Clinical Overview and Systematic Preventive Examinations in Cardiology
The cardiologic examination begins with the recording of ECG and continues with taking of detailed patient history of previous illnesses, family illnesses and detailed description of the condition that brought the patient to the examination.
Additionally, a list of chronic illnesses from which the patient is suffering and what medication is he taking are noted.
After a detailed analysis of the patient history a cardiological - internistic examination follows, using all the standard methods (inspection, auscultation, palpation and percussion).
When the “working diagnosis” is defined, the need for additional tests is defined, in order to get the accurate "final diagnosis" as soon as possible.
