  • Chest X-ray – examines heart, lungs and chest walls
     
  • Cholesterol and other blood lipids tests
     
  • Coronary angiography (also known as cardiac catheterisation) – gives information about the blood pressure inside your heart and how well its pumping chambers and valves are working
     
  • Coronary angioplasty/coronary stenting (also known as percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)) – uses a small balloon to ‘squash’ the fatty tissue in the narrowed artery, allowing blood to flow more easily
     
  • Electrophysiological studies/testing – helps diagnose abnormal heart rhythms and identify which area of the heart is affected
     
  • Implantable loop recorders – records your heart rhythm continuously for up to 14 months
     
  • Implantable pacemakers – controls the heart’s rhythm when it beats too slowly
     
  • Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) – a pacemaker to treat different types of rhythm disturbances
