We perform in-house exercise stress ECG testing and 24 hour Holter ECG recording
Exercise stress ECG testing is carried out in accordance with the Bruce protocol using a treadmill. Appointments available Monday, Tuesday and Friday (sometimes on Wednesday and Thursday) during normal office hours. Exercise ECGs can be reported if required by our consultant cardiologist.
24 hour Holter ECGs are carried out Monday – Thursday, normally as a result of a CAA requirement. The report is available by close of business the following day, and is normally then sent by email to CAA Medical Dept, our cardiologist, the pilot’s AME, and the pilot, as required in the individual case.
Echocardiography is carried out next door at the Spire Gatwick Park Hospital, we will complete the referral request form, send it to the hospital imaging department, they will contact the pilot to book an appointment.
We will write the referral letter to the cardiologist if required, eg in the case of pilots requiring over-65 4-yearly cardiology review and exercise ECG, or annual cardiology review and exercise ECG in the case of pilots over 40 with diabetes, or for any other reason, eg resting ECG anomalies, history of coronary artery disease, post-ablation etc.
