If you live far away and find it difficult to travel to our clinic for a consultation, worry no more. Canberra Heart Clinic now conducts telemedical consultations. Leave it with us to coordinate with your Gp for a Skype session. We strive to accommodate to all patients, near and far. The first consultations have been very successful and have saved our patients many hours of travelling. If you are interested in having a telemedical consulation with our cardiologist, do contact our friendly staff for further details.
With the purchase of two 7 day event monitors, the Canberra Heart Clinic can now do cardiac monitor from 1 day up to 7 days. Since the clinic has 10 monitors, appointments 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 cardiologist unlike those provided in pathology which may be read by cardiologists located outside of Canberra. These cardiologists may 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.
The Canberra Heart Clinic is pleased to announce that it has purchased 3 brand new echocardiographic machines. We have 2 brand new General Electric E95 machines and with this, we now have the most sophisticated echocardiographic machines in the region. Both machines are capable of complex valve assessment as well as tissue strain analysis. This provides an earlier diagnosis of potential left ventricular dysfunction. These machines also comes with the functionality of a 3D probe which allows for a detailed assesment of valvular dysfunction and a more accurate assessment of regional wall defects in exercise stress echocardiography. In addition, we also have a brand new GE Vivid iq portable echocardiographic machine which is the best in its class and allows for an accurate assessment of cardiac structural abnormalities in the private hospital setting as well as assisting in the management of complex cardiac conditions in surrounding towns.
We are excited to announce that Canberra Heart Clinic is currently undergoing a complete makeover! Our vision is to bring cardiology services to a whole new level with sophisticated and state of the art technology. With our new and improved look, we endeavour to provide our patients with the best quality care and service in a quintessentially beautiful environment. These renovations are expected to be completed by May 2018.
In the meantime, we are operating from Suite 11/12 Napier Close, Lidia Perin Medical Centre, Deakin 2600. These temporary rooms are located on the ground floor, down the hallway from our current premises.
