The heart is a muscular organ with four cavities that contract with a determined sequence, pumping the blood that the organism needs. The contraction of the muscular fibers is controlled by an electrical current that crosses the heart by different trajectories and at controlled speed.
We have individualized cardiovascular check-ups, customized to the needs of each patient. In our check-ups, you will have an exhaustive medical history and a complete cardiovascular examination, as well as you can have an electrocardiogram, an echocardiogram and an effort test. All this accompanied by a complete blood sample which include the realization of all the analytical factors of cardiovascular risk.

EFFORT TEST OR ERGOMETRY
Ischemic heart disease is the disease caused by arteriosclerosis of the coronary arteries, which provide the blood supply to the heart muscle. No symptoms occur until the stenosis of the coronary artery is so severe that it causes a loss of balance between the supply of oxygen to the myocardium and its needs. In these cases, myocardial ischemia (stable angina pectoris) or sudden occlusion due to thrombosis of the artery leading to Acute Coronary Syndrome (unstable angina and acute myocardial infarction) occurs.
MONITORING OF ELECTROCARDIOGRAM (ECG HOLTER)
The electrical current that gives rise to each beat originates in the sinus node located in the upper part of the upper right cavity of the heart (right atrium). The speed at which this nodule discharges the electric current determines the heart rate. This speed is influenced by nerve impulses and by the concentrations of certain hormones in the bloodstream.
ARTERIAL BLOOD PRESSURE MONITORING (ABPM)
Hypertension means greater resistance for the heart, which responds by increasing its muscle mass (left ventricular hypertrophy) to cope with this overexertion. The increase in muscle mass ends up being harmful because it is not accompanied by an equivalent increase in blood flow and can lead to coronary insufficiency and angina. As a result of the effort of the heart muscle can suffer arrhythmias
