Gastrointestinal tract

Gastrointestinal tract

Determining the patient’s medical history (anamnesis) is essential for narrowing down the ailments and focusing on a diagnosis. Current symptoms frequency and location of occurrence, alleviating/worsening factors and accompanying complaints are all important pointers for a diagnosis.

Cardiovascular vessels

Cardiovascular vessels

Thanks to ECG devices, heart rate and heart rhythm can be determined and electrical activity in the atria and ventricles can be monitored.

Laboratory Tests

Laboratory Tests

  • Checkups
  • Blood Glucose Test
  • Diabetes tests and checkups
  • Blood count tests
  • Cholesterol
  • Liver and Kidney function tests
  • Electrolytes
  • Blood clot monitoring
  • Urinanalysis
  • Pre-operative tests

Lungs

Lungs

The physical examination is carried out in an upright or lying position with a bare torso. In the case of lung disease in particular, oxygen saturation is measured on the ear or finger using a method called pulse oximetry. Alternatively blood gas analysis can be carried out using a blood sample from an artery e.g. wrist or groin area.

In addition, it is very important to perform an examination to detect possible pathogens and cells in sputum.

Preventive tests

Preventive tests

The aim of the preventive test is the early diagnosis of common diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes and support for a health-promoting change in lifestyle. Preventive medical checkups combined with tried-and-true parameters with new findings of lifestyle medicine

Special examination

Diabetes I/II

Diabetes I/II

Diabetes is a very severe disease which is often goes undetected and is underestimated in general. Have your blood sugar level checked regularly!

Preoperative tests

Preoperative tests

The preoperative examination is performed before any surgical procedure to estimate and reduce possible surgery or anaesthetic risks. A laboratory test, an ECG and possibly a lung x-ray, as well as a clinical examination are carried out.

In some cases, if necessary, ultrasound, echocardiography, pulmonary function tests and / or other specialized examinations will be performed.

Infusion

Serum

Next to fluid therapy infusions are given if oral pain relievers fail to provide enough effect, cause stomach discomfort or if the patient has a disease in the gastrointestinal tract. Mixed infusions are sometimes administered with vitamin supplements.

Postoperative follow up
