Providing proper treatment for each person.

Breathlessness
Breathlessness

Shortness of breath can be an incapacitating symptom that requires diagnostic tests, including blood samples, chest X-ray, ECG and echo (ultrasound scan of the heart) to find out the cause. The problem can be simple deconditioning, natural ageing or unhealthy weight but also several cardiac conditions, such as heart failure, coronary artery disease or a heart rhythm problem.

Chest pain
Chest pain

There are many non-cardiac causes, but it is crucial to detect angina, a type of chest pain caused by narrowings in coronary arteries. Patients with chest pain may need tests including treadmill, stress echo, CT coronary angiogram or invasive angiogram. If ischaemic heart disease is confirmed, treatment consists of medication and, if appropriate, a revascularization with PCI or CABG.

Prevention
Prevention

'Heart MOT', a full heart health check with a review of your medical history, physical examination, ECG and further tests as needed based on your individual risk profile. An in-depth discussion about your cardiovascular risk factors and the formulation of a management plan. Reassurance if everything is OK, early treatment and prevention of later complications if not.

Palpitations
Palpitations

Palpitations can be very unpleasant, but they are usually benign, sometimes exacerbated by stress and anxiety. However, it is important to rule out a heart rhythm problem that may have significant consequences and require treatment with medication, devices, and/or catheter ablation. If needed, an ECG monitor, echo or other tests can be arranged at the Alexandra Hospital or on the NHS.
