Hi all
I am having a transthoracic echocardiogram ( bit of a mouth full ) this thursday.little nervous as I don't know what it's for

I have been slightly breathless these last few days. With enough wind to fly a kite . I think its more anxiety than anything else as I do tend to swallow more air when I am nervous. I do believe that an over active mind can be a trigger for all sorts of ailments . when I was rehearsing with my band for two hours my breathing wasn't an issue. Yet on the way home my concentration was bought back to my breathing strange indeed? sorry about the picture pressed the wrong one ha ha this was me trying to impress my granddaughter

  • Hi llamudos -- nothing to worry about here . I have had several of these over the years. This is similar to the ultrasound scan used in pregnancy . It enables the cardiologist to see the workings of the heart in detail & is completely painless. It can give accurate information about the pumping action of the heart & about the structure of the heart & its valves.

  • Thank you yatsura . Yes it was painless . I did ask if it was a boy of girl( but think they have heard that one before) cheers
