Book An Appointment

One of the predominant health concerns in the country is heart disease, affecting approximately 2.5% of the population. At Apollo Clinic Barrackpore, our ongoing commitment is to deliver a wide range of exceptional cardiology services to address this significant health challenge.

What is Cardiology?

Cardiology involves the study and treatment of a range of disorders pertaining to the heart. It is an extensive medical specialty dedicated to the well-being and management of all aspects related to the heart and arteries. This field encompasses the diagnosis, treatment, exploration of symptoms, causes, and research into various heart diseases and injuries.

What is the first step?

The initial step involves understanding the causes and recognizing the signs and symptoms of the disease.

Heart diseases or heart attacks can be triggered by pre-existing conditions such as high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, diabetes, stress, and lifestyle habits like smoking, as well as excessive consumption of alcohol or caffeine. Additionally, certain over-the-counter (OTC) and dietary supplements may contribute to the development of heart disease.

Symptoms vary depending on the type of heart disease, but common indicators include shortness of breath, back pain, chest discomfort, nausea, indigestion, heartburn or stomach pain, dizziness, and jaw pain. Light-headedness may also be experienced.

Given that heart diseases are often life-threatening, it is crucial to seek immediate medical attention if you observe any of the aforementioned symptoms or experience discomfort in your chest or arm. Visiting a cardiology clinic at the earliest is strongly recommended.

Services offered under Cardiology at Apollo Clinic Barrackpore:

At Apollo Clinic Barrackpore Cardiology Department, we provide ongoing evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment for cardiac issues. We are firm believers of ‘prevention is better than cure’ and strongly emphasize on preventive care. We provide several preventive screening tests to check heart health including:

  • Treadmill Test (TMT): A TMT or cardiac stress test helps your doctor assess how your heart responds when it is pushed. You will have to walk on a treadmill for 7-12 minutes, and the difficulty level is gradually increased. Throughout, your ECG, blood pressure, and heart rate are monitored.
  • Electrocardiogram (ECG): An ECG is a test that examines the natural electrical system of the heart. Electrodes are attached to your body and linked to an ECG machine. The machine traces your heart’s activity as lines on paper.

Depending on the symptoms, and family and personal history, other diagnostic tests such as 2D echo tests and blood tests may also be conducted.
