More details For athletes

A resting and exercise ECG should be prepared in order to map birth defects or acquired stimulation as well as stimulus generating or stimulus conduction disorders, electrophysiological abnormalities. In the case of athletes, it is especially worth taking seriously the reguler examinations and monitoring, as exercise ECGs are not necessarily part of general sports medicine practice, without such examinations many differences may remain hidden.

During the resting ECG, we cannot get a complete picture of the blood supply to the heart, the blood and oxygen supply of the heart muscle, and consequently the functioning of the heart under exercise.

During exercise, the heart valves must also work under other conditions, so the exercise ECG can provide a more accurate picture of how they work. Various conduction disturbances occur during exercise. This device can help you recognize episodic symptoms, which is usually only possible under constant supervision, preferably without restricting daily living. During a complex cardiological monitoring, in addition to the resting ECG under load conditions, the athlete's ECG prepared during the intensive training program can provide a comprehensive picture and guidance for the development of the athlete's performance. Of course, if necessary, additional tests can provide complete information about the condition of the heart, which can be performed in the Cardio Controll Laboratory set up for this purpose, or in the specialist clinic at our partners.

Only in the possession of these test results can we rule out most of the cardiovascular changes that would endanger the athlete's life, and in the knowledge of which his development and form timing can be optimally realized under controlled conditions. Thereafter, if necessary, all precautions can be taken in time to prevent sudden cardiac death.

When discovered in time, diseases can be cured, or they can be treated with medication or surgery and complications can be prevented. If necessary, the instrumental condition of immediate resuscitation can be ensured by implanting life-saving instruments (pacemaker, defibrillator) in the event of cardiac arrest, and the dangerous process can be stopped almost unnoticed.

 

The ECG belt may also be suitable for indicating performance enhancers and regular drugs, or wrong dosage of the medicine. The biggest advantage of the device is that it can detect asymptomatic problems, but of course it cannot detect events in all regions of the heart.
