Ultra Sonography : General assessment of the abdomen and pelvis with particular attention to the detection of Gall stones, kidney stones and prostate gland (in males).
Stress Test (Computerized Treadmill Test) : Measures the heart’s ability to respond to external stress in a controlled clinical environment. Compare the coronary circulation while the patient is at rest with the same patient’s circulation observed during maximum physical exertion, showing any abnormal blood flow to the heart’s muscle.
Audiometry : Pure tone audiometry used for measuring hearing acuity for variations in sound intensity and pitch and for tonal purity, involving thresholds and differing frequencies.
Spirometry (Lung Function Test) : Specific test for assessment of the amount (volume) and/or speed (flow) of air that can be inhaled and exhaled. Report with all values and graphs, including FEV1 & FVC.
Vaccination : Vaccination protects from serious illness and complications of vaccine-preventable diseases which can include amputation of an arm or leg, paralysis of limbs, hearing loss, convulsions, brain damage, and death.
ECG/EKG : To record the electrical activity of the heart so that it can identify disorders of the cardiac rate and rhythm. This data is extremely useful to detect abnormalities of the heart like myocardial infarction & helpful due to the presence of the generalized conditions / disorders those affect the rest of the body too like electrolyte disturbances. .
2D Echo : Non-invasive screening of the heart for size and shape of the heart (internal chamber size quantification), pumping capacity, and the location and extent of any tissue damage. Also estimates heart function such as a calculation of the cardiac output, ejection fraction, and diastolic function (how well the heart relaxes).
