Apart from Dr Kevin Ho's expertise in the treatment of various heart conditions, as a specialist cardiologist, he realises the importance of a preventative approach and provides executive medical assessments for his patients who are at higher risk of developing heart disease or patients who wish to be proactive about their health. Dr Ho provides comprehensive annual screening against heart disease by performing a clinical assessment including an electrocardiogram (ECG) or exercise stress test which can evaluate the electrical activity generated by the heart when it is at rest and when exercising and a cardiac echocardiogram (otherwise known as a cardiac ultrasound) which is an ultrasound of the heart to give a better image of the structure of the heart, including the chambers and valves. During these executive medical assessments, he may also assist in primary prevention strategies for a range of cardiac diseases and conditions.
assessment for those
In addition to preventative screening, Dr Ho also does cardiovascular assessments for those diagnosed with conditions such as peripheral vascular disease, or who have suffered a stroke or heart attack. During these cardiovascular assessments, Dr Ho will provide a comprehensive assessment of the heart using an electrocardiogram (ECG) or exercise stress test or a portable electrocardiogram (ECG) machine may also be used to monitor the heartbeat continuously over a period of time, this is called a Holter ECG monitor. A cardiac ultrasound (echocardiogram) may also be used to take an ultrasound of the heart's structure, while a transoesophageal echocardiogram may be required for select patients who require comprehensive structural evaluation.
