The Cardiac EASE clinic is located in 2A7 in the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute (Maz).
From the east parkade, take the 2nd level pedway towards the Maz, pass the information desk and turn right into the 2A7 waiting room where you can check at one of the registration desks.
From the Health Sciences/Jubilee LRT station, take the escalator upstairs and use the second level pedway to cross 114th street to enter the University of Alberta Hospital. Head straight past the café and look for the signage to the Maz on your right hand side.
If entering through the main entrance of the Maz on the main floor, turn right and walk towards the elevators. Take the elevator to the 2nd floor, pass the information desk and turn right into the 2A7 waiting room where you can check at one of the registration desks.
Once you arrive at the clinic, you will need to check in at the registration desk.
You may be in the clinic for several hours so please come prepared. If other tests have been ordered on the day of the clinic visit, there may be periods of waiting between appointments.
You will have an ECG done prior to your clinic appointment.
During your visit, you will be seen initially by a registered nurse or pharmacist who will review your history, medications and do a physical examination. The nurse or pharmacist will then consult with the cardiologist with whom your appointment has been scheduled. They will discuss your history, physical examination results as well as any testing you have had done prior to your clinic appointment. The health care team will then return and the cardiologist will discuss and explain your test results, review your history and physical and determine whether or not any follow up is required.
Alternatively, you may be assessed by a Nurse Practitioner who will obtain your history and physical examination and consult with a cardiologist.
Following your clinic appointment a letter will be sent to your referring physician. If there are any follow up tests or appointments related to your visit they will be ordered and the booking office will notify you when to come in for these appointments
