Blood Test and ECG Services
Truly Exceptional Results
The electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) is a diagnostic tool that is routinely used to assess the electrical and muscular functions of the heart. While it is a relatively simple test to perform, the interpretation of the ECG tracing requires significant amounts of training. Numerous textbooks are devoted to the subject.
The heart is a two stage electrical pump and the heart's electrical activity can be measured by electrodes placed on the skin. The electrocardiogram can measure the rate and rhythm of the heartbeat, as well as provide indirect evidence of blood flow to the heart muscle
The Difference You’re Looking For
A blood test is a laboratory analysis performed on ablood sample that is usually extracted from a vein in the arm using a hypodermic needle, or via fingerprick. ... Typical clinical blood panels include a basic metabolic panel or a complete blood count. Blood tests are also used in drug tests to detect drug abuse.
FHP FEMALE HORMONE PROFILE(SCOTIA)
Research shows that fluctuating levels of estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone play a key role in shaping the course of a woman’s menstrual cycle, affecting changes in mood, sleep patterns, appetite, sexual drive and PMS symptoms.1-4 As clinicians and their patients become increasingly aware of the role that these hormones play in health, they are choosing more reliable, clinically relevant assessments of hormone function. The Female Hormone Profile analyzes levels of progesterone, testosterone and ß-estradiol over 28 days using 11 saliva samples. This profile provides clinical direction for successful treatment of individuals with menstrual irregularities, difficulties with ovulation, functional infertility, premenstrual syndrome, perimenopausal symptoms, osteoporosis, and other hormone-related disorders. The test report includes numeric values of ß-estradiol and progesterone for all 11 samples, as well as a graphic representation of ß-estradiol and progesterone activity. Reference ranges are based on non-supplementing women. Transdermal and other forms of hormone replacement may cause significant elevations in salivary hormone levels. This assessment is thus recommended only as a baseline analysis in non-supplementing women. A progesterone-to-estradiol ratio analysis is also included, along with a report of the salivary testosterone level. All data is beautifully presented and clearly interpreted, to help you readily identify any abnormal patterns and devise an effective, customized treatment plan to support your patient’s natural hormonal rhythms
