Preparing for Your Echocardiogram
Unless your doctor tells you otherwise, continue taking your medications as usual. If you have been instructed not to take your medications, tell the technician before the test. Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment and bring your doctor’s order. If you have a prosthetic heart valve, please bring the card containing your valve information. The echocardiogram will take about 1 hour.
Echocardiograms are performed by appointment only.
