Research showed that IDPs about 65% of the athletes never have cardiac evaluation

About 65% of athletes who pass through the department of sports medicine ever performed cardiac examination. This is the conclusion of the survey Instituto Dante Pazzanese, state hospital cardiology referral.

The department conducts cardioesporte of Dante Pazzanese 3600 patients a year. "Most athletes are young and never felt a sign of cardiac disease, so I do not think you need to call your cardiologist," argues Nabil Ghorayeb, head of the department. He said the fact that an athlete does not go through more detailed cardiac monitoring can hide the risk of a fatal disease.

The survey also testified that around 8% of patients have high blood pressure, risk of myocardial infarction and cardiac arrhythmia. In athletes, the most common is the rate of high cholesterol, which can cause clogging of the arteries.

In the department of sports medicine, the main goal is to detect potential heart problems and prevent them. The athlete attended by the medical team goes through consultations and examinations - stress test, echocardiogram, electrocardiogram, cardiopulmonary evaluation and clinical testing.
