Outpatient ECG Acquisition and Reporting
ECG Acquisition and Reporting
The medicine service offers an ECG Acquisition and Reporting Service for primary care veterinarians who do not have access to this modality in their practice. This service is intended to assist veterinarians with the workup of dogs or cats with suspected cardiac disease or an arrhythmia by providing access to the benefits of an ECG, while simultaneously allowing practitioners to manage their own cases independently.
Investigation of Arrhythmias
There is no medicine consultation involved in this service or advice on treatment provided. Cases requiring consultation to discuss the disease process or that require prior stabilisation should be referred according to normal procedures.
This is not a suitable service for patients that are suspected of having a significant arrhythmia and are experiencing severe clinical signs associated with this. Referral for a full consultation is indicated in these instances as some form of urgent treatment may be required.
The medicine service also offers an ECG Reporting Service if acquisition has already been performed previously.
An ECG trace is obtained by a veterinary nurse in a quiet consultation room after a short rest period in the room, usually with the owner still present following which the patient is discharged. A copy of a segment of the ECG trace along with ECG measurements and interpretation of the ECG findings will then be sent directly to the patient’s primary care veterinarian in a written report within one working day.
