctor to view the urinary tract on a monitor.

Cystolitholapaxy: Cystolitholapaxy is a procedure that involves the use of a cystoscope to remove bladder stones. The stones are broken up into small pieces using a laser or other instruments and then removed from the bladder. This procedure is minimally invasive and can be done in a doctor's office or outpatient setting. It is often used as an alternative to open bladder surgery, which is more invasive and requires a longer recovery period. The procedure is typically done under anesthesia and the stones are removed via a tube that is inserted into the bladder. The procedure typically takes around 30 minutes to an hour and patients can usually resume normal activities within a day or two.

Urethrotomy: Urethrotomy is a procedure in which urologists use a cystoscope to remove scar tissue from the urethra, which can cause blockages and difficulty urinating. The procedure typically involves inserting a small tube into the urethra and cutting away the scar tissue. Urethrotomy can be performed on an outpatient basis, and the recovery time is usually short. In some cases, the procedure may need to be repeated to ensure the blockage is completely removed.

Ureteroscopy

In this procedure, the surgeon of our urology team makes insertion of a thin, flexible tube with a camera on the end (ureteroscope) through the urethra and into the ureter to examine the lining of the ureter and kidney. The ureteroscope allows the physician to view the ureter and kidney and identify any abnormalities, such as stones, tumors, or other blockages. The ureteroscope can also be used to take biopsies of the kidney and remove stones or other obstructions. This procedure is minimally invasive and allows for a detailed examination of the ureter and kidney without the need for open surgery.

This procedure involves the insertion of a thin, flexible tube with a camera on the end (nephroscope) through a small incision in the back and into the kidney to examine the kidney for stones or other abnormalities.

Nephroscopy is typically done as an outpatient procedure and does not typically require anesthesia. The procedure usually takes between 30 minutes and an hour and a half, depending on the complexity of the medical problem. Following the procedure, the patient may have some discomfort and may need to stay in the hospital for observation.

Nephroscopy is used to diagnose and treat a variety of conditions including kidney stones, tumors, cysts, and infections. It can also be used to evaluate the function of the kidneys, ureter, and bladder

Pre-Cutaneous Nephrolithotomy

It is a medical procedure, in which our doctors use an endoscope to examine and treat conditions affecting the upper urinary tract, which includes the kidneys and ureters. During the procedure, a thin, flexible tube with a camera attached to its end is inserted through a small incision in the skin and guided through the urinary tract to the affected area.

Pre-Cutaneous Nephrolithotomy can be used to diagnose and treat conditions such as kidney stones, tumors, and blockages in the urinary tract. The procedure may involve the use of instruments to remove or break up the stones so that they can be easily passed out of the body. It is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgery that can offer faster recovery times and less scarring.

Lithotripsy

This is a non-invasive medical procedure used by trained and skilled surgeons of our urology department to break up kidney stones, bladder stones, or ureteral stones into small pieces that can be easily passed out of the body through urine. The procedure uses shock waves to break up the stones, eliminating the need for surgical incisions.

Lithotripsy Whitefield

This is a non-invasive medical procedure used by trained and skilled surgeons of our urology department to break up kidney stones, bladder stones, or ureteral stones into small pieces that can be easily passed out of the body through urine. The procedure uses shock waves to break up the stones, eliminating the need for surgical incisions.

There are two main types of lithotripsy:

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL): This procedure involves the use of shock waves generated outside the body, which are focused on the kidney stones to break them into smaller pieces that can be passed out of the body through urine.

Laser Lithotripsy: This procedure involves the use of a laser to break up kidney stones into small pieces that can be easily passed out of the body through urine.

Lithotripsy is a non-invasive procedure and does not require any surgical incisions, reducing the risk of infection and complications associated with surgery. Lithotripsy has a high success rate in breaking up kidney stones and ureteral stones, making it an effective treatment option for these conditions. It is generally an outpatient procedure, and patients can usually return to their normal activities within a few days after the procedure. Lithotripsy is a safe and effective treatment option for kidney stones, bladder stones, or ureteral stones, and offers many advantages over traditional surgical methods.

TRUS Guided Biopsy

TRUS stands for Transrectal Ultrasound, and it is a type of imaging technique that is commonly used by our urologists to visualize the prostate gland. A TRUS-guided biopsy is a procedure that involves taking small samples of tissue from the prostate gland using a biopsy needle under the guidance of transrectal ultrasound.

TRUS stands for Transrectal Ultrasound, and it is a type of imaging technique that is commonly used by our urologists to visualize the prostate gland. A TRUS-guided biopsy is a procedure that involves taking small samples of tissue from the prostate gland using a biopsy needle under the guidance of transrectal ultrasound.

The procedure is usually performed in an outpatient setting and typically takes around 30-45 minutes to complete. Before the procedure, the patient is usually given a mild sedative to help them relax and reduce any discomfort they may experience during the procedure.

During the procedure, the patient lies on their side, and a lubricated ultrasound probe is inserted into the rectum. The probe emits sound waves that bounce off the prostate gland, creating a real-time image of the gland on a monitor. The urologist uses this image to guide a biopsy needle to the areas of the prostate gland where abnormalities are detected.

The biopsy needle is inserted through the rectal wall and into the prostate gland, where it takes small samples of tissue. The number of tissue samples taken varies depending on the size and location of the abnormalities detected. Typically, 10-12 samples are taken.

After the procedure, the patient may experience some mild discomfort and bleeding from the rectum, but this usually resolves within a few days. Results from the biopsy are usually available within a few days to a week, and the urologist will discuss the results with the patient and recommend further treatment if necessary.

MR TRUS Guided Biopsy of the Prostate

MR-TRUS (Magnetic Resonance-Transrectal Ultrasound) guided biopsy of the prostate is a type of diagnostic procedure used by our doctors to detect and diagnose prostate cancer. It combines the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) to guide the biopsy needle precisely to the suspicious areas of the prostate gland.

MR-TRUS (Magnetic Resonance-Transrectal Ultrasound) guided biopsy of the prostate is a type of diagnostic procedure used by our doctors to detect and diagnose prostate cancer. It combines the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) to guide the biopsy needle precisely to the suspicious areas of the prostate gland.

During the procedure, the patient is placed in an MRI scanner, and images are taken of the prostate gland. The MRI images are then used to create a 3D map of the prostate, which helps the urologist identify the suspicious areas for biopsy. The patient is then moved to a TRUS machine, and a probe is inserted into the rectum. The TRUS machine uses sound waves to create images of the prostate gland, and the 3D map created from the MRI images is overlaid onto the TRUS images to guide the biopsy needle precisely to the suspicious areas.

The combination of MRI and TRUS allows for more accurate identification of suspicious areas within the prostate gland. The 3D map created from the MRI images helps to guide the biopsy needle more precisely to the suspicious areas of the prostate, increasing the chances of detecting cancer. The use of MRI imaging can help to identify areas of the prostate that are more likely to cause complications during biopsy, such as bleeding or infection. This information can be used to avoid these areas during the biopsy procedure.

Fibroscan

FibroScan is a valuable tool for assessing liver fibrosis, typically used in conjunction with other clinical and laboratory evaluations to provide a comprehensive assessment of liver health. The results of FibroScan, along with additional tests and patient history, help gastroenterologists and hepatologists in diagnosing liver diseases, monitoring disease progression, and determining appropriate treatment strategies.
The FibroScan procedure involves the use of a specialized ultrasound probe to measure liver stiffness. The patient lies on a table, and the probe is placed on the skin surface over the liver. The probe sends a vibration through the liver, and the resulting shear wave speed is measured. The liver stiffness is then calculated based on the speed of the shear waves, which correlates with the degree of fibrosis.
It's primarily used to assess the presence and extent of liver fibrosis, a condition often associated with hepatitis, alcoholic liver disease, fatty liver, and chronic liver diseases (cirrhosis of the liver).
It is a non-invasive, quick, convenient, and repeatable procedure that reduces the need for Liver Biopsy.

FibroScan is a valuable tool for assessing liver fibrosis, typically used in conjunction with other clinical and laboratory evaluations to provide a comprehensive assessment of liver health. The results of FibroScan, along with additional tests and patient history, help gastroenterologists and hepatologists in diagnosing liver diseases, monitoring disease progression, and determining appropriate treatment strategies.
The FibroScan procedure involves the use of a specialized ultrasound probe to measure liver stiffness. The patient lies on a table, and the probe is placed on the skin surface over the liver. The probe sends a vibration through the liver, and the resulting shear wave speed is measured. The liver stiffness is then calculated based on the speed of the shear waves, which correlates with the degree of fibrosis.
It's primarily used to assess the presence and extent of liver fibrosis, a condition often associated with hepatitis, alcoholic liver disease, fatty liver, and chronic liver diseases (cirrhosis of the liver).
It is a non-invasive, quick, convenient, and repeatable procedure that reduces the need for Liver Biopsy.

Triage Whitefield

The triage is an area where the patients are segregated based on the severity of the emergency and thereafter directed to appropriate areas of care. Our two-bed triage is staffed by a resident in emergency medicine along with a paramedic and a staff nurse who are trained adequately. Most patients are initially assessed at triage and then passed to another area of the department, or another area of the hospital, with their waiting time determined by their clinical needs. However, some patients may complete their treatment at the triage stage, for instance, if the condition is very minor and can be treated quickly, if only advice is required, or if the emergency department is not a suitable point of care for the patient. Conversely, patients with evidently serious conditions, such as cardiac arrest, will bypass triage altogether and move straight to the appropriate part of the department.

A trained healthcare professional, such as a cardiologist or a trained technician, will analyze the EKG results to determine if there are any abnormalities in the heart's rhythm or structure. The results of an EKG can provide valuable information about a patient's heart health and help guide treatment decisions.

Echocardiography-3D
Three-dimensional echocardiography (3D-echo) is a medical imaging technique that allows physicians to visualize the heart in three dimensions. Unlike traditional 2D echocardiography, 3D-echo provides a detailed and comprehensive view of the heart's structure and function. This technique uses specialized ultrasound equipment and software to create a highly detailed 3D image of the heart and its surrounding structures.3D-echo is commonly used to diagnose and monitor a variety of heart conditions, including congenital heart defects, valvular heart disease, and heart failure. By providing a more complete picture of the heart's structure and function, 3D-echo can help physicians make more accurate diagnoses and develop more effective treatment plans.

Transthoracic Echocardiograph
A transthoracic electrocardiogram is a noninvasive method of evaluating the electrical activity of the heart. A chest wall electrode is placed to record the electrical signals produced by the heart. Healthcare professionals can then analyze these signals for abnormalities by amplifying and recording them. 
Transthoracic electrocardiograms can provide information regarding a person's heart rhythm, heart rate, and overall health. Abnormalities in the test results may indicate conditions such as arrhythmias, heart attacks, or other cardiac abnormalities. This information can be used to guide further diagnostic testing or to develop a treatment plan for the patient. 

3D Transesophageal Echocardiography
Three-D Trans esophageal Electrocardiography is an essential diagnostic tool that helps doctors identify and manage a wide range of heart conditions. It is performed to assess the heart's condition and its functioning. This test is carried out by inserting a probe into the esophagus, allowing a more detailed view of the heart and its structures. During the procedure, the patient is given a sedative to relax. The procedure includes the insertion of a flexible tube with a transducer attached at the end of it. This transducer sends and receives high-frequency sound waves converted into heart images. The procedure usually takes about an hour, and the patient is monitored closely throughout. Three-dimensional Transesophageal Electrocardiography provides detailed information about heart structure and function. It is commonly used to diagnose heart abnormalities, including congenital heart disease, valve disease, and arrhythmias. This test is also used to monitor treatment effectiveness and to evaluate the results of heart surgery.

Dobutamine Stress Echo and Contrast Echocardiography
Dobutamine Stress Echo and Contrast Echocardiography are safe and noninvasive imaging tests used to examine heart conditions. They are performed by trained and skilled healthcare professionals in our Cardiology Team
Dobutamine Stress Echo is a test that combines the use of echocardiography and dobutamine, a medication that increases the heart rate and blood pressure. During the test, the patient is given dobutamine through an IV while an echocardiogram is performed. The test is used to evaluate the function of the heart and to diagnose conditions such as coronary artery disease and heart failure.
Contrast Echocardiography is a type of echocardiogram that uses a contrast agent to enhance the images of the heart. The contrast agent is injected into a vein in the arm and travels to the heart, where it makes the heart chambers and valves easier to see on the echocardiogram. This test is used to evaluate the heart's structure and function and to diagnose conditions such as heart valve disease and congenital heart defects.

Stress testing (exercise or pharmacological)
Stress testing is a valuable tool in the field of cardiology. It is used to evaluate the function of the heart during physical activity. This test is designed to detect any abnormalities or irregularities in the heart's function that may not be evident at rest. The Cardiology Department of Aster Whitefield Hospital provides the facility with exercise stress tests and pharmacologic stress tests to its patients.
Exercise stress tests involve the patient performing physical activity while being monitored to evaluate the heart's response. Pharmacologic stress tests involve the use of medication to increase the heart rate and simulate physical activity.
These stress tests are used by our doctors to diagnose coronary artery disease, a condition where the arteries that supply blood to the heart become narrow or blocked. The test can also be used to assess the severity of heart valve disease and pulmonary hypertension.

Cardiac CT scan
A cardiac CT scan is a non-invasive imaging diagnostic test usually recommended for patients with a high risk of heart disease or those who experience symptoms such as chest pain or shortness of breath. It uses X-ray technology to produce detailed images of the heart and its surrounding blood vessels. The test involves the injection of a contrast dye that highlights the blood vessels and the heart. This dye allows the doctor to see detailed images of the heart and its chambers, as well as any blockages in the coronary arteries. It also allows the doctor to assess the function of the heart valves and detect any signs of heart muscle damage.

Cardiac MRI
Cardiac MRI, also known as magnetic resonance imaging, is a medical imaging technique used to visualize the heart and its surrounding structures. This non-invasive test uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves, and a computer to generate detailed images of the heart's anatomy and function.
Cardiac MRI is used to diagnose a variety of heart conditions, including heart disease, heart failure, and congenital heart defects. It can also be used to monitor the progression of these conditions over time and to assess the effectiveness of treatment.
Cardiac MRI is a safe and painless procedure that typically takes 30 minutes to an hour. During a cardiac MRI, the patient lies down on a table that slides into a tunnel-like machine. The machine creates a strong magnetic field around the body, which aligns hydrogen atoms. Radio waves are then used to stimulate the hydrogen atoms, causing them to emit signals that are picked up by the machine. These signals are used to create heart images.
The MRI results are reviewed by our expert and qualified radiologists or cardiologist. They can then provide detailed and accurate reports to doctors, helping them to make the best decisions for their patients.

Holter monitoring
It is a valuable tool in diagnosing and treating heart conditions. It provides a detailed analysis of a patient's heart activity over 24 hours, and doctors can make more informed decisions about their treatment plan. This test is typically used to monitor patients with irregular heartbeats or other heart-related symptoms. During the test, a small, portable device called a Holter monitor is attached to the patient's chest with sticky patches. 
The Holter monitor continuously records the patient's heart activity for the entire 24-hour period. This allows doctors to analyze the patient's heart rhythms and identify any abnormalities or irregularities. 
Patients need to refrain from any conversational behavior during the test. This includes talking directly to others or engaging in activities that may interfere with the accuracy of the test results. Patients should also avoid getting the monitor wet or removing it during the testing period. 

Event monitoring (long-term ECG monitoring)
Event monitoring, also known as long-term ECG monitoring, is a diagnostic test that records the electrical activity of the heart over an extended period. This test is used by our cardiologists to diagnose heart rhythm problems that may not be detected during a routine electrocardiogram (ECG) or stress test.
During event monitoring, a small, portable device called a Holter monitor is worn by the patient for up to two weeks. The monitor records the patient's heart rhythm and stores the data for later analysis by a healthcare provider.
Event monitoring is recommended by our doctors often for patients who experience symptoms such as palpitations, dizziness, or fainting spells that may be related to an irregular heart rhythm. The test can help identify the specific type of arrhythmia that is causing the symptoms, allowing for more targeted treatment.
Once the monitoring period is complete, the data collected by the Holter monitor is analyzed by our experts. The results of the test then help us guide treatment decisions and may indicate the need for further testing or intervention.

Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring
Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is a non-invasive method of monitoring blood pressure over 24 hours. ABPM is useful for people with suspected white coat hypertension, where blood pressure readings are higher in a clinical setting than in everyday life. It can also help diagnose masked hypertension, where blood pressure readings are normal in a clinical setting but higher during daily activities. 
It involves wearing a small device connected to a cuff around the upper arm. ABPM is typically done over 24 hours and requires the person to wear the device throughout that time. They are asked to go about their normal daily routine, including sleeping, while the device records their blood pressure. After the monitoring period is complete, the data is downloaded and analyzed by a healthcare provider.
As the device records blood pressure regularly throughout the day and night, it provides a more accurate picture of blood pressure. ABPM results can help our doctors guide treatment decisions, such as adjusting medication dosages or making lifestyle changes to lower blood pressure. It is a vital tool in hypertension management and prevention of associated complications.

TMT treadmill exercise testing
TMT, or treadmill exercise testing, is an important tool used by our cardiologists in the diagnosis and treatment of many heart conditions. These conditions include coronary artery disease, heart failure, and arrhythmias. TMT is used to assess cardiovascular health, detect underlying heart conditions, and evaluate treatment effectiveness. 
This non-invasive procedure involves placing the patient on a treadmill and monitoring their heart rate, blood pressure, and ECG while they walk or run at increasing levels of intensity. 
During a TMT, the patient is connected to a series of electrodes that measure the heart's electrical activity. The electrodes are attached to the patient's chest, arms, and legs, and are connected to an ECG machine that records the heart's electrical signals. As the patient walks or runs on the treadmill, the intensity of the exercise is gradually increased to assess the heart's response to physical activity.

Tilt table testing
The tilt table test, also known as the "Passive Head-up Tilt Test" or "Head Upright Tilt Test," is a diagnostic procedure used to monitor blood pressure, heart rhythm, and heart rate in a beat-by-beat manner by adjusting the angle of a specialized table on which the patient lies. This test is commonly employed by cardiologists to evaluate patients who frequently experience fainting or exhibit symptoms such as light-headedness.
Fainting medically referred to as syncope, can be caused by various underlying medical conditions involving the heart, nervous system, or inadequate blood flow to the brain.
During a tilt table test, the patient is positioned on a table equipped with a metal footboard to support their feet. Blood pressure cuffs are then placed on one of the patient's arms and a finger, and these cuffs are connected to monitors. The finger cuff continually inflates and deflates, while the arm cuff periodically measures the patient's blood pressure, typically every four to ten minutes.
Electrodes are applied to the patient's chest using adhesive patches and connected to an electrocardiogram (EKG) machine. The EKG records the electrical activity of the heart, which is graphically represented on paper or displayed as a series of lines on a monitor. These lines depict the heart rate and rhythm throughout the test.
All in all, the tilt table test is a valuable tool utilized by our cardiologists to assess patients experiencing episodes of fainting or related symptoms. It involves adjusting the angle of a specialized table while closely monitoring the patient's blood pressure, heart rhythm, and heart rate using cuffs, finger probes, and an electrocardiogram.
 

Diagnostics & Amenities

Aster offers you cutting-edge tools and methods to diagnose your cardiac issue. At Aster, we employ modern technology to assist cardiologists in diagnosing heart conditions and managing patients easily. The readily available tests, modern treatments, and amenities help you resume your healthy life. The non-invasive cardiac diagnostic tests offered at Aster Hospital include:

l CT coronary angiography (CTCA)

This non-invasive imaging technique helps your cardiologist visualize the coronary arteries and assess the blood flow within them. It's a computed tomography (CT) scan, focusing on the heart and its blood vessels. It provides detailed images of the coronary arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle.

l Cardiac catheterization

It is also known as cardiac cath. It is an invasive procedure that helps to diagnose and treat various cardiac conditions. During this procedure, the expert cardiologist inserts a thin, flexible tube into a blood vessel, often through the groin or the wrist. They are then guided to the heart and its blood vessels.

l Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)

This is a common diagnostic test that records the electrical activity of your heart. This valuable diagnostic tool assesses your heart's rhythm and detects various heart conditions. During an ECG, electrodes are placed on your skin in specific parts of your chest, arms, and legs. These electrodes pick up the electrical signals produced by your heart and patterns are generated on paper.

 

Diagnostics and Amenities

Aster provides you with the best facilities to help diagnose various cardiac conditions. At Aster, we use modern technology to help doctors diagnose various cardiac ailments non-invasively. 

The tests are readily available at Aster and can be taken by anyone who wants to know their cardiac health condition.

The diagnostic stress tests provided at Aster Hospital include:

  • Exercise stress test: This is the most common and basic stress test. It involves walking on a treadmill or riding a stationary bicycle. A well-trained physiologist monitors the speed and elevation of the treadmill. If one can't exercise, one is given medication to make the heart beat harder and faster. An ECG records the heart's electrical activity and checks for signs of coronary artery disease.

  • Exercise stress echocardiogram: An exercise stress echocardiogram is similar to a basic stress test but provides more detail on how the heart functions. The cardiac imaging test uses sound waves to evaluate blood flow through the heart as well as the various chambers of the heart.

  • Nuclear stress test: This test uses safe levels of a radioactive substance and a cardiac imaging scan to assess the heart's function. The cardiologist compares the amount of blood that flows through the heart at rest and during exercise.

Nuclear stress tests are used to:

  • Determine the severity of the blockage

  • Assess whether previous treatments are working or not

  • To avoid invasive heart tests

  • Cardiac rehabilitation stress test

Rehabilitation is a medically supervised program that helps people with heart disease to become physically active. It includes an entrance stress test as well as an exit stress test.

Diagnostics & Amenities

Aster has top medical facilities, the latest diagnostic equipment, and techniques to help understand your cardiac condition. Rest assured that at Aster, you will get access to several modern medical technologies that can help doctors plan the best possible treatment plan for congenital cardiac ailments and help them manage adult and pediatric patients with the best outcome.

Reasons to test for congenital heart disease

  • Insulin dependent diabetes in mother

  • Family history of heart defects

  • Abnormality of other organs

  • Twin to twin transfusion

  • Sjogren's syndrome

  • Systemic Lupus

  • Rubella

  • Hydrops

  • Increased nuchal translucency

  • if the doctor detects a faulty fetal heartbeat

The mother is advised tests like:

Fetal echocardiogram:

This is a special type of ultrasound done similar to detect the shape, position, size and working of a developing heart to check for defects. It is generally advised between 18-24 weeks of pregnancy. Unfortunately, in some cases the problem is evident only after the baby is born.

Other tests may include:

  • Chest X-rays
  • MRI
  • ECG
  • Pulse oximetry: It checks for oxygen saturation of blood using a simple pulse oximeter on the fingernail.
  • Heart CT scan
  • Stress tests: These tests check for abnormalities when your heart is at optimal capacity. These tests are done on a treadmill or stationary bicycle.
  • Transesophageal ECG
  • Cardiac Catheterisation: Catheters are inserted from a leg vein to the heart, to view and check for heart defects.

Most cases of CHD may need some medical intervention at some point in life.

The treatment protocols for CHDs largely depend on the severity of the defect and the symptoms affecting the quality of life.

Treatment options include the following:

Medications to help treat

  • Irregular heart rate
  • Blood pressure
  • Prevent the formation of blood clots
  • Efficient pumping of the heart
  • Implantation of heart devices
  • Cardiac defibrillators
  • Pacemakers

Catheter/ minimally invasive heart procedures

A small camera and instruments are inserted via a vein in the leg up to the heart, which helps the surgeon correct heart defects.

Open-heart surgeries

These are performed well, non-invasive, or minimally. Invasive procedures don’t help. Open-heart surgeries usually repair or replace heart valves, close holes or widen blood vessels.

Heart transplant

A heart transplant is done when there is no other way to correct the heart defect, or it is too severe. A healthy donor heart is replaced in place of the diseased heart.

Diagnostics & Amenities

The correct diagnosis is the first step to successful clinical outcomes. The multidisciplinary strategy at Aster accomplishes this. The team of experts at Aster will consider your requirements, assess your health status, and work with other specialties on challenging conditions to develop the best possible treatment strategy.

One such diagnostic test is a Doppler study. Doppler is a non-invasive imaging test that plays a crucial role in healthcare.

During the Doppler study, your body receives sound waves from the ultrasound probe. When these sound waves hit moving red blood cells in your vessels, they reverberate and return to the probe.

Then the probe picks up these waves. The computer recognises the variation in the pitch of the sound waves sent and their echoes. Thus, determines the direction of the blood flow and the speed with which blood moves.

Doppler provides information on

  • Your blood circulation, such as how fast or slow blood is moving
  • If there is any blockage in the blood flow
  • Blood pooling in a blood vessel
  • Blood flowing in the wrong direction

The different kind of Doppler studies available includes

Color Doppler

This medical imaging technique uses ultrasound waves to visualize blood flow in your body in real time. Here, the computer changes the sound waves into different colors that show the direction in which blood flows. Thus, color doppler assigns colors to different velocities of blood flow. This helps your doctor to assess blood circulation, detect abnormalities, and evaluate conditions like vascular diseases, heart problems, and more.

Spectral Doppler

Spectral Doppler is another significant technique in medical ultrasound that analyses the velocity and frequency of blood flow in your blood vessels. This gives a graphical representation of blood flow over a period of time.

This displays a graph called a spectral waveform. Spectral waveform helps your doctor to assess the direction, speed, and turbulence in the blood flow within your blood vessels. Thus, it helps in the diagnosis and monitoring of various heart conditions.

Duplex ultrasound

This combination ultrasound technique combines conventional ultrasound images with Doppler ultrasound. The two types of ultrasound combined by this include B-mode (2D) imaging and traditional Doppler ultrasound.

The unique quality of this test is it can check the width of your blood vessels. Thus, it can help your doctor in detecting blockages.

In this technique, traditional ultrasound helps your doctor visualize structures like blood vessels or organs. Color and spectral Doppler techniques help your physician assess the blood flow. With duplex ultrasound, your doctor can diagnose conditions like blockage in blood vessels, stenosis, aneurysms, and other vascular conditions.

In short, duplex ultrasound provides a comprehensive view of anatomy and blood flow characteristics.

Power Doppler

This is yet another advanced ultrasound technique that helps detect changes in your blood flow. Unlike other Doppler tests that measure frequency shift, power Doppler measures the amplitude or power of the Doppler signal.

Another unique feature of this test is its sensitivity to slow flow and low velocities. Thus plays a significant role in cases where blood flow signals are weak. Thus, doctors use this test to detect blood flow in small vessels or assess perfusion in some tissues.

Transcranial Doppler ultrasound

This medical imaging technique uses ultrasound to assess blood flow in the major arteries and veins within the brain. The ultrasound waves, in this test, give your doctor information regarding the speed and direction of blood flow in your body.

Doctors use this to monitor conditions like stroke, vasospasm after subarachnoid hemorrhage, and certain neurological disorders. In addition, doctors use this technique to evaluate the condition of blood vessels in the brain without requiring invasive procedures.

Diagnostics & Amenities

At Aster, we provide the best services so that a heart attack can be diagnosed at the earliest and the best form of treatment can be provided to the patient. Healthcare professionals usually diagnose a heart attack by the symptoms, as well as by physical examination, which includes checking pulse rate, blood oxygen levels, and blood pressure. One or more of the following methods are generally used for diagnosis:

  • The healthcare provider assesses the medical history of the patient and checks for the symptoms they are experiencing.

  • Blood tests may be required to confirm the diagnosis. At the time of a heart attack, the heart muscle cells are damaged, leading to the release of a chemical marker, a cardiac troponin, in the bloodstream. 

  • Electrocardiogram is one of the first tests that is recommended for anyone who complains of chest pain.

  • Echocardiogram generates a picture of the inside and outside of the heart, which helps get an idea about blood flow through the heart.

  • Angiograms show the areas that have little or no blood flow.

  • Computed tomography (CT) scan shows a detailed scan of the heart.

  • Heart MRI uses powerful magnetic field and a computer to create an image of the heart

  • Nuclear heart scans are very similar to angiography. In this, a radioactive dye is injected into the blood. Then computer-enhanced methods like computed tomography and positron emission tomography scans are used to visualize the heart.

Heart attack is a medical emergency that needs to be treated urgently. The treatment usually involves restoring blood flow to the affected heart muscle as soon as possible. This can be done by various methods, like taking medications and surgery. Some of the most common methods of treatment that are useful are:

Supplementary oxygen

Supplementary oxygen is usually given to people who have trouble breathing or have low blood oxygen levels. One may use a cannula or a face mask to breathe. This increases the amount of oxygen that circulates in the blood and reduces the strain on the heart.

Medications 

Anti-clotting medications like aspirin are usually prescribed. Medications like nitroglycerin usually provide relief from chest pain and dilate the blood vessels so that blood can pass through it easily. Thrombolytic agents are usually given within 12 hours after having a heart attack. Heart attacks often cause disturbance in the normal rhythms of the heart. This can be a life-threatening condition that needs urgent attention. Finally, medicines to alleviate pain are given.

Percutaneous coronary interventions

Percutaneous coronary interventions make use of a catheter placed inside the blood vessel, usually through a vessel in the upper thigh or wrist. This procedure helps restore blood flow and improve the overall outcome of the patient. Most hospitals measure their ability to deal with emergencies like heart attack with a parameter called “door-to balloon time.” This is the average it takes for a patient who wants to undergo this procedure to reach the hospital and get it. 

Coronary artery bypass grafting

Procedures like coronary artery bypass surgery are reserved for patients who have severe blockage in the coronary arteries. This surgery involves taking a blood vessel from any part of the body and making an alternative pathway for the blood
