1) What is Cardiovascular Cartography?
| ||• This is a new technique for the early detection of Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) |
• The information obtained by cartography is not provided by the existing cardiac diagnostic tools
• Some of the information was never possible, non-invasively, earlier
• CAD is a progressive silent killer and if left undetected at its early stage leads to ANGINA PECTORIS [Chest Pain], MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION [Heart Attack], SUDDEN DEATH
2) Who requires Cartography?
| ||• Anyone above 30 years of age with stressful lifestyle |
• Family history of CAD
• Suffering from hypertension, diabetes, obesity
• High lipid (fat) profile of blood
• Undergone PTCA/Stenting/CABG procedure, Pacemaker, etc.
• Those who have had heart attacks and undergoing treatment
3) What are the Advantages of Cartography?
| ||• Non-Invasive procedure |
• No Pain, No Anesthesia, No Catheterization
• No "after effects"; No physical / mental stress
• Can be repeated any number of times, unlike invasive methods
• No hospitalization
• Provides 5 page colour report on the functioning and current status of the heart
• Indicates Myocardial (Heart Muscle) blood flow and oxygen demand and supply for every beat of your heart
• The report is fully evaluated by an experienced and specially trained cardiologist providing you with expert advise/comments
• Offers panoramic data of the heart for future monitoring/comparison for the treatment
• The entire package is cost effective
4) What should you do before coming for the test?
| ||• Should have been fasting for 6-12 hours |
• No drugs for a period of 12 hours
• no alcohol/smoking or tobacco for 12 hours
• No stimulants like coffee/tea/soft drinks for 12 hours
• No physical exercise/long walks 12 hours before test
• May take only little milks or water during fasting
• Empty the urinary bladder before procedure
| Studies on this technique in different parts of the world and "Mass Screening" has helped thousands of people to prevent heart attacks by this EARLY WARNING SYSTEM. |
