Celebrate Cardiology Equipment: Saving Lives Daily

In the past decade, the market for cardiology equipment has grown tremendously. Physicians have increased their skills in performing intervention and preventative procedures, saving more lives each year.

However, the American Heart Association reports that in 2007 over 450,000 victims died from a coronary attack. Coronary heart disease (CAD) is the nation's single leading cause of death, despite the advances in technology. In addition, data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 1999-2004 shows that high blood pressure is estimated to effect over 72 million people. Fortunately, high blood pressure is easily detectable and can be controlled with proper treatment. Cardiologists everywhere are aware of these findings and make it their mission every day to treat and prevent cardiac issues that claim so many lives.

GE Stress Test Systems Can Save Your Life

Staying fit is one of the key factors in having a healthy life. One way to keep your heart healthy is by having a doctor conduct regular stress tests. Stress tests, also called exercise or treadmill tests, help doctors distinguish what levels of exercise are appropriate for a patient, as well as how well his or her heart works. During this test, physicians will monitor heart rate, breathing, electrocardiogram, blood pressure, and fatigue. This type of exam, most importantly, can help diagnose more severe conditions like coronary artery disease. Moreover, physicians are able to predict the risk of heart attack or detect abnormal heart rhythms.

Stress Test Systems
The National Heart Lung and Blood Institute recommends anyone diagnosed with coronary artery disease or who recently suffered a heart attack receive stress testing prior to beginning any exercise programs. Testing will also show whether or not treatments designed to improve the heart’s function are working properly.

Cardiologists should look to update their stress testing systems as to give the optimum in patient care and diagnostics. Imagine trusted stress testing systems that assist clinical decision-making, seamlessly retrieve information, and accommodate your unique practice.
