Exercise Stress Test

In some cases, cardiovascular symptoms do not appear while resting. In such cases, the exercise stress test is needed to identify the existing abnormality and evaluate the severity of it. The Cardiology Center of Erfan Hospital having the equipment needed for performing the test and working in accordance with medical standards is ready to provide services to patients.

In the exercise stress test, you can walk on a treadmill or cycle on a stationary cycle ergometer. The electrocardiography electrodes are attached to the patient and the electrocardiograms are taken before, during and after exercise. The exercise test is performed with the following purposes:

  • Diagnosis of coronary artery disease
  • Diagnosis of causes of chest pain
  • Evaluation of cardiac function after myocardial infarction or cardiac surgery
  • Evaluation of the effects of antianginal and antiarrhythmic drugs
  • Diagnosis of cardiac dysrhythmias during activity
  • Setting specific goals for designing a proper physical training program

 

Holter Monitoring

One of the services of the Cardiology Center of Erfan Hospital, is its dynamic electrocardiogram or Holter Monitoring with highly advanced equipment. Holter monitoring is a diagnostic method used for examining the cardiac function and diagnosis of any arrhythmia in a long term period (24 to 48 hours). The electrocardiogram can only record a patient's instantaneous heart condition while some arrhythmias occur during daily work. Holter monitoring allows the physician to track the patient's cardiac function in a given time period. This method is used for the following purposes:

  • Diagnosis of various types of acute arrhythmia, atrial flutter and paroxysmal dysrhythmia
  • Evaluating the causes of chest pain
  • Evaluation of cardiac function after heart attack, heart surgery and pacemaker placement
  • Evaluation of the effects of specific drugs
  • Diagnosis of the causes of respiratory problems, dizziness, distraction and weakness


Spirometry

Spirometry is a pulmonary function test used to measure lung volume and capacities including residual volume, inspiratory reserve volume (IRV), Expiratory reserve volume (ERV), total lung capacity and vital capacity. In Erfan Hospital this test is performed by employing the advanced and modern equipment. Spirometry is used in the following cases:

  • Assessment of pulmonary dysfunction based on the history of the patient, physical examination and paraclinical evaluations
  • Assessment of the severity of pulmonary dysfunction
  • Assessment of the lung function changes over time and during treatment
  • Assessing the effects of occupational or environmental exposures on the lung function
  • Preoperative pulmonary risk assessment
  • Evaluation of pulmonary dysfunction and lung disability
  • Assessment of the respiratory status for weaning the patient from the mechanical ventilation
