What does cardiology care involve?
Vantage Medical Associates PC offers several tests and treatments targeted toward heart disease diagnosis and management. Cardiac testing and treatment include:
ECG records your heart’s electrical impulses as it pumps blood. You can get one while at rest or while exercising. A Holter monitor is a portable ECG that records information continuously for 24 hours while you’re away from the office.
An echo test produces an image of your heart’s structure using sound waves and shows it pumping blood in real-time.
Radiofrequency ablation creates scar tissue in the heart, which can block abnormal electrical impulses to treat arrhythmia.
Medication and lifestyle management
Medications and lifestyle changes, like dietary guidelines, will likely be key parts of your heart disease treatment plan.
