Cardiac Exams

Get state-of-the-art cardiac exams at North Shore Medical Center.

Cardiac exams are critical for diagnosing cardiac conditions. State-of-the-art cardiac exams are available at the top-rated NSMC Heart Center at North Shore Medical Center.

Our comprehensive range of cardiac evaluation services includes:

  • Stress tests--cardiac exams that measure the reaction of the heart to an increase in demand for oxygen.
  • Cardiac ultrasound exams--these identify the size and functional level of the heart muscle and valves.
  • Tilt table exams--these help identify why a patient may be experiencing fainting spells by enabling the patient to faint under controlled conditions.
  • Holter monitors and event monitors– testing devices that determine whether a patient's heart is experiencing irregular rhythms.

By administering these advanced cardiac exams, NSMC cardiologists and cardiac surgeons get a detailed profile of the heart's function. All cardiac exams are administrated by physicians and clinically trained technicians at our cardiac facilities in Salem and Danvers.
