Functional diagnostics

Key targets of the department of functional diagnostics:

  • performance of investigation to access the physiological state of bodily organs and systems of healthy and ill patients (cardio-vascular, respiratory, nervous, urogenital systems).
  • the methods of functional diagnostics employ reasonable accuracy and objectivity of findings, and most importantly – provide the means for the detection of pathological process at early stages of a disease, (up to anatomic structural changes), prognostication, determination of efficiency of the administered therapy.
  • Investigations implemented at DFD, information for patients:

    • Electrocardiography (background, with supplementary leads, with pharmacological probes)
    • 24-hour Holter ECG monitoring (on 3 leads, on 12 leads, with the analysis of pacemaker’s operation, paired ECG and ABP investigation)
    • 24-hour ABP monitoring.
    • ECG with graduated exercises (bicycle ergometry, treadmill test)
    • 3-hour day-time EEG video monitoring with sleep deprivation
    • 5-hour day-time EEG video monitoring with sleep deprivation
    • 12-hour nigh-time EEG video monitoring
    • Rheoencephalography with rotating samples
    • Electroencephalography with provocation testing (photo-, acoustic stimulation, hyperventilation)
    • Respiratory function (spirometry) with pharmacological probes
    • Uroflowmetry with ultrasound investigation of residual urine volume
    • Electromyography (stimulating, needle)
    • Induced brain potentials: visual, auditory, somatosensory
    • Lifestyle prescription for 24-hour Holter ECG monitoring
    • Lifestyle prescription for 24-hour ABP monitoring
    • EEG video monitoring
    • Electroneuromyography
    • Outpatient night-time EEG monitoring
    • Pulseoxymetry
    • Upper and lower extremity capillaroscopy.
    • Polysomnography (PSG)
    • Dynamometry.
