A painless test that allows analyzing heart frequency by reading electric impulses.
A basic electrocardiogram (ECG) is done while the patient is lying on a medical bed, a stress ECG needs physical activity to be done (either on a treadmill or on specific medical steps).
This test is necessary not only for routine follow-ups but also for obtaining competitive or non-competitive sports fitness certificates (a single ECG is sufficient in case of certificate renewals).
This procedure is addressed to everyone, both to those suffering from heart diseases, and to those wishing to monitor their heart functionality. Within a single appointment the following are performed:
The heart is the most important organ of our body. Thanks to the heart, oxygen is transmitted throughout our body and enables us to breath and in one word: to live. Cardiology deals with this tireless muscle, which in a lifespan beats an average of 3 billion times, by means of prevention, diagnosis and, when necessary, therapy.
A cardiological examination is the first contact or the continuation of a diagnostic or therapeutic procedure and represents the essential basis for the diagnosis and treatment of a cardiological issue. The doctor listens to the patient and then examines him. A cardiological evaluation is usually completed by performing an electrocardiogram.
A cardiological examination is fundamental for the diagnosis and treatment of the main heart diseases among which: hypertension, ischemic cardiopathy, heart failure, cardiomyopathies, heart valve diseases or patients with valve prostheses. Furthermore, patients who do not have known diseases are referred to outpatient heart clinics, because they need the cardiologist’s opinion for symptoms such as: chest pain, exertion or at rest breathlessness (dyspnea), fainting (syncope) or dizziness, palpitations or asthenia.
