Online Desk: Are you forty? At present, heart disease or heart disease can settle in the human body from forty years or earlier. And if you are suffering from high blood pressure or hypertensive or suffering from diabetes or if any of your close relatives such as parents, siblings are suffering from heart disease or if you are used to taking addictive food,
For example, if you are used to taking tobacco, drinking alcohol and other drugs, you are at risk of heart disease at this age. In this case, you should have a heart checkup at least once a year.
As a result of this kind of checkup, if you have a heart problem, it will be detected at an early stage. As a result, you can avoid complications and live a healthy life by treating heart disease with caution and minimal treatment.
An idea of what tests are usually done to check up the heart can be given. However, an individual may not need all types of tests. If you are not suffering from any symptoms of heart disease or are in normal condition.
But for you ECG, echo-cardiogram, blood sugar and blood fat content (lipid profile) these tests will be considered sufficient. And if you are experiencing symptoms of heart disease such as chest tightness during exertion, palpitations, shortness of breath, chest pain or shortness of breath with little exertion and rest, all these symptoms will go away.
However, you will need another test called ETT or TMT along with the above mentioned test, but the ETT must be approved by a heart specialist. In addition to these, you may need to do Holter monitoring and CT angiogram as per the advice of the heart specialist and besides this, as per the advice of the doctor, uric acid, creatinine, thyroid hormone, liver function test may be required in the case of ultrasonogram. All the tests mentioned above are non-invasive or non-invasive and do not require hospitalization.
Tests like conventional angiograms and EP studies require hospitalization and are performed through invasive or non-operative procedures, so both tests carry some risk.
Sometimes there is a risk of death. Heart rate can be seen through ECG, heart rhythm can be understood, heart block problem can also be detected if it is clearly present. It can also be diagnosed if the heart rate is too low or too high. If someone is having a heart attack, it can be understood through ECG.
However, it should be remembered that if the ECG is normal or good, it cannot be said that your heart is healthy. If you have had a heart attack in the past, it may show up on an ECG. But it is not possible to say exactly when or how long ago it happened.
An echocardiogram provides an image of the heart and observes the heart’s movements, allowing measurements of different parts of the heart and detecting many types of anomalies by looking at the motion.
It also shows if there are any abnormal holes in the heart. The position of the heart valves can be determined and the direction of blood flow inside the heart can be determined.
ETT can be used to determine if there is any reduction or deficiency in blood supply to the heart.
