Paolo Heart Center offers diagnosis, treatment and recuperation services for heart patients. All these are performed by an experienced team of cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, nurses and medical staff specialized in providing high quality, comprehensive treatment for the patients.
Advance technology for accurate diagnosis.
Paolo hospital uses a wide variety of technologies and tools in the diagnostic process in order to plan the appropriate treatment in a timely manner that result in the best opportunity for a positive health outcome.
• Exercise Stress Test
This test examines heart performance during exercise under the supervision of expert medical staff. The unit continuously display electrical current waves of the heart and pulse rate when the heart beats faster than normal during exercise. This method of examination is able to detect heart beat irregularities and coronary artery disease.
Echocardiography is the process of sending non-hazardous high-frequency sound waves to various heart muscles in order to examine the performance of the cardiac valves, walls and muscles. Echocardiography is very useful for diagnosing cardiac disease, coronary artery disease and risks of heart failure.
• 24 hours Holter Monitor
The Holter Monitor examines heart rate and is suitable for patients suffering from intermittent irregular palpitation, when no symptoms are displayed during a visit to the doctor. The doctor attaches the equipment in order to record heart rate. Patient may perform their daily work as usual and return to the doctor after 24 hours to remove the apparatus and to get the reading.
• Cardiac Catheterization (CAG)
CAG is one of the most effective methods available today for examining coronary arteries. This procedure assists artery disease more accurately in order to facilitate appropriate further treatments.
Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA)
PTCA is a coronary artery disease treatment which does not require surgery. It is performed subsequent to the CAG technique. The treatment involves using a balloon to inflate the arteries so that blood can be supplied to the heart as normal. After the inflation of the arteries, a stent is inserted to prevent future blockage in blood vessels.
Bypass Surgery / Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG)
CABG is performed to relieve angina and reduce the risk of death for coronary artery disease. The bypass is done by using arteries or veins from elsewhere of patient’s body to construct new routes which improve the blood supply to the heart.
