LABORATORY DIAGNOSTICS -DETECTION OF
DISEASE, PROGRESSION AND THERAPY CONTROL
Early detection of cardiovascular diseases or heart failure is important in order to be able to take countermeasures in time. Reliable and sensitive biomarkers in the blood support rapid and reliable diagnosis. For example, a heart attack can be detected or ruled out in the first few hours after the onset of suspicious chest pain. At Esplanade Cardiovascular Medicine, laboratory diagnostics support our physicians in finding a diagnosis and managing therapy. With the laboratory results, we can precisely classify diseases into stages, monitor the course of the disease and the success of therapy, and start a functioning prevention program.
We perform the following laboratory tests (e.g. blood gas analysis):
- Small and large blood count
- Liver and kidney values
- Risk profile (e.g. blood lipids)
- Inflammation parameters
- Thyroid parameters
- Vitamin D as a self-pay service
The laboratory values for emergency examinations such as cardiac enzymes ( CPK ), troponin test, blood sugar, amylase and blood count as well as urine tests are available within a very short time and treatment can be initiated as quickly as possible.
