As part of the blood test by the laboratory, various tests are then carried out and the different laboratory values (blood values) are determined. In addition to a blood test, other body fluids such as urine, secretions, stool, etc. can also be examined. A blood test is then useful to know about your own health. Nevertheless, there are also situations in which precise knowledge of one’s own blood values is particularly important.
Which values are determined by the laboratory:
It records heart rate and heart rhythm. (how often the heart beats per minute and how regularly) Certain cardiovascular diseases such as coronary heart disease (heart attack, arrhythmias or narrowing of the coronary arteries) can be determined with this examination and statements can be made about the individual physical fitness of the patient.
After diagnosis, optimal treatment is recommended:
The internist carries out many treatments himself or, if necessary, refers the patient to the appropriate specialist practice. The care of heart patients or patients who have already had an operation is the concern of the internist, including the care of patients with high blood pressure, cardiac arrhythmias or circulatory disorders.
