What does the cardiologist check include?
Cardiology study and evaluation with diagnostic tests such as echocardiography, stress test and electrocardiogram.
What is an echocardiogram?
Using an ultrasound wave emitter that is placed on the chest wall, images of different planes of the heart are obtained by assessing the size of the heart chambers and their thickness. It allows to discover structural alterations in the heart.
What is a stress test or exercise test?
A stress test or ergometry is used to diagnose angina pectoris, acute myocardial infarction, cardiac disorders such as arrhythmias that appear during physical activity and are not evident at rest. It is done by recording the electrocardiogram while the patient exerts an effort, on a stationary bike or running on a treadmill.
