The hospital provides non-invasive cardiology evaluation and treatment both for inpatient emergent cases at the medical departments wards and outpatient basis at a regular basis in the form of a specialist clinic (OPD) with new and/or follow up appointments also including clinical cardiology function evaluations for specific cardiology cases.
Examples of patients with cardiology disorders which are evaluated and followed are ischemic heart disease, heart failure, heart arrhythmias such as the common existing atrial flatter, more complicated hypertension such as pulmonary hypertension.
The department offers different heart function (cardiac) diagnostic testing modalities including:
- Resting ECG evaluations
- ECG stress test (treadmill)
- Transthoracic and trans-esophageal echocardiography
- Telemetry and Holter monitoring (i.e. 24 hours continuous measurements of long-term ECG outside the hospital)
- 24-hours blood pressure evaluations
