Cardiological examination –
A complete cardiological assessment, thorough medical history, physical examination using state-of-the-art equipment and therapeutic recommendations in accordance with international guidelines.
Echocardiogram during physical exercise or increasing doses of intravenous medication to increase heart rate. Used for detecting heart motion abnormalities, which is a sign of oxygen supply issue.
Check (e.g. pacemakers)
Using a special device, similar to a tablet, implanted devices like pacemakers, defibrillators, event recorders etc, can be wirelessly checked and properly adjusted.
Our cooperation with private stand-by ambulance with intensive care capabilities, ensures immediate and effective assessment, treatment and transportation.
A small device, at thumb size, is carried for 24h, continuously recording an electrocardiogram. Used for detecting and assessing cardiac electrical irregularities, in case they appear occasionally.
A device, smaller than a smartphone, is carried to measure blood pressure at intervals during a whole day. Out-of-office measurements are highly recommended for the correct blood pressure assessment.
Exercise on a treadmill with increasing speed and slope, under electrocardiographic surveillance. Used for assessing exercise capacity, oxygen supply issues of the heart, electrical abnormalities etc.
Blood pressure (BP) is measured at home by patients themselves, using an automated device according to a scientifically recommended schedule. Home BP values are highly important for correct assessment.
An alternative way of Echocardiogram. A special probe, containing an ultrasound transducer at its tip, is passed into the patient’s esophagus, under mild sedation. Offers further imaging and assessment.
Painless use of ultrasound through the chest (thorax) for structural as well as functional assessment of the heart. 2-D or 3-D images, enhanced with intravenous medication, in special cases.
Out of Office
Cardiological examination and consultation may be performed out of office, using portable equipment, when circumstances require it. Affiliated stand-by ambulance also covers the case of emergency.
Recording of the electrical activity of the heart, using electrodes placed on the skin. Digitally or on paper. Used for assessing electrical irregularities, perfusion issues of the heart muscle etc.
