Does anyone know what a cardiac echo is? I was in the hospital a couple months ago for chest pains, and they wanted me to get one. But I wanted to wait til I got home for break. I haven't had them anymore,think it would still be worth getting checked out?

That's a really familiar term, but I wasn't familiar so here's a link:

It probably wouldn't hurt to get it checked out.

Re: health topic...
A cardiac echo is indeed an echocardiogram - an ultrasound performed on the heart. It's painless (there's a bit of discomfort if they press the pen-probe in a bit too hard, but just let them know if it starts getting really uncomfortable) and non-invasive.

It's a very useful way of examining the heart and can tell the cardiologists a lot about one's heart function, so I'd say yes - even if the pain's gone, have one done just to be on the safe side.

If a doctor wants you to get a heart scan, the answer should always, always be yes.
