Our outpatient care for cardiology deals with diseases of cardiovascular system and circulation.
The most vulnerable age groups are men between 30-50 and women around menopause and after.
Other vascular diseases – hypertension, arrhythmias – can occur in younger age either.
One of the common causes is excessive stress.
The role of the cardiologist is not only to perform the examinations and evaluate the results, but to reveal the risk factors and to lessen or eradicate them with appropriate medication and life-style recommendations.
Our screening program recommended annually in the aim of disease prevention consists of the following items:
- blood pressure control
- exercise ECG
- blood tests
Serious complications of cardiovascular diseases (infarction, stroke, cerebral infarction) may be decreased by 60 % with participation in screening programs.
