What is a cardiac test?

A cardiac test is a test to check heart health status. Cardiac tests are used to assess how healthy your heart is as well as identify any abnormalities in blood flow, heart anatomy, or cardiovascular changes. These cardiology tests can serve as diagnostic tests to confirm the presence of heart disease. They can also be utilized as cardiac screening tests for early signs or specific risk factors that increase your chances of developing heart disease.

When should you get a cardiac test?

Cardiac tests, performed during a cardiovascular exam or a heart check up, are usually requested for patients who experience symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest pain, and heart palpitations. But cardiac testing is also performed during annual physical exams, sport physicals, and are recommended for people with certain risk factors:

  • Obesity
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Family history of heart disease

At My Concierge MD, the best Los Angeles physicians perform the following cardiac tests:

  • Electrocardiogram (EKG test) – this is a painless test used to diagnose heart attacks and abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias)
  • Echocardiogram (heart echo test) – this is a heart scan used to visualize the structure of the heart using ultrasound waves
  • Cardiac stress test (treadmill stress test) – this heart stress test helps the doctor check if blood flow to the heart is normal or not
  • Cardio-pulmonary stress test (lung and heart exam) – this is a different type of treadmill test which is used to check the function of both your heart and lungs
  • Laboratory blood tests – this is a simple blood test to check the levels of glucose, cholesterol, and other cardiac markers in your blood
