Standard ECG studies are performed on 12-channel electrocardiograph, with the possibility of conducting parallel medicamentous tests.
It's also possible to perform respiratory function studies with parallel bronchodilator and bronchoprovocation tests.
«K+31» Clinic offers the following functional diagnostics techniques:
12-lead electrocardiogram. This technique allows you to diagnose many cardiac abnormalities, including enlarged heart muscle, disorders of electrical conductivity, insufficient blood flow and the death of the heart muscle (myocardial infarction). ECG can even determine in which particular coronary artery of the heart the blood flow is impaired. Moreover, ECG is the primary method for detecting disturbances in regularity and frequency of cardiac rhythm. Besides diagnosis of heart disease, ECG can also be used to detect other pathological states of the organism. In particular, ECG records signs of abnormal quantity of such ions as K + and Ca2 + in the blood and dysfunctions of the endocrine glands, for example thyroid. In addition, electrocardiogram indicates potentially dangerous concentrations of certain medications.
12-lead electrocardiogram on the background of physical exercise (veloergometry, treadmill test) allows to reveal explicit and latent coronary failure, determine the type of reaction to the load and exercise tolerance, detect and identify rhythm disturbances, and also to select drug therapy and to control treatment efficiency, including the patients after reconstructive surgery on the coronary arteries.
Daily (Holter) 3-lead ECG monitoring (dynamic ECG) is necessary to record transient cardiac arrhythmias and conductivity disturbances in the natural life activity of the patient and to determine the reasons and conditions for their occurrence. The study is performed to select drug therapy, monitor the effectiveness of medical treatment, as well as to identify arrhythmogenic causes of consciousness loss.
Holter 12-lead ECG monitoring with recording allows to receive more detailed characterization of rhythm and conduction disturbances, to detect explicit and latent coronary insufficiency and myocardial ischemia, as well as the location of ectopic foci of arrhythmias and ischemic changes, and also the signs of congestion and hypertrophy of the heart chambers.
Diurnal monitoring allows to repeatedly measure the patient blood pressure for 24 hours, to monitor the effectiveness medical treatment, as well as to detect blood pressure level in the early morning hours and at the time of awakening.
Bifunctional ECG and BP monitoring is performed to detect painless and painful myocardial ischemia, to evaluate interrelation between episodes of myocardial ischemia and disturbances and frequency of the heart rhythm and blood pressure levels.
Spirometry provides information on the status of the bronchopulmonary system in patients with established pulmonary disease, in patients at risk (smokers, individuals with allergo anamnesis and inherited predisposition to lung pathology) and in patients before surgery to ensure adequate anesthesia and postoperative management.
