Lab Testing and Monitoring

After consulting with your providers, you may be a candidate for treatments to improve your heart functioning. Some tests and treatment options include:

  • Cardiac catheterization (cath) – a procedure when a slender tube (catheter) is inserted and guided through the arteries into the heart, and a dye is injected and observed as it flows through the arteries, allowing cardiologists to see the amount of flow that is allowed within the arteries
  • Stress testing – a test to see the effect of exercise on the heart where the electrical activity of the heart is measured
  • Echocardiograms – a test that uses sound waves to create a moving picture of the heart
  • Coronary stenting – when a wire mesh tube (stent) is placed in the artery to help keep an artery open
  • Pacemakers – technology implanted that helps the pumping chamber of the heart work more efficiently
  • Electrophysiology tests (EP studies) – a study that is recommended if an irregular heartbeat, or arrhythmia, is detected to determine the cause of the abnormal rhythm
