Internal Medicine

The specialty of internal medicine covers a wide range of conditions affecting the internal organs of the body. Internists are specially trained to solve diagnostic problems in adult patients and offer a solution to complex conditions involving many individual organs and common diseases.

To come up with sometimes complex diagnosis our internist can send patients to supplementary specialists’ examinations. Based on the results of these examinations the internist makes a treatment plan and order control visits for the patient. Our internal medicine physicians apply scientific knowledge, clinical expertise and holistic approach to the right diagnosis and most efficient  treatment of adult patients  through whole spectrum from health to complex illness. Both general internist and internists by specialty, such as cardiologistnephrologistendocrinologist or gastroenterologist consultations are available at our clinic.

Spirometry
Spirometry (meaning the measuring of breath) is the most common of the pulmonary function tests (PFTs), measuring lung function, specifically the amount (volume) and/or speed (flow) of air that can be inhaled and exhaled. Spirometry is an important tool used for generating pneumotachographs, which are helpful in assessing conditions such as asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis, and COPD.
Bone density test - ODM
Bone density, or the mineral content of bone, is measured with a device called the osteodensitometer (ODM). The test is suitable for determining if you have osteoporosis, or if you are currently developing it.
ABPM - Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (24h)
Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is a non-invasive method of obtaining blood pressure readings over a 24-hour period, whilst the patient is in their own environment, representing a true reflection of their blood pressure. Many studies have now confirmed that blood pressure measured over a 24-hour period is superior to clinic blood pressure in predicting future cardiovascular events and target organ damage.
ECG (Resting)

The electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) is a diagnostic tool that is routinely used to assess the electrical and muscular functions of the heart. While it is a relatively simple test to perform, the interpretation of the ECG tracing requires significant amounts of training. Numerous textbooks are devoted to the subject. The heart is a two stage electrical pump and the heart's electrical activity can be measured by electrodes placed on the skin. The electrocardiogram can measure the rate and rhythm of the heartbeat, as well as provide indirect evidence of blood flow to the heart muscle. A standardized system has been developed for the electrode placement for a routine ECG. Ten electrodes are needed to produce 12 electrical views of the heart. An electrode lead, or patch, is placed on each arm and leg and six are placed across the chest wall. The signals received from each electrode are recorded. The printed view of these recordings is the electrocardiogram. By comparison, a heart monitor requires only three electrode leads – one each on the right arm, left arm, and left chest. It only measures the rate and rhythm of the heartbeat. This kind of monitoring does not constitute a complete ECG.
