A major part of the diseases of the heart and of the cardiovascular system are preventable or, if diagnosed at an early stage, are efficiently treatable.

Cardiovascular diseases are the world's largest killers, claiming 17.1 million lives a year. Tobacco use, an unhealthy diet, physical inactivity and harmful use of alcohol increase the risk of heart attacks and stroke. These are the most important behavioral risk factors of heart disease, responsible for about 80% of coronary heart disease and cerebrovascular disease. The effects may show up in individuals as raised blood pressure, raised blood glucose (patients with diabetes), raised blood lipids, and overweight and obesity; these are called 'intermediate risk factors'. These all are the "classical" modifiable risk factors.

A significant reason for the high mortality rate is, however, the fact that the disease is often recognized too late. Thus the screening tests are very important for the prevention and for the early detection of heart diseases and other silent killers such as diabetes and hypertension.

You should consider consulting a cardiologist with the following conditions and symptoms:

  • Chest pressure or pain or other chest discomfort complaints, particularly chest pain that comes with physical exertion and eases with rest.

Severe pain and pain spreading to the shoulders, neck or arms may be cause for seeking emergency medical help!

  • Cardiology - Coral Medical Center BudapestAngina (Angina pectoris), new or unusual shortness of breath, sudden weakness, dizziness, fainting, sweating, nausea
  • Indigestion, particularly if indigestion is unusual for you, if it does not respond to antacids, or if you do not associate its occurrence with eating
  • Swelling of feet
  • Blood pressure problems
  • Heart rate disturbances (arrhythmias), palpitations
  • Atrial fibrillation, flutter
  • Coronary artery diseases
  • If you recently had a heart attack (myocardial infarction)
  • After cardiac surgery
  • After cardiac catheterization
  • Valvular heart diseases
  • Cardiac insufficiency
  • Patients with pacemakers
  • Lipid metabolism disturbances (high cholesterol, triglycerides)
  • Evaluation and understanding of risk factors and screening (preventive cardiology)

Pain is Not Always a Symptom of Heart Attack!

Get emergency medical help immediately if you experience any of the following symptoms for two minutes or more:

  • Pressure, fullness, squeezing or pain in the center of the chest.
  • Pain spreading to the shoulders, neck or arms.
  • Severe pain, sudden weakness, dizziness, fainting, sweating, nausea or shortness of breath.
  • For those with angina, any change in the frequency, duration or intensity of the attacks, or symptoms that don't respond to nitroglycerin

Cardiology consultation activities at Coral Medical Center:

  • Diagnosis of heart and cardiovascular diseases
  • Identification of risk factors and their treatment
  • Primary prevention activity by controlling and monitoring the risk factors (smoking cessation, physical activity, blood lipids and glucose, nutrition, stress management, change of life style, awareness to healthy life style).
  • Secondary prevention includes screening of those that already have symptoms, risk factor profile establishment and control. Important evidence from clinical trials has emerged recently that further supports and broadens the merits of aggressive risk-reduction therapies for patients with established coronary and other atherosclerotic vascular disease, including peripheral arterial disease, atherosclerotic aortic disease, and carotid artery disease (Circulation. 2006; 113:2363-2372).
  • Patient treatment, establishment of optimal medication for the disease

Cardiac rehabilitation (tertiary prevention). Tertiary prevention programs aim to improve the quality of life for people with heart and cardiovascular diseases by limiting complications and disabilities, reducing the severity and progression of disease, and providing rehabilitation (therapy to restore functionality and self-sufficiency). Unlike primary and secondary prevention, tertiary prevention involves actual treatment for the disease and is conducted primarily by health care practitioners.

The cardiovascular examination at Coral Medical Center includes:

  • Full anamnesis, background and medical history, physical examination (general inspection, taking the pulse, blood pressure, jugular venous pressure, palpation, auscultation for heart sounds variations)
  • Family history of heart and cardiovascular diseases
  • Assessing risk factors of patient

Tests:

  • ECG test at rest
  • 12-lead ECG cardiac stress test on treadmill
  • If required, 24 hours ABPM (Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring)
  • 24 hours Holter EKG
  • Echocardiography (ultrasound of the heart)
  • Pulse oximetry when required

In addition to patient treatment, our team of cardiologists offers preventive and rehabilitation services with the multidisciplinary collaboration of our in-house specialists to provide integrated team-based care for our patients. The services include cardiac screening using state-of the art equipment, assessment of health and risk profile with the aim to improve the patient's life style and sure early detection of disease.
