It is not quite true that cardiovascular problems occur only in older people. But, unfortunately, diseases of the heart and blood vessels are getting younger, and more and more people over the age of 30 turns to cardiologists with various problems. This is due to the hard rhythm of today’s life, namely chronic stress, poor ecology, alcohol abuse, prolonged smoking, a sedentary lifestyle, overweight, etc., as well as hereditary diseases.
The Healthy&Happy Medical Center employed qualified doctors and has collected modern diagnostic techniques that allow us to identify any disorders in the work of the heart in the early stages. It can be the key to successful treatment and a guarantee of maintaining a high-quality and long life.
When to visit a cardiologist?
Often cardiovascular disease can appear as symptoms that patients do not associate with heart problems. Therefore, people must be attentive to their health and regularly visit a cardiologist in order to prevent and early detection of cardiovascular system diseases.
You should definitely visit a cardiologist if you feel:
In addition, a consultation of a cardiologist is necessary if you have been diagnosed with:
Comprehensive diagnostics play an important role in identifying blood vessels and heart problems. In cardiology, laboratory and instrumental diagnostics are used to accurately diagnose.
Laboratory diagnostics is aimed at identifying risk factors that can affect the development of cardiovascular diseases, namely, an increased cholesterol content or determination of the lipid complex. It allows the doctor to make conclusions about the possibility of disease development and predict its course.
Among the instrumental diagnostics methods, the most common is electrocardiography (ECG).
Electrocardiography is a research method that allows the doctor to exam the status of the cardiovascular system and identifies pathologies in people of any age.
Electrocardiography is absolutely safe and at the same time informative diagnostic method. ECG is performed as a screening diagnostic method for patients of any age.
ECG allows us to identify and assess:
An ECG is prescribed if, in the process of examination, the doctor suspects the cardiovascular diseases, as well as for their prevention.
To obtain more reliable results, the examination is performed after 10-15 minutes of rest and not earlier than 2 hours after eating.
Another common method for diagnostics of the heart condition is echocardiography (an ultrasound test of the heart).
Ultrasound diagnostics of the heart (ECHO) allows a doctor to assess the structure of the heart, identify pathological changes in the heart and its valve apparatus, and as well heart’s work (fullness, etc.). In addition, the procedure is recommended to prevent the development of severe heart lesions, determine the zone of myocardial ischemia (impaired blood supply to the heart muscle), identify past myocardial infarctions, which are not always visible during the electrocardiography.
ECHO is prescribed if the doctor suspects heart disease, as well as if the patient has initial symptoms of heart disease, namely:
To diagnose the status of the vessels, dopplerography is prescribed.
Doppler ultrasound test is an ultrasound examination of the venous vessels, which is performed by the Doppler technique. It allows us to identify any circulatory disorders in the vessels of the head and neck.
Doppler ultrasonography of blood vessels is prescribed to detect any vascular lesions, namely:
Indications for Doppler ultrasonography are:
Doppler ultrasonography has no side effects and contraindications.
Among the additional methods of instrumental diagnostics in the Healthy & Happy Medical Center are available:
The cardiac stress test (veloergometry)
Veloergometry is an electrocardiographic study during physical activity on a special bicycle (veloergometer). This diagnostics technique lets to identify the initial stages and latent forms of coronary heart disease, as well as to deteсе physical exercise tolerance.
The cardiac stress test is prescribed if the patient has complaints about or if:
Before the test, it is necessary to get a consultation and special training to identify contraindications for the cardiac stress test procedure:
Holter monitoring allows us to assess cardiac activity in normal conditions of daily life and during sleep. Based on the monitoring results, the cardiologist can detect the reaction of the heart to various types of stress.
Combined monitoring of ECG and blood pressure reveals:
