Early diagnosis of cardiac and respiratory diseases can help you manage the damage and reduce the risk of having a heart attack. Gateway healthcare provides state-of-art cardiopulmonary services with accurate and reliable results.
Our cardiopulmonary services include:
ABI (Ankle-Brachial) Index
The ankle-brachial index test is a fast and noninvasive procedure your doctor may advise if he wants to check for peripheral artery disease (PAD). This condition occurs when narrowed arteries decrease the blood flow to your limbs. PAD can cause leg pain when you walk and increase the risk of heart attack and stroke.
The ankle-brachial index test compares the blood pressure calculated at your ankle with the blood pressure calculated at your arm. If you have a low ankle-brachial index number, it indicates narrowing or blockage of the arteries in your legs.
Gateway healthcare offers stress testing with the most advanced equipment for diagnosing cardiovascular disorders. Also known as an exercise test or treadmill test, this test allows you to know how your heart works during physical movements.
In this test, you are asked to walk on a treadmill or run a stationary cycle, and at the same time, medical devices monitor your breathing, blood pressure, heart rate, and heart rhythm.
