Our focus is on the prevention, early detection and treatment of cardiovascular risk factors such as:
and of cardiovascular diseases
which are the most frequent cause of death worldwide, as well as in the diagnosis and therapy of venous diseases:
In addition to a comprehensive physical examination and recording of the personal risk profile, we also offer a series of technical examinations:
Exercise ECG (ergometry)
Ergometry is the detection of physical performance under stress (see wheel picture) and under observation of certain body functions using an ECG. This capacity is assessed qualitatively by age, body size and weight.
The advantage is an increased sensitivity for pathological changes in the coronary vessels. At the same time it can also be assessed whether or not essential values such as blood pressure, pulse and other cardiac-circulatory parameters lie within the normal range.
NOTE: It is useful on the day of the examination to wear a comfortable pair of trousers and sports shoes also not sober or full-bodied.
24 hours blood pressure measurement
The 24-hour blood pressure measurement measures the blood pressure values over a whole day in order to get a better overview (day and night profile) about the blood pressure regulation.
The long-term blood pressure measurement works in principle as a normal blood pressure measurement, but over 24 hours. A mobile blood pressure measuring device with the size of an approximately 15cm x 15cm box (see picture) is placed with a carrying strap around the chest and connected to a blood pressure cuff on the patient's upper arm.
The blood pressure is measured at regular predetermined intervals by means of cuff pressure.
NOTE: Do not take a shower or shower during the ongoing examination.
The outpatient 24-hour measurements (Holter ECG) are used to record the electrocardiogram over a longer period of time in order to be able to detect sporadically occurring cardiac arrhythmia.
The patient must record his activities in a protocol in order to better evaluate future changes of the electrocardiogram and to be able to detect their possible cause. Time of getting up, breakfast, eating, work, certain activities, etc.
Ultrasonic examination of the neck, arm, pelvic and other (arteries) (not available at the moment)
By means of high-resolution ultrasound examination, these arteries can be examined in their entire course and thus, for example, Narrowings or vascular occlusions can be more precisely located and assessed. Furthermore, by measuring the intima-media thickness in the carotid artery, an early detection of vessel changes can be detected and the patient's "heart and vessel risk" can be estimated.
NOTE: no preparation is necessary
