Medical operations

The doctors of Oikoiatriki are equipped with a modern cardiograph to perform a cardiogram in your home, either because it is necessary to treat the patient’s condition, or because it was requested by the treating cardiologist.
The examination is simple and painless, with the placement of the appropriate electrodes on the patient’s body, followed by the analysis of the electrical activity of the heart, which is printed on paper.

The Holter monitor of heart rhythm records the patient’s electrocardiogram for 24 hours.
After being examined by your cardiologist, he places the Holter monitor at a fixed spot on you and then places the electrodes on your body.
The next day the device will be removed and connected to a computer where the cardiologist will assess the 24-hour recording and make a diagnosis.
