The medical field of cardiology is concerned with the examination and treatment of both congenital and acquired heart diseases. At My Clinic, we offer cardiological care for adult patients. We take pride in our individualized approach to each patient, our state-of-the-art diagnostics, and on always setting aside enough time for a thorough examination.
Our therapeutic competence spans a broad range of heart diseases and complaints, the most common of which include:
As in other medical specialties, so in cardiology, the examination will begin with a thorough conversation between the physician and the patient about the latter’s complaints. The cardiologist will examine the patient visually, by palpation, and by auscultation (i.e., using a stethoscope to listen to sounds inside the chest), and measure the patient’s blood pressure. The specialist will then consider and determine the further course of action, whereas our practice avails of a broad range of screening methods. To mention but the most fundamental ones:
For the event that a patient may need additional specialist examinations, we have partnered up with consultants in the nearby vicinity.
A cardiac stress test is a non-invasive physical examination to monitor the work of the heart under stress. During this stress test, the patient rides a cycle ergometer (exercise bike), gradually increasing the load after two minutes. During the examination, the doctor observes the patient’s ECG curve, which shows changes related to, for example, blood flow to the heart muscle or various possible arrhythmias. The heart rate and blood pressure are also monitored to see if they correspond to the stress.
At My Clinic, you may rely with complete trust on top-notch healthcare administered by a team of seasoned experts, who as a matter of course engage in close interdisciplinary cooperation. A special cardiological screening will often be recommended by your general practitioner or internist, who oversees the proper exchange of the entire documentation as a part of the referral. The client has convenient access to the full range of care under one roof, and saves valuable time also thanks to the precision and reliability of our appointment system.
