The cardiology consultation and resting ECG provide a valuable initial picture of the patient's heart health, helping to identify the need for further investigations or to establish a treatment plan.
The main role of cardiac ultrasound is to evaluate the structure and function of the heart, providing information about the size and shape of the heart, the motion and thickness of the heart walls, the function of the heart valves, and the blood flow through the heart and adjacent great vessels. This method is essential for the diagnosis and monitoring of heart conditions such as heart failure, valvular disease, congenital heart disease and pericarditis.
The test can help identify heart problems, evaluate the effectiveness of medical treatments, or establish an appropriate exercise plan for the patient. It is a non-invasive and controlled method to assess exercise tolerance and cardiovascular health.
It is a diagnostic procedure that records the electrical activity of the heart for an extended period, usually 24-48 hours, but sometimes longer. The patient wears a small, portable device called a Holter monitor, which is attached to the chest via electrodes. This device continuously records the heart's electrical activity during normal daily activities, including sleep.
It involves the use of a portable blood pressure measuring device that measures and records blood pressure at regular intervals throughout the day and night, allowing the patient to continue with their normal daily activities. The aim is to get a more accurate and detailed picture of how the patient's blood pressure varies over the course of a normal day, including reactions to daily activities and the influence of sleep
The use of telecommunication and information technologies for remote monitoring of patients with cardiovascular diseases. This approach allows doctors to collect vital data about patients' heart health in real time or periodically, without the need for patients to be physically present in a medical setting.
Preventing heart problems through detailed pre-participation assessments, including medical history, physical exams, and specific tests, such as ECG, echocardiogram, and stress testing, to identify potential cardiac risks that could be exacerbated by intense exercise.
Identification and analysis of risk factors such as high blood pressure, hyperlipidemia (high levels of lipids in the blood), diabetes, smoking, obesity, sedentary lifestyle, and a family history of cardiovascular disease.
Detailed process for the diagnosis and management of this condition, which is one of the most important risk factors for the development of cardiovascular disease.
Essential step in the process of preparing patients for surgery. The purpose of this assessment is to identify and quantify the risk of cardiovascular complications that could occur during or after the surgical procedure, to optimize the medical management of the patient and to make informed decisions about the safety and optimal timing of intervention.
The purpose of monitoring is to identify patients at high risk of cardiovascular complications and to implement prevention or early intervention strategies to minimize the impairment of cardiac function in the context of oncological treatments.
Complex and essential process intended to determine the health status and recovery capacity of patients who are candidates for organ transplantation, such as heart, liver, kidney, or lung transplantation.
