Our qualified, experienced dietitian provides individualized diet plan for the patients and other many essential information regarding diet, cooking, calorie counting, exchange diets, differentiation of fats/carbohydrates/proteins, etc.

We analyze your diet in terms of fat, proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. The results provide a scientific basis for making changes in eating habits for weight loss, lowering blood cholesterol, blood pressure, and controlling diabetes. A balance – sheet of calorie intake and calorie expenditure by way of daily activities gives the patient a clear understanding of weight losing mechanism.

PSYCHOLOGICAL ANALYSIS /COUNSELLING / YOGA :

Anxiety, fear, loss of confidence, depression, denial, etc. are very common in patients suffering from heart disease and they adversely affect the long term outcome of the disease resulting in treatment failures and increase the overall morbidity and mortality. Our psychologist and yoga experts help the patients to cope with their stress and psychological problems more effectively and significantly improve the treatment outcomes.


CARDIAC DIAGNOSTIC FACILITIES


COMPUTERISED STRESS TEST :

Doctors usually recommend exercise ECG test to heart patients to determine the severity of their problem and also before starting an exercise program. We conduct this stress tests and make its results available to the doctors. The results are used to design an exercise prescription appropriate to the patient's exercise capacity for an effective yet safe exercise program

HOLTER MONITOR – 24 HOUR AMBULATORY ECG MONITORING :

In this test a recorder (like a walkman) is applied to chest with ECG Electrodes. While the patient is doing his routine activities, this monitor continuously keeps on recording and analyzing the ECG and whatever abnormality occurs, is reported in the 24 - hours computerized ECG report. With this test ECG changes during chest pain episodes, episodes of silent ischemia and rhythm disturbances can be recorded and can be co-related with patient's symptoms.

24-HOUR AMBULATORY BLOOD PRESSURE MONITORING :

Many patients become tense when they visit doctor's office and their blood pressure increases significantly. Also many patients have fluctuating blood pressure levels during different times of the day. The response of blood pressure control to the medicines also varies from person to person. Due to all these reasons, it is important to know the trend of blood pressure levels through out the 24 hours day. This helps in selecting the right kind of medicine and the right dosage of medicine with minimum side effect and this helps in maintaining smooth and effective control of blood pressure through out the day.

24-HOUR AMBULATORY BLOOD PRESSURE MONITORING is therefore a very useful test.

COMPUTERISED LUNG FUNCTION TEST :

Our Computerized lung function test will assess your lung function capacity with the help of latest software developed by reputed Schiller international medical instrument company. With increasing age and due to air pollution it is very likely that lung functions might deteriorate and it might contribute to your shortness of breath on exertion. Hence this test is important for your annual checkup.

BODY COMOSITION ANALYSIS :
