OUR HEART HEALTH TESTING

by Phillips Clinic on 02/25/22

Phillips Clinic is a team of professionals dedicated
to providing the very best in medical treatment
to ensure patient well-being. Our staff’s
commitment to continuing professional education
is evident as the Clinic strives to stay on the
cutting edge of new traditional and nontraditional
medical techniques and new practices
in the health care field.

Our professional staff is proud to offer the following
comprehensive heart health testing
services at one convenient location:
EKG
An EKG is a test that records the electrical
activity of your heart through
small electrode patches that are
attached to the skin of your chest,
arms, and legs.
EKGs are quick, safe, and painless.
With this test, your doctor will be able
to:
  •  Check your heart rhythm
  • See if you have poor blood flow to your heart muscle (this is called ischemia)
  • Diagnose a heart attack
  • Check on things that are abnormal, such as thickened heart muscle.
ECHOCARDIOGRAM
An echocardiogram (echo=sound +
card=heart + gram=drawing) is an
ultrasound test that can evaluate
the structures of the heart, as well
as the direction of blood flow within
it. Technicians specially trained in
echocardiography produce the images
and videos, often using a special
probe or transducer that is
placed in various places on the
chest wall, to view the heart from
different directions. Cardiologists,
or heart specialists, are trained to
evaluate these images to assess
heart function and provide a report
of the results. The echocardiogram
is one of the many tests that can be
done to evaluate heart anatomy
and function.
PERIPHERAL
VASCULAR TESTING
These are non invasive tests that check the
blood flow in your arteries and veins.
Vascular studies use high-frequency
sound waves (ultrasound) to measure
the amount of blood flow in your
blood vessels. Treadmill tests are
also done at Phillips Clinic Family
Practice & Anti-Aging.
