About me


My name is Stefan Busnatu, I am medical doctor, specialized in cardiology, with a PhD in cardiovascular rehabilitation, currently working in Bucharest, Romania, at the "Bagdasar Arseni" Emergency Clinical Hospital, within the Cardiology Department.

In the University of Medicine and Pharmacy "Carol Davila" Bucharest I work as the Vice-Dean within the Faculty of Medicine. 

I`ve been appointed Member of the EAPC/ESC secondary prevention and recovery section.

Complementary to all these activitities, I am involved in research projects with other European partners, in preventive and rehabilitation cardiology, with the main purpose to identify and promote the best strategies for reducing the incidence of cardiovascular disease and improving the quality of life of those who have already been diagnosed with these affections.

I want to help you keep your health.

Our free time is more and more limited, reducing the possibility of taking the best choices for our health, like a healthy diet, or practicing physical activity on a regular basis. At the same time, Internet access gives us a lot of health related information, most of it being confusing. That’s why it becomes a great challenge to select the right one and afterwards put it into practice.

To overcome these barriers and to make your time more efficient, for adopting a healthy lifestyle, that could prevent the development of cardiovascular disease (a disabling condition, both through the degree of disability and the psychological imbalance created), I invite you to regularly follow my posts.

Through the daily practice as a cardiologist, using the medical knowledge accumulated through training in the field of preventive and sports cardiology, both in Romania and abroad, I have accumulated a rich experience in the diagnosis and management of cardiovascular diseases using:

Medical evaluation tools:

  • Complex cardiology consultation, physical evaluation, including detailed anamnesis (personal and family history, sports assessment)
  • Resting electrocardiogram
  • Cardiac ultrasound
  • Electrocardiographic monitored stress test
  • Spiroergometry for assessing exercise tolerance of patients with heart failure, physical condition of athletes
  • Long-term ECG monitoring - ECG Holter
  • Long-term blood pressure measurement - BP Holter

Personalized programs for:

  • Primary prevention of cardiovascular diseases to prevent them from occurring
  • Secondary prevention (cardiovascular rehabilitation)
  • Cardiovascular screening, in order to conduct physical activity safely
  • Quantification and optimization of sports performance
