Cardiology Today: Partnership Medicine

Partnership-based medicine also means that we want to get to know you as a person in your respective life situation as well as possible - with your habits, wishes and requirements in life. To this end, we offer you a particularly pleasant, friendly and relaxed atmosphere at Cardiopraxis. Knowing what makes you "tick" also helps us to recognize and treat your cardiovascular complaints. This understanding is reflected in our comprehensive diagnostic spectrum, which is exceptional for an outpatient cardiology Praxis . We perform holistic circulatory measurement with the non-invasive Finapres® method most frequently in the world.

Frequently asked questions / F.A.Q.

The risk of cardiovascular disease, with its major complications like heart attack and stroke, has decreased encouragingly and significantly over the past 20 years. The reasons for this are as follows:

  • in healthy people we recognize the risk early and can prevent complications in the long term
  • in cardiovascular diseases, differentiated diagnostics enable us to provide individualized therapy
  • people are empowered by the Internet. They match information with medical specialists and hence influence their health more independently at an earlier stage

Specialists in cardiology, internal medicine, angiology, intensive care medicine

  • Experience. Many years of training at university hospitals including senior medical practice.
  • Differentiated diagnostics. Trend-setting in the investigation of cardiovascular diseases
  • Unique selling points. Differentiated non-invasive circulatory diagnostics with measurement of blood pressure AND blood flow as a setting feature (Finapres systemⓇ, >3,000 measurements per year).
  • Empowerment. Understandable conversations so that you can promote your health as independently as possible. You will learn how to evaluate measurements via modern smartphone gadgets for self-measurement (heart rhythm analysis with the 1-channel ECG, apnea-hypopnea index with the sleep analysis, VO2max for exercise analysis).
  • Individual therapy. Treatment with as few drugs as possible, preferably none at all (and thus few or mostly no side effects).
  • Modern performance diagnostics. Optimize your training with the results of spiroergometry
  • Partnership approach. Shaping your health as a long-term project together at eye level
  • Continuing Education. Regular medical and organizational continuing education of non-medical and medical staff.
  • Team.... and simply a friendly group of people that wants to help you
  • Chest pressure (angina pectoris)
  • Shortness of breath
  • Water retention in the legs (leg edema)
  • Heart stumble
  • Drowsiness, dizziness
  • Fainting spells
  • Decrease in performance

Prevention of hypertension, myocardial infarction, heart failure, stroke

  • Coronary artery disease (CAD)
  • Cardiac arrhythmias
  • Heart failure (cardiac insufficiency)
  • Heart muscle inflammation (myocarditis)
  • Heart valve disease
  • High blood pressure (arterial hypertension)
  • Low blood pressure (arterial hypotension)
  • Narrowing of the leg and neck arteries (peripheral arterial occlusive disease)
  • Risk of cardiovascular disease in the future

Specialists in hypertension, cardiac arrhythmias, coronary artery disease, heart failure and valvular heart disease

  • Like all other cardiologists, we use basic ECG, exercise ECG, echocardiography, long-term ECG and pacemaker interrogation.

    In addition, we use other methods for scientific holistic diagnostics and therapy, for example:

    • Circulatory examination. Circulation measurement, arteriography with pulse wave analysis
    • Vegetative nervous system. Analysis heart rate variability, baroreflex sensitivity.
    • Performance diagnostics. Spiroergometry
    • Lung examination. Lung volume, airway, lung power, transcutaneous oxygen and carbon dioxide.
    • Arterial examination. Duplex sonography of the neck arteries and the pelvic-leg arteries
    • Laboratory tests. Gene polymorphisms Neurotransmitter metabolism (dopamine, norepinephrine, epinephrine, glutamate, estrogen).
    • Cardiac examination. Stress echocardiography, determination of suction force and pumping force, circulation-optimized setting of pacemaker systems, vector cardiography, cardiac catheterization with stent if required.

With the help of this modern forward-looking diagnostics, we can classify your symptoms in a more differentiated way. Consequently, we are able to clearly identify the causes. If you have high blood pressure or are taking medication, for example, we also take into account the interaction between the regulation of the blood pressure control circuit and the body temperature control circuit.

Only a differentiated diagnosis enables an individual therapy and thus a solution of your health problems and thus long-term health.
