Avicenna Hospital Cardiology Department manages the diagnosis and treatment processes with its specialist physicians in heart diseases. In these processes, almost all the possibilities of modern medicine are used.
Avicenna Hospital Cardiology Department serves both newborns and patients with advanced heart diseases. In this process, we provide examination, diagnosis and treatment services to our patients of all ages together with our specialist doctor staff. On the other hand, we are with our patients in the coronary intensive care service.
ECG is a detailed examination of the heart muscles and neural conduction system with a simple explanation. In this process, the electrical movements experienced in the heart are recorded. Electrocardiography gives much more accurate results when examined together with the symptoms that doctors notice during the examination. ECG alone is not a sufficient test method and tests such as analysis and film may also be required. ECG is a very important method for diagnosing especially cardiovascular occlusions, rhythm disorders, heart valve diseases and insufficient heart.
During the stress test, patients get on a treadmill and start walking. The speed and inclination at which the patient will walk are determined by the doctor’s adjustments. The doctor determines the pace of the walk with the moves he makes and ensures that the heart rate of the patient increases. Therefore, the effort test should be performed with a specialist and experienced doctor from the initial stage to the very last moment. Effort test is very important in terms of heart diseases and it is an indispensable method for diagnosis and diagnosis. Effort results are given immediately after the examinations are completed. A light meal is required 3 hours before the stress test. Afterwards, a small amount of water can be drunk, but food cannot be eaten, provided that you do not exaggerate. If there is a previously taken ECG, the patient should bring it with him to take the effort test. Male patients need to shave the hair in the chest area. Our female patients may be advised to adjust their clothing according to the effort. On the other hand, the doctor may ask patients to stop taking certain medications before taking the exercise test. This needs to be discussed and agreed in advance.
Nuclear cardiology is a set of methods that focus on the best diagnosis of cardiovascular problems with the help of infarction imaging, planar imaging, myocardial perfusion imaging and single photon emission computed tomography (Sect).
It is a method of examining the electrical whole of the heart by sending thin tubes, which is called the catheter located in the heart. Electrophysiology examinations measure the measurement of electrical signals within the heart, rhythm disturbances and accelerated heartbeats, namely tachycardia.
