Cardiology is the specialty for prevention, diagnostics, and treatment of the disease of the heart and circulatory system. The diseases of the heart and circulatory system pose a severe public health problem worldwide, especially coronary sclerosis and high blood pressure (hypertonia) disease. It is enough to mention the fact that in Hungary two third of the hypertonic patients (around 1 million people) have blood pressure over 140/90 mmHg, because of either they do not know about their disease or their current treatment is inefficient. In the developed and developing countries, the above-mentioned diseases are the most common cause of death among adults. During the past decades, heart and circulatory diseases have become the cause of death in over half of the cases in Hungary. In these type of diseases, risk factors, such as coronary disease in a family member, smoking, high blood cholesterol level or high blood pressure, are significant. Diabetes is also a risk factor for circulatory diseases. The risk of heart diseases increases with age both in male and female patients. The risk is higher in males until female patients reach the menopause. At that time, the risk among women become equal as among men. In the background of the coronary and high blood pressure diseases, there are lifestyle risk factors. In Hungary, the number of smokers in the middle-aged adult population is approximately 1.5 million men and 1 million women. Over 50% of smokers smoke more than 20 cigarettes a day. In middle-aged population, more than 200,000 people are alcoholic. Almost half of the people do not care about what and how they eat. More than a third of the population is obese. In contrast to this, only less than a quarter of the population exercise regularly.


  • Arteriosclerosis
The cause of the arteriosclerosis is the increased long-term cholesterol intake. The unused cholesterol in the blood accumulates in the wall of the arteries making them thick and rigid. Arteriosclerosis is characterised by the presence of thickened plaques in the walls of the medium-sized and large arteries (atheromas) which can cause reduced blood flow or total occlusion of the vessel. This progress may start even at younger ages, but symptoms occur usually at middle or older age. This disease affects everyone in some form, especially in the developed countries, where it is among the leading causes of death. In its background can be genetical factors, but also stress, unhealthy diet, sedentary lifestyle, obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, smoking and drug consumption can accelerate its progress.


  • Coronary sclerosis
In coronary sclerosis, the oxygen- and nutrient-supplying arteries of the heart become stenotised (narrowed) due to arteriosclerosis, and thereby the heart's oxygen supply is reduced. The situation becomes severe especially during strain or effort when the load on the heart muscle increases. Its most prominent symptom is a circulatory anomaly, called angina, which is caused by the oxygen deficiency of the heart muscle, as due to the poor perfusion, the oxygen supply to the heart muscle is reduced. During the anginal state, the patient feels pressure on the chest, and tightness and pain may be felt in the central part of the chest wall, which may also spread to the arms, to the neck, to the face, to the back or even to the abdomen.


  • High Blood Pressure Disease (Hypertension)
High blood pressure (hypertension) is a condition when the pressure on the arterial wall exceeds the normal value. The circulatory system is a closed system, and if the blood vessels do not dilate sufficiently, and let the blood to reach the parts of the body, the heart must pump stronger to move the volume of blood through the narrowed vessels, so consequently the blood pressure increases. Increased blood pressure puts a load onto the heart, damages the vessel wall and threatens with severe consequences as myocardial infarction, stroke, heart failure, peripheral vessel disease (stenosis) or renal failure.


When should I contact a cardiologist?

  • Unexplained breathlessness, difficulty breathing
  • Transient loss of consciousness
  • Unexplained tiredness, fatigue, loss of appetite
  • Swelling of the ankles
  • Diagnosed heart disease (valvular problem, coronary disease, pacemaker)
  • If your first-degree relative had a heart disease at a younger age
  • Pressure and tightness of the chest, behind the sternum, which may spread to the left shoulder and arm
  • Palpitation, high pulse rate
  • Unhealthy lifestyle, significant overweight
  • If you are asymptomatic, for screening and for preventive reasons


What happens during the cardiologist's visit?

During the cardiologist's visit, your history, past diseases, medicines taken and lifestyle are recorded, and a physical examination is performed. Auscultation, percussion, and blood pressure measurement are followed by additional examinations required for the establishment of the diagnosis, such as resting and stress ECG and HOLTER, blood pressure monitor, echocardiography or additional laboratory tests. Finally, based on these findings, our cardiologist specialist performs a report, gives you advice, prescribes a medical treatment and refers you to further tests if required.


What type of examinations are performed for the detection and treatment of the heart and circulatory system diseases?

  • Complex heart and circulatory system examination
  • Hypertension outpatient care: investigation of the high blood pressure disease, setting up a medical treatment and lifestyle advice.
  • Chest pain outpatient care: investigation of the cause of chest pain, setting up a medical treatment and infarction prevention
  • Arrhythmia outpatient care: from the feeling of arrhythmia to severe arrhythmias
  • Vessel outpatient care: investigation of stenotic vessels, including the lower limb, the brain vessels, the abdominal arteries, dilatation infusion treatment for improving the walking distance.
  • Stroke prevention, investigation, and treatment
  • Dizziness complaints investigation and treatment
  • Cardiologic status evaluation prior to begin a competitive sport, for screening for hereditary abnormalities


What type of cardiologic diagnostic examinations are performed?

The rhythmic heart contractions are triggered by electrical impulses. The consecutive electric discharge and recharge cycles can be visualised by ECG. It is a simple and painless examination without any adverse effects, which reveals a lot about the state of the heart. During the conventional, resting ECG, the technician fixes electrodes onto your chest and limbs while you are lying on the examination table. The ECG device then registrates the electrical activity of the heart for one or two minutes. If the specialist suspects a disease which symptoms can be detected only by physical provocation, then he or she refers you to a stress ECG examination. After fixing the electrodes you will be asked to do intensive exercise on an exercise bike, thereby increasing the blood requirement of the heart muscle. If an existing stenosis is present in the coronary vessels supplying the heart muscles, then the heart does not get enough blood and the electrical signs change. Based on the ECG curve, the specialist can confirm the coronary stenosis and he or she can determine whether further examinations are required nor not.


Heart function may vary even hourly. The 24 hours ECG (Holter) testing is performed by a mobile device to collect information on the heart's activity during daily routine activities through a longer period. During this continuous control, the device can capture such abnormalities which occur only in certain situations or certain parts of the day. The Holter ECG testing is used for the exact diagnosis of arrhythmias, for the control of the set medical treatment or for follow-up during post-infarction period.


The blood pressure value is continuously changing during the day: it is affected by the part of the day, stress, meals and exercise. Therefore, in the case of certain problems, it is worth to follow it during whole day with a mobile device. It is important, that the given period be an average one in all aspects, it should not be a rest day and you should not change your medical treatment. At the start of the examination, a blood pressure measuring cuff is fixed on your arm and is connected to a mobile phone sized device. Afterwards you are doing your daily routine, but you keep an event log and record every event which may be related to the blood pressure, such as malaise, dizziness, stressful situation, forceful exercise etc. The settings of the blood pressure monitoring device are individual, typically it measures the blood pressure in every 15 minutes during the day and in every 30 minutes during the night. The device records the 24 hours day and night data, calculates a mean value, and allows the doctor to download them to the PC, and evaluate them along with the event log information.


Echocardiography is an ultrasound imaging procedure during which cine files are generating about the heart, so the chambers, their walls, the valves and the pericardium can be evaluated. It is a painless examination, free of any adverse effects. It can be used e.g for the detection of post-infarction wall motion abnormalities, scar formation, valvular diseases, abnormal blood flow between the heart chambers, pericardial effusion or an atrial or ventricular thrombus. You do not have to be prepared for the examination. You are lying half-naked on the examination table, and the specialist applies a bit of ultrasound gel onto the chest and then starts to scan with the transducer. The generated cine files can be frozen on the monitor, measurements can be performed on them or they can also be printed and the data can be saved.



The carotid ultrasound examination is used for the evaluation of the arteries directed to the brain. It is a painless method for the detection of the state, patency, possible occlusion or stenosis of the vessels.


Doppler echo examination is one of the best methods for the assessment of the status of the vessels. It provides information not only about the degree of the damage but also about the vessels' perfusion and blood flow. It is painless and can be performed without any special preparation. It is useful not only for the determination of the degree of the stenosis but also for the observation of the venous valves and for the establishment of the diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis.



At MeDoc Health Center we have the state of the art, Philips Affiniti 70 ultrasound device optimised for cardiological use, which is one of the top models of its category.

How to prepare for the examination?

Please bring your prior medical reports with you and prepare a list of your medicines taken. Please do not skip any of your medication on the day of the examination! If you come only for a cardiology visit, you can eat before the examination. If you come to any other (scheduled) ultrasound examination as well, then please arrive with an empty stomach and with a full bladder.
