Cardiac Physiology Service
The non-invasive Cardiology Department is managed by a team of highly skilled technicians/physiologists and provides a comprehensive range of diagnostic services including Electrocardiography (ECG), Exercise Testing, Echocardiography (ultrasound of the heart), and ECG monitoring.
We investigate patients for possible cardiac conditions and monitor patients with ongoing cardiac conditions.
We also host pacemaker and defibrillator follow up clinics at the Dorset County Hospital. These clinics provide regular checks for patients with these devices to ensure their correct functioning with battery checks and problem solving when required.
The physiologists work closely with the outpatient and inpatient services and patients may have a number of tests done to form part of their assessment or clinic review.
For all ECG, ECG monitoring, exercise testing, pacemaker/devices clinics and echocardiography enquiries at DCH please contact the Cardiology Department on 01305 251150.
