Hospital Clínica Benidorm launches the “One Stop Shop Cardio”, the cardiology risk prevention check-up that takes place all in one morning
The ICA (Instituto Cardiológico de Alicante) of HCB has designed this simple circuit of cardiology tests with the aim of facilitating periodic check-ups for patients, in many cases postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This has generated many serious episodes in cardiac patients, both chronic and new, increasing urgent Hemodynamic interventions in our hospital.
The Cardiovascular Risk Unit of Hospital Clínica Benidorm has designed the “One Stop Shop Cardio”, a complete check-up that requires an appointment to perform the test circuit all in one morning and receive the results on the same day from your Cardiologist. The check consists of:
- Complete analytics
- Consultation with the Cardiologist
- Anamnesis (medical history)
- Physical Exploration
- Stress Test
- Delivery of results and evaluation from the Cardiologist
Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death in most European countries; especially heart attacks and cerebral strokes. The slow obstruction of the arteries is the main cause of cardiac pathologies and it is a silent process that, thanks to the correct prevention, could be detected in time.
The Hemodynamic and Interventional Cardiology Service of Hospital Clínica Benidorm reminds us of some figures to understand the importance of prevention and periodic medical and cardiology reviews. “The hospital mortality figures (deaths recorded in hospitals) of myocardial infarction in Spain are below 5%; between 3 and 4% caused by angina pectoris. These are relatively low figures, fundamentally, thanks to the enormous work of cardiovascular risk prevention that has been carried out in recent years and the significant improvement in current treatments. ”
All these data are sufficient reasons to understand that the best way to care for the heart is with prevention. Check prices and availability to carry out the “One Stop Shop Cardio” or the more specific cardiology check-ups that HCB offers through its Check-up Service.
