A cardiological examination is useful to assess the risk of coronary heart disease in men over the age of 40 and in women over the age of 50, with a detailed examination if necessary. During cardiology, a physical examination is carried out after an interview of complaints, medical history and a review of existing test results.
If you have any questions regarding the examination, please feel free to contact our colleagues and we will be happy to provide you with clarification.
What kind of problems can we consult a cardiologist about?
The following complaints are recommended: chest pain, choking, irregular or rapid heartbeat, loss of consciousness of unknown origin.
The test is recommended for people with a family history of sudden cardiac death or hereditary heart disease in direct relatives.
Part of any cardiology examination, a graphic representation of the electrical processes in the heart. If necessary, a 24-hour recording is made using a portable device or a device similar to an exercise bike to record the ECG curve under physical stress.
Echocardiography shows the shape, size and movement of the heart's cavities, walls and valves, along with Doppler scans to see the characteristics of blood flow within the heart.
HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
A 24-hour blood pressure monitor with a portable device (ABPM) helps to diagnose blood pressure and optimise treatment.
DETERMINATION OF THE OXYGEN CONTENT IN THE BLOOD
We can do this without taking blood samples, using pulse oximetry. In the case of suspected coronary artery disease, the blood vessels can be imaged by computed tomography. We use state-of-the-art instruments and equipment, with a reliable laboratory background.
We evaluate the cardiology results together and draw up a treatment plan with our patients.
Cardiology focuses not only on the congenital and acquired diseases of the heart, but also on the blood circulation and the blood vessels near the heart. Cardiovascular diseases, defined as cardiovascular diseases, include hypertension, cerebral vascular catastrophe, peripheral artery occlusion, among others.
