Heart diseases can manifest with symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, cold sweat, palpitations, dizziness or fainting. But sometimes heart diseases can lead to sudden death without any preliminary complaints. Cardiovascular diseases are more common in patients who have known cardiovascular risk factors like diabetes, obesity, smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, family heart disease, etc. Even if patients with such risk factors do not have complaints, their check-up is vital for early diagnosis and treatment.
Cardiology also deals with the diagnosis and treatment of congenital, rheumatic, arrhythmia, hypertension and coronary insufficiency diseases.
Non-invasive examinations (ECG, Echocardiography, tread-mill-test, Blood Pressure-Holter, Rhythm-Holter, laboratory tests) are available in the cardiology unit of our hospital. Diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of cardiovascular risk factors play a major role in cardiology as well as diagnosis and treatment of heart diseases.
Our hospital has a special and profound experience in the diagnosis and treatment of diabetes, which is one of the important cardiovascular risk factors. Our Coronary Intensive Care Unit can provide follow-up and treatment of life-threatening cardiovascular disorders for patients who happen to be treated for another reason.
