Mayo Clinic preview

November 23, 2011

Talked to one of Dr. Ackerman’s assistants today. Starting December 13th I will be live blogging (to the best of my abilities at least since I’m still fairly certain cell phones aren’t allowed around most of the equipment).
Now, what tests will I be going through? So far the following has been scheduled:

CT Scan
EKGs focusing on looking for Brugada Syndrome and Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy
24 hour halter monitor
stress Echocardiogram
chest x-ray
treadmill stress test

It feels like we’re backtracking a bit but since we’ve yet to get diagnosed, it would be silly to not do tests I haven’t had done since I was 13.
i was actually more surprised that they didn’t put in an order for a Tilt Test but more tests can be ordered if they see a reason for it.

Now, on to planning how one films these tests.
