Woman working at home

Teleconsultations have become part of the new normal since the pandemic started. As staying at home became the most important safety measure, doctors and patients turned to the digital space to continue health check-ups and treatments.

Here at The Hospital at Maayo, we’ve observed more people making teleconsult appointments during the pandemic, the virtual check-ups covering a range of health issues. Our highly skilled medical personnel offer efficient and reliable online consultations, with the same high-quality care in typical, face-to-face appointments.

Given the downward trend in the number of coronavirus cases though and the easing of lockdown restrictions over the past month, you’re probably wondering if it’s still worth doing online consultations with your doctor. The short answer is yes.

While offering top-notch medical services in Cebu, we also advocate online consultations because of these reasons:

Why consider online consultation?

In a nutshell, online consultations offer the utmost convenience and promote safety amid the pandemic. After the health crisis, it’s likely to remain a helpful tool for patients for the following reasons:

1. You get necessary medical attention without the hassle.

Teleconsult appointments are health check-ups that are one click away. Since it only requires logging on to a video conferencing platform, you can do away with all the typical preparations for a hospital or clinic visit, including taking a bath and dressing up, traveling, filling up health declaration forms, waiting in queues, and more. As long as you have a stable internet connection, you’ll be able to consult a physician.

What’s more, you can schedule your online doctor consultation at your most convenient time, say, during your work break or before or after work. Put simply, in teleconsult appointments, you get the medical advice you need without the hassle.

At The Hospital at Maayo, online consultations can be done via mobile phone, tablet, or computer. It’s open from 8 AM to 5 PM. The hospital prioritizes providing easy access to such services, as it’s an important factor for patients choosing among online consultation solutions.

2. You save time and money.

Beyond the convenience, another thing that makes consulting doctors online beneficial for patients is the savings. Since you can do away with the travels, you get to save money on transportation.

The money you keep in your pocket can serve as extra funds for your medicines and future online consultations. At The Hospital at Maayo, the rate for teleconsult services starts at P350.

Aside from money savings, you get to save time, too. Remember, there’s no need to travel to the hospital and wait in queues. The time you save here can be spent on extended bonding activities with your loved ones or longer sleep and rest at home.

3. You can receive urgent care.

Some health concerns require immediate attention but are not life-threatening, including eye irritation, sinus symptoms, coughs, ear pain, rashes, diarrhea, migraine, and back pain. In these cases, the convenience of teleconsult appointments translates to the comfort of the patient. It’s difficult to travel with an upset stomach or a throbbing headache. Fortunately, with online consultations, you can stay put at home and still get the medical advice you need.

Do note however that there are urgent health concerns that require a physical visit to the doctor. These include chest pain, slurred speech, seizures, and asthma, among others. Call your local clinic or hospital to know if your condition is suitable for a teleconsult appointment.

4. You can consult even with mobility issues.

Most older folks and people with disabilities struggle to go to the doctor and keeping up with the appointments because of mobility issues. It’s a huge hassle to drive or take public transport. In some instances, it’s even dangerous, especially for those who go by themselves. Online doctor consultations are much more convenient and safer. With this option, you only need to visit the hospital when going for executive check-ups or treatments.

5. You easily secure a prescription.

A lot of people visit clinics and hospitals for the primary purpose of getting a prescription for an existing health condition. But often, patients aren’t able to take a break from their busy schedule to visit the clinic and see their doctor, which then results in going off medicines for a period of time.

The thing is, this can be easily addressed with telemedicine. Philippines-based health providers can issue e-prescriptions or electronic documents containing a patient’s medical prescription with the electronic signature of a licensed physician.

This can be in PDF, JPEG, or other file formats, sent via different channels, including email and messaging apps (Messenger, Viber, WhatsApp, etc.).

Online consultations remove the hassle of obtaining prescriptions from your physician and reduce the likelihood of discontinuing medications.

6. You can seek a second opinion without the hassle.

For critical health matters, second opinions are valuable. You get to know more about your condition, choose better treatment options, and prepare for the long-term effects of your decision. Yet, many refuse to seek second opinions partly because of the hassle it takes.

Travel alone to the hospital discourages people from seeking expert advice from another healthcare practitioner. In the end, they settle for their initial diagnosis and treatment plan, losing the opportunity to make a better, more well-informed health decision.

Even without stepping outside your home, you can get a second opinion. When you book online consultation services in The Hospital at Maayo, you can have the peace of mind that the doctors offering advice are competent and experienced.

We have over a hundred doctors specializing in various branches of medicine, from pulmonology and ophthalmology to infectious disease and internal medicine down to obstetrics and gynecology. You’ll easily find a doctor for your health concerns.

7. You understand your health better.

Because you’re not physically with your doctor, there are instances in the online consultation where you have to do the examination yourself. For example, you may be instructed to feel the lump in your stomach and describe it, or take your body temperature.

The doctor will then offer various explanations for different scenarios. Because you’re actively involved in the process, you get to know your body better. You’ll probably find yourself asking better questions about your health.

8. You can have a relative from overseas join you.

It’s common for people to have their loved ones with them during health check-ups. In the case of online consultations, you may have company present, but make sure to confirm with your doctor when you set your appointment. Even those from other parts of the country or the world can join the teleconsult.

More than the emotional support, your loved one may be able to provide more context to your family’s health history. This can help the online doctor in medical assessments.

9. You’ll be safe from catching diseases.

The reason teleconsult rose to popularity is the need to reduce close, physical contact with people as much as possible and curb the spread of the coronavirus. Even after the pandemic, online doctor consultations will still be the norm, especially for those people who need to lessen their exposure to the sick staying in clinics and hospitals. These include pregnant women, elderly folks, and patients who are chronically ill and immunocompromised.

What’s more, it’s hassle-free, convenient, and practical for consultations that may not need physical visits.

10. You don’t have to be a techie to consult online.

Many are intimidated by online consultation because it’s fairly a new technology in the Philippines. But the truth is, the process is simple you don’t have to be tech-savvy to make it happen. Think of it as simply talking to your loved ones on video chat or Zoom.

The process starts with booking the appointment. At The Hospital at Maayo, you can register at Then, settle the consultation fee through digital channels, Paymaya, GCash, or BDO. After that, you simply have to log into your preferred online channel on your booked schedule and see the online doctor.

How to prepare for an online consultation

Similar to a face-to-face consultation, a virtual appointment requires preparation. You’ll be able to make the most of your time with the physician when you follow these steps:

Ensure that your internet connection is stable.

The last thing you want during your online checkup is choppy audio and a video feed that keeps freezing up. Find a spot in your home where the internet connection is the strongest. It’s also good to have a backup, say, mobile data or pocket WiFi in case your main connection source acts up.

Find a quiet, undisturbed spot.

While it’s important to go to a spot where the internet connection is strong, you must also consider privacy in choosing where to see your online doctor. You may discuss sensitive health information in the course of the consultation. The physician may also ask you to do some physical examinations, which you may not be comfortable doing while other people are looking on. The bottom line is, to find a private space in your home.

Have a tech test.

Check if your audio and video are working. If possible, call a loved one or friend and ask if you can be heard and seen clearly. While you’re at it, explore video settings. You may touch up your appearance using filters or change your background if ever you want to conceal the clutter in the room.

Write down your symptoms.

With this, you can easily raise them to the online doctor and also make sure that you don’t forget anything. As you take note of the symptoms, it’s also good to record when you first experienced them and how frequently they occur. Write down your health questions, too. Once you’re in the consultation already, jot down your doctor’s advice to avoid forgetting them.

Key Takeaways

Teleconsult appointments are here to stay even after the pandemic. In a nutshell, the reason you should consider online check-ups because they are:

  • Convenient. You won’t have to travel long distances or wait hours to get the medical advice you need.
  • Comfortable. You can jump into the virtual meeting at the comfort of your home, even while in your pajamas, at least from the waist down.
  • Uncomplicated. You don’t have to be a tech master to consult a doctor online. It’s much like talking to friends and loved ones on video chat.

The First-Timer’s Guide to ECG Tests

Is it your first time going through ECG tests? The Hospital at Maayo has got you covered!

Most often than not, scheduling a consultation can be unnerving. Don’t let the process overwhelm you. The team at The Hospital at Maayo offers a much simpler guide as you go through ECG tests.

The Hospital at Maayo is composed of a team of world-class doctors in Cebu who will cater to your medical needs. With certified cardiac and vascular sonographers and cardiologists, you’ll surely have the most convenient and safe medical care experience.

Our cardiovascular health unit in Cebu provides excellent ECG tests with exceptional care. As a medical institution endorsed by the Department of Health and the first medical tourism center outside of Metro Manila, you get to enjoy high-quality medical service in Cebu that meets international standards at a reasonable cost. In this guide, we’ve rounded up all the things you need to know about ECG tests as a first-timer.

Why are ECG tests important?

Electrocardiogram (ECG) tests are done to monitor and evaluate the condition of the heart. ECG tests are important in providing early detection and treatment in order for you to avoid any further complications of the heart that might lead to crucial risks.

If you are experiencing sudden chest pains, dizziness, palpitations, breathing and other heart problems, it’s the best time to visit your local cardiologist. Here are the signs that you should watch out for.

Types of ECG Tests: A beginner’s guide

Before going into the nitty-gritty details, it’s important to understand the different types of normal ECG tests. There are 3 primary types of ECG that you should be familiar with:

  1. A resting ECG – This is the most common ECG machine test that evaluates and measures the electrical rhythm of your heart at rest. Hence, the name. With a resting ECG, you will be advised to lie down and relax for about five minutes.A series of electrodes, placed onto your skin with small sticky pads, will record the electrical activity in your heart throughout this period. This procedure takes about 10 minutes overall and is usually done in a clinic or hospital.
  2. A Stress or Exercise ECG – While pedaling an exercise bike or walking on a treadmill, this test is used to record your ECG, specifically the heart’s response to stress or exercise. It takes roughly 15 to 30 minutes to complete this type of ECG.
  3. A Holter Monitor – This refers to a wearable device that records the rhythm of your heart and its electrical activity for 24 hours. This testing is conducted mostly at home and lasts between three and ten days.

The Hospital at Maayo also offers an implantable loop recorder that is used as a heart monitoring device. As an implanted device, the loop recorder is placed beneath the skin of your chest. It works much as the electrocardiogram does, but the loop recorder enables continuous remote monitoring of your heart’s electrical activity by looking for anomalies that could lead to heart palpitations and more.

The first-timer’s guide to the ECG process for the heart

Depending on your healthcare provider, an executive check-up may include a variety of lab tests and procedures to gain a complete picture of your physical condition. So If you’ve finally decided to go through with certain ECG tests, then this guide best suits you. This section is divided into three parts to further simplify the process for you. It is up to you to have a clear understanding of each phase mentioned herein.


While a standard ECG requires no extra preparation, you can talk to your doctor about any medications or supplements you’re currently taking as these can affect findings on your ECG. Before your ECG test, here are some things to consider:

  • Consider timing
    Timing is important. Before getting started with ECG tests, make sure that you properly gauge the amount of time needed for the test. If you’re getting an ECG as part of a doctor’s appointment, plan on spending an extra 10 minutes on the test to accommodate registration and check-in process.
  • Consider the location, where it will be done
    ECG tests can be conducted in various locations such as the hospital, a clinic, or even at the office of your healthcare provider. Sometimes, an ECG test may also be conducted in the same exam room where you are consulting the doctor. In some cases, your local doctor may have a separate area where you’ll need to go for the ECG test.
    When having your ECG test at The Hospital at Maayo, you get to enjoy the pleasant waiting lounges and clinics, which are housed in a green building and constructed with a hotel-like environment for easing your mind.
  • Be mindful of what you eat and drink before the exam
    Generally, fasting is not required before the test. However, it is still recommended to be mindful of what you eat and drink before taking the ECG test. Just like preparing for any clinical testing, it’s best to gauge the overall condition of your body by getting sufficient nutrients that it needs. If you want to change the way you eat and drink to better prepare for ECG tests, it’s the right time to start with a healthy lifestyle. You can check out this article about promoting nutrition and wellness at home.
  • Gather the items that you need to bring (test order form, ID, insurance card, etc.)
    Before your scheduled ECG test, prepare valid IDs and insurance cards that might be needed to complete the test. Most medical institutions are legally bound to gather information from their patients. The Hospital at Maayo hands out test order forms or identification forms for recording, safety, and security purposes. To avoid any delays, prepare these items early.


Keep in mind that during the ECG tests, the steps may vary depending on the condition of your heart or what your cardiologist prescribes,

  • You will be asked to change into a hospital gown
    In the testing room, you’ll be requested to change clothes and wear a hospital gown to ensure proper testing. The technician will keep your privacy by covering you with a sheet or gown and only exposing the skin that is required for the test. Any jewelry or objects you have with you will also be asked to be removed.
  • Attaching electrodes
    Electrodes (or the plastic patches that stick to the skin) will be attached to certain areas on the arms, chest, and legs. Up to twelve electrodes may be attached to the limbs and chest; this is the standardized placement to record an efficient trace. The wires of the electrodes are connected to the monitor which shows the information for ECG interpretation.
  • Remain still asmovement can disrupt the pattern
    For the test, you will lie flat on a table or bed. It’s critical that you lie still and don’t talk throughout the ECG so that the tracing will be accurate as possible. The technician may enter identifying information about you into the machine’s computer once the leads are attached. The electrocardiogram (ECG) will be started. The tracing will be performed in a short amount of time, usually about a few minutes.


After your ECG tests, you are free to go back to your normal routine, unless your doctor prescribes a different diet for you. Once you are done with the test, your local healthcare provider will explain the results of your ECG test.

  1. Electrodes are removed
    The technician will remove the leads and disconnect the skin electrodes once the tracing is complete. You might notice sticky matter that remains from where the electrodes have been, but the removal of the electrodes is the least of your concern as the electricians at The Hospital at Maayo are trained to provide careful medical attention and quality care.
  2. Wait for the results
    Depending on the condition of your heart, your doctor may discuss the results with you and explain different aspects of the heart diagram. Your results will show:

    • Heart rate – Unless the doctor explains a more definitive interpretation, a normal heart rate at rest is 60 to 100 beats per minute. When there are fluctuations in your heart rate, you can see it on the ECG results.
    • Blood and oxygen supply – An ECG result also shows whether you have a reduced blood flow that might be causing problems in your chest.
    • Heart rhythm – This simply refers to the electrical activity coming from the sinus node.
    • Heart structure – Any change in your heart’s structure (an enlargement of the heart) gives a clear sign of other heart problems or defects.

Keep in mind that while the ECG can be used to provide a definitive diagnosis of some cardiac disorders, such as cardiac arrhythmia or heart surgery, it is most commonly employed as a screening test. As a result, anomalies on the ECG are frequently followed by a more conclusive test in order to provide a definitive diagnosis.

What’s great about an ECG test is that it is a non-invasive test that doesn’t require any further medications (such as sedatives) or recovery time. After your ECG test, you can go back to your usual activities.

Key takeaways

First-timers and seasoned professionals alike can use this guide to manage expectations when it comes to ECG tests. You’ll be able to properly anticipate anything you need to prepare before, during, and after your ECG test. As takeaways, remember to equip yourself with the proper preparation, pay close attention to your heart, and invest in your health for the long run.

  • Equip yourself with the right mind and preparation. ECG tests need not be complex. Remember that ECG tests are more relevant than ever, especially since the current pandemic continues to loom over. The bottom line is: you can’t afford to face heart issues in the most unfortunate time.
  • Pay close attention to your heart. To have better heart health in the long run, create a healthier approach to your lifestyle and diet. You’ll be surprised how even the smallest change can create the biggest impact.

Everything You Need to Know About Congenital Anomaly Scans

And true to its beliefs and values, The Hospital at Maayo prioritizes every woman’s wellness in all stages of their lives. With pregnancy being one of the most life-changing and delicate experiences for any woman, The Hospital offers the best women’s wellness procedures tailored for this special health condition, one being the Congenital Anomaly Scan.

What is a congenital anomaly scan?

A congenital anomaly scan, also known as a mid-pregnancy scan, takes a close look at your baby and your womb (uterus). This scan helps would-be mothers to find out about the possible problems or concerns regarding their baby’s development.

There are lots of conditions that can be detected through the anomaly scan, which can be treated early on or after your baby is born. Through these scans, your healthcare provider can give the best treatment and care for you and your baby.

6 things you need to know about congenital anomaly scans

Pregnancy is an exciting time for most women, but also a delicate phase for would-be mothers. To put yourself at ease, a congenital anomaly scan can be very helpful in finding out your baby’s condition, and also sharing in the wonderful moment of your baby’s development with your husband or family.

But aside from those things, here are some vital facts that you should know about congenital anomaly scans.

1. There’s an expectation and then there’s the reality.

When it comes to health, we should never second guess how our entire body is doing. We cannot just skip health checkups just because we are feeling fine, especially in pregnancies.

The congenital anomaly scans ensure that you know exactly how your baby is doing. You cannot exactly see and base your baby’s development from simply relying on what you are feeling, so you should always expect the best and the worst. While we cannot truly avoid unfortunate cases where babies may have some development problems in any course of your pregnancy, at least scans can help in early detection and treatment.

2. A congenital anomaly scan takes 30 minutes.

The congenital anomaly scan only takes half an hour, so you don’t have to worry much about spending hours on this procedure. Rest assured that your sonographer will keep you comfortable while giving a comprehensive examination and explanation on your baby’s conditions.

3. Congenital anomaly scans are done at about 20-28 weeks.

Though the scan is best known as the 20-week scan to some healthcare experts, it may also be done within 20-28 weeks. The said duration is the most ideal for this scan since your baby’s body structure (skin, arms, legs, internal organs, etc.) should have been developed at this time.

For this reason, sonographers get to have a better look at possible conditions concerning your baby’s structural development. But take note that not all conditions may be spotted in this scan, so it is still important to have your executive health-checkups during the course of your pregnancy.

4. A congenital anomaly scan detects spina bifida, cleft lip or palate, or cardiac abnormalities.

One of the significant reasons why you need to get anomaly scans is because they help detect congenital abnormalities. Some of them are:

  • Spina bifida – a condition where the baby’s spine and spinal cord didn’t form properly.
  • Cleft lip or palate – a condition where the baby’s lip tissue didn’t join properly.
  • Cardiac abnormalities – conditions where the baby’s heart structures have defects.
  • Edward’s syndrome – a condition where the baby has extra chromosome 18, which causes severe disability.

There are other conditions that can be detected through anomaly scans. While some conditions can be treated or can still be given interventions once your baby is born, some conditions can be life-threatening. But take note that some conditions may be harder to detect in anomaly scans alone, so ensure that you always consult your doctor.

5. It is perfectly safe for you and your baby.

There are no medical risks for you and your baby when it comes to taking congenital anomaly scans. Through years of medical research, scans are proven to be safe, and do not have the same risks of X-rays for babies.

Having a congenital anomaly scan also ensures your baby’s safety. It will help you make better decisions with your husband or family, if there should be an unfortunate event when your risk for miscarriage or other health conditions will be detected.

6. There are available services for you should any issue be detected.

The Hospital at Maayo values your life and the baby that you are carrying. With that said, there are lots of premium medical services that The Hospital can offer from diagnostic tests, to therapeutic care, and other special treatment services.

Congenital anomaly scan process

During the congenital anomaly scan, your sonographer will take a good look at the different parts of your baby’s body. To start the procedure, you’ll be asked to lie on a couch and to lower your pants to your hips. You would also have to lift your top to your chest so that your abdomen remains uncovered.

After that, the sonographer will place tissue paper around your clothes to protect from the scan gel. This gel will be put on your tummy, where the handheld probe would be used to scan the body of your baby.

To give you an idea of what you’ll look at during the congenital anomaly scan, here are the usual processes that sonographers will do:

  1. The sonographer will look at the head and brain of your child. Brain conditions, though rare, will be visible at this stage.
  2. The baby’s face will be checked, and this is when cleft lip or palates are detected.
  3. The baby’s spine is examined to check if the bones are forming properly and the baby’s skin is covering the spine.
  4. The baby’s abdominal wall is next. The sonographer checks if all internal organs are covered.
  5. The sonographer checks the baby’s heart, especially the major veins and arteries to ensure that they carry blood to and from your child’s heart.
  6. The baby’s stomach is also examined, where you will see the amniotic fluid that your baby is lying in. It usually looks like a black bubble.
  7. The baby’s kidneys are next to be examined, and the sonographer checks if your baby has two kidneys.
  8. Your baby’s other body parts such as arms, hands, feet, and other parts of the body to check if they are complete.
  9. The placenta and umbilical cord is also checked as well, in case there may be problems with the placement of your baby’s umbilical cord.

Why do I need to have this scan done?

The idea of doing the congenital anomaly scan, especially the possibility of detecting a condition, can be a nerve-wracking experience for any would-be parent. But it helps put your mind at ease that your baby is growing just fine, and also helps you decide on your next course of action should your baby have health conditions present.

Usually, your sonographer will recommend you to get another series of tests just to be sure about your baby’s condition. Your healthcare provider will explain the reasons for such tests, and how these procedures are done.

Take note as well that in some cases, you might be asked to do another congenital anomaly scan. Don’t worry too much as anomaly scans are sometimes repeated for different reasons. For example, the most common reason is that the sonographer was not able to see everything clearly because (1) your baby is not in the best position for the scan or (2) you are overweight.

To clarify, being overweight can make the scan images less clear. Scans use safe, high-frequency waves to get a better scan of your baby. So if you have more body fat, these waves make it difficult for the waves to pass through.

There are lots of things that can happen in your nine months of pregnancy, so it is important to check on you and your baby’s condition throughout those months. Regular checkups and taking the recommended procedures like congenital anomaly scans help avoid unfortunate health problems in this wonderful moment of your life.

A toothache is a clear indication that you need to visit your dentist as soon as possible. There is no point in waiting for the pain to go away since it might just worsen.

Toothaches mean that it’s time for you to schedule an odontectomy with your dentist. Odontectomy involves a surgical extraction of a tooth that is partially or completely encompassed by bone.

Odontectomy involves ostectomy which involves the removal of part of a bone to be able to address and perform more complicated dental procedures. This is done commonly on impact third molars or better known as wisdom teeth.

Normal wisdom teeth extraction takes 3-4 days of recovery, but impacted teeth may need a week since it involves a more delicate procedure.

Trust only doctors that are experts and certified so that you will be guided thoroughly throughout the whole process before and after the dental procedure.

8. Periodontics

Your teeth shouldn’t be your only concern when it comes to dental health. An important aspect of overall oral health includes healthy gums.

This is where periodontics steps in. It refers to a dental specialty devoted to the treatment of the supporting structures of the teeth which primarily includes gums, bones, and other associated tissues.

Gum diseases happen when these associated tissues are infected by bacteria due to plaque-buildup. Failing to address this problem leads to further complications such as gingivitis and tooth decay.

This is why the limited understanding of Filipinos of dental problems is not healthy in the long run. It is not just about cleaning your teeth but also taking care of other parts of your mouth.

9. Orthodontics

Do you want perfectly aligned teeth so you can show off your smile in your selfies? Then book an appointment for orthodontics now.

Orthodontics deals with the diagnosis, prevention, and correction of malpositioned teeth and jaws. This is done with the help of braces and devices that reposition your jaw if you have an over or underbite.

Dentists at The Hospital at Maayo are experts who can correctly tell what you need to achieve that perfect smile.

10. Dental implants

When a tooth is missing due to trauma or an infection, it may snowball to complications such as bone loss and defective speech. Dentists address this problem with the help of dental implants.

Dental implant is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis. It is intended to provide artificial teeth such as crowns, bridges, or dentures.

11. Teeth whitening

Discoloration of your teeth is normal since it is exposed to different staining elements from foods. Coffee lovers for instance are particularly prone to this discoloration, especially those who have more than two cups of coffee a day.

The simple treatment to make your teeth look healthy and fresh is through teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is done to lighten the teeth and remove discoloration. Teeth whitening requires no recovery time. Think of it as a spa day for your teeth so they will come out looking great once you step out of the dentist’s clinic.

Stop thinking of your dental health as an afterthought. There is so much more to good oral hygiene than simply brushing your teeth. There is no need to fear your dentist especially since the professionals at The Hospital at Maayo will guide and help you through the whole process
