Cryotherapy, also called cryosurgery, cryoablation or targeted cryoablation therapy, is a minimally invasive treatment that uses extreme cold to freeze and destroy diseased tissue, including cancer cells. Although cryotherapy and cryoablation can be used interchangeably, the term “cryosurgery” is reserved best for cryotherapy performed using an open, surgical approach. During cryotherapy, liquid nitrogen or argon gas is applied to diseased cells located outside or inside the body.
An EKG is an important part of the initial evaluation of a patient who is suspected to have a heart related problem. Small sticky electrodes are applied to the patient’s chest, arms and legs. However, with some systems, the electrodes may be applied to the chest, shoulders and the sides of the lower chest, or hips. Wires are used to connect the patient to an EKG machine. You will be asked to remain very still while a nurse or technician records the EKG. The electrical activity created by the patient’s heart is processed by the EKG machine and then printed on a special graph paper. This is then interpreted by your physician. It takes a few minutes to apply the EKG electrodes, and one minute to make the actual recording.
Most methods of testing or monitoring blood glucose require a blood sample, usually obtained by using an automatic lancing device on a finger. The drop of blood is placed on the end of a specially coated strip, called a testing strip. The strip has a chemical on it that makes it change color according to how much glucose is in the blood.
Hemoglobin A1c Test
According to the National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP), this test shows the average amount of sugar in your blood over the last 2-3 months. It is a simple lab test done by your health care provider. NDEP calls it the best test to find out if your blood sugar is under control and says diabetics should have a hemoglobin A1c test at least twice a year. The American Diabetes Association recommends an A1c target of less than 7 percent for optimal blood sugar control.
Rapid Stress Test
The Rapid Strep Test (RST), or rapid antigen detection test (RADT), is an in-office test done by a clinician in order to determine whether or not a patient has streptococcal pharyngitis (colloquially called "strep throat" in American English), which is a group A streptococcal infection of the pharynx and possibly other parts of the body. The Rapid Strep Test is one of the most common tests for streptococcal pharyngitis.
You should see your doctor regularly for preventive health care. This can help find problems early or prevent health problems before they occur. Preventive health care includes exams and screening tests that look for problems even before you are sick. It also includes immunizations, which help to prevent some diseases.
