The Cardiology Clinic of Euromedica General Clinic of Crete focuses on prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of heart diseases, applying the most modern technology and medicine.
The main objective of the Cardiology Clinic is the preventive monitoring of the patient throughout his/her life, in order to detect any problem in its early stages. The main aim of the clinic is to diagnose existing heart diseases using imaging methods or clinically.
The Cardiology Clinic of Euromedica General Clinic of Crete is equipped with all the modern and necessary technological means and staffed with highly trained and specialized medical personnel, data which guarantee the provision of high quality health services.
The following examinations take place at the Euromedica General Clinic of Crete:
An electrocardiography records on paper the heart rhythm and heart rate through the analysis of the electrical current produced by the heart.
Especially when there are symptoms that “indicate” a heart disease, such as shortness of breath, tachycardia, bradycardia, chest pain, loss of consciousness, then the Electrocardiography is an extremely useful test to identify a possible disease. The importance of the test is characterized by the fact that it can detect acute myocardial infarction, angina pectoris, myocardial ischemia, and also plays a key role in the monitoring of patients with heart conditions and in the preventive control of people practicing sports.
At the Euromedica General Clinic of Crete, a complete echocardiological study is performed, including a 2-dimensional real-time transthoracic study, M-mode and Doppler spectrum ultrasound recording and colour flow imaging.
Ultrasound uses sound waves, i.e. ultrasound, to reproduce the image of the subject’s heart. This allows the function of the heart and its valves to be checked, while the Doppler technique can be used to check for any abnormalities in pressure and blood flow within the heart chambers.
Triplex evaluates heart function, the thickness of the heart walls, the size of the heart chambers, the anatomy and function of the pericardium and heart valves. In addition, this test is used to study congenital heart disease.
