B.     Examination tools:

?Digitalized electrocardiography (ECG): provide resting 12-leads ECG.

?Holter : for the diagnosis of arrhythmia, ischemia and autonomic nervous function

?Event Recorder : for arrhythmia detection

?Ambularoty BP monitor (ABPM): records BP continuously; diagnosis of hypertension, white coat hypertension; analyzing BP change during daytime and esp. nighttime and evaluating treatment efficacy of anti-hypertensive medication.

?Treadmill exercise electrocardiography: Diagnosis of myocardial ischemia during exercise, coronary artery disease, arrhythmia related to exercise and exercise capacity

?Echocardiography with color duplex: Analyzing cardiac chamber size, wall thickness and heart systolic/diastolic function; differential diagnosis of vavular heart disease, pericardial disease, cardiomyopathy and congenital heart disease.

?Bi-plane cardiac catheterization Lab.: Newest bi-plane high resolution cardiac catheterization Lab. provides easy anatomic analysis of coronary arteries during coronary angiogram and percutaneous coronary intervention, and performs pacemaker implantation.

?Electrophysological Study: arrhythmia diagnosis and treatment rovides easy anatomic analysis of coronary arteries during coronary angiogram and percutaneous coronary intervention, and performs pacemaker implantation.

?Vascular screening system: analyze the degree of atherosclerosis and arteriosclerosis as part of screening tool; diagnosis the degree of peripheral arterial occlusive disease
