The Equipments We Use
ANDURUSE 594XL GE
To obtain the clear, reliable data which is needed to make informed diagnosis.
An electrocardiogram (ECG) is one of the simplest and fastest procedures used to evaluate the heart. Electrodes (small, plastic patches) are placed at certain locations on the chest, arms, or legs. When the electrodes are connected to an ECG machine by lead wires, a graphic representation, or tracing, of the electrical activity can be obtained. This electrical activity is measured, interpreted, and printed out for the doctor’s information and further interpretation.
ECG usually takes five to ten minutes to complete and is a safe procedure with no known risks. It’s completely painless and non-invasive, as the skin is in no way penetrated and no electric current is sent to the body. On occasion the patient may be allergic or sensitive to the electrodes causing local skin reddening.
One of the most popular machines that is used for our ECG test in Kolkata is-
MAC 2000- GE/MAC –GE
The 12-channel electrocardiograph MAC 2000 resting ECG system helps in making fast and accurate diagnosis, with the power of the Marquette* 12SL analysis program.
Echocardiography with Color Doppler
Echocardiogram is a specific type of ultrasound test which uses penetrating sound waves transmitted through a device called the transducer. The device collects the sound wave echoes as they reverberate from the different body parts. These echoes are then used for producing moving images of your heart which can be viewed on a video screen.
A doppler echocardiogram is to see how blood flows through the different heart chambers, valves and blood vessels. The echoes are reflected to the transducer through the movement of blood in the body. This helps in knowing the speed and direction of blood flowing through the heart and the different blood vessels.
Our echocardiography test in Kolkata is sure to give you accurate results. The technician will apply a colorless gel to your chest. The transducer will be moved back and forth across your chest to obtain several views of your heart. You may be asked to move from your back and to the side. Instructions may also be given for you to breathe slowly or to hold your breath. This helps in obtaining higher quality pictures.

A technician will place the electrodes that sense your heartbeat on your chest. For men, a small amount of hair may be shaved to ensure the electrodes stick. The technician will then connect the electrodes to a recording device with several wires. It is advisable to wear a loose fitting shirt with a higher neckline so that the electrodes can be covered.
Holterheart monitor test is painless and there are no significant risks associated. Patients with sensitive skin may experience skin redness or irritation. It is not possible to receive an electrical shock from the device.
