Upgrade of Medical Equipment
In June 2015 the Canberra Heart Clinic had a major upgrade of its medical equipment. This including a new GE Mach 5500 ECG machine, a new Philips ST80i Stress testing System and new Suntech Oscar 2 ambulatory 24 hour blood pressure monitor which is capable of assessing central blood pressure which more accurately correlates with true blood pressure. This investment ensures that patients at the Canberra Heart Clinic are not only managed by caring and highly skilled staff, but also that their investigations are performed with equipment that is the best in its class.
7 Days Holter Monitor
With the purchase of two 7 day event monitors the Canberra Heart Clinic can now do cardiac monitor from 1 day upto 7 days. The clinic has 10 monitors so monitors can generally be booked with no waiting time. It should also be remembered that Holter monitors at the Canberra Heart Clinic are read by its own local cardiologists unlike those provided in pathology which are read by cardiologists outside Canberra who do not have access to the referral letter or the patient's notes. Holter monitors provided by pathology providers also do not in general have an event button for the patient to press and do not have a clock on them which makes correlating patient symptoms with rhythm traces next to impossible. We therefore pride ourselves on the quality of our Holter monitor reports.
Referring doctors and patients whether they be new or prior patients of the Canberra Heart Clinic can now book their appointments via Appointuit. This will save time as you no longer have to wait on the phone to make you appointment. The Appointuit app is available via the App Store for iphone and ipads and is also available as an android app on Google Play for Android phones. Appointuit can also be accessed via your computer and is free of charge to use.
