24-hour pressure recorder: indirectly measures pressure in large arteries. Usually, pressure is measured in the brachial artery. When measuring blood pressure, systolic and diastolic pressure are distinguished. According to the guidelines of the European Society of Cardiology, values above 140 mmHg for systolic pressure and 90 mmHg for diastolic pressure allow to diagnose hypertension. We distinguish between hypertension that affects only systolic, diastolic, or both. Based on these results, a specialist cardiologist may administer appropriate pharmacological treatment and recommend lifestyle and diet changes to stabilize blood pressure. The “optimal” blood pressure is considered to be 120/80 mmHg. In the event of significantly increased pressure, it can occur heart attack, stroke or other life-threatening complications. It is recommended to check blood pressure at home regularly and to perform a pressure recorder test several months apart. The test result is prepared by a technician – the cardiologist receives its full description and statistics of measurement irregularities.
In urgent and emergency cases, or in cases requiring immediate consultation, in order to meet the expectations of our patients, we provide the opportunity to arrange the so-called express consultation.
Express consultation is a consultation outside the consultation dates specified in the calendar, falling on the next possible additional date specified by the doctor, based on availability confirmed by the registration staff.
The number of available express consultations is limited, reserved only for urgent cases and arranged at the patient's request. In cases of emergency, urgency or requiring immediate consultation, we encourage you to use this option.
