Secondary professional opinion

Optional service connected to our cardiology service

While providing the healthcare services for the patients there are health problems frequently arising, which cannot be cured by each healthcare service provider or – in the lack of sufficient experience and professional knowledge - any doctoral team. Such situations result in additional time and financing spent, both for the patient (accommodation, travelling and other additional expenses) and the health care investor (repeated hospital and ambulant healthcare).

However, majority of special healthcare forms and interventions are already available in Hungary, along with the required appropriate material and personal conditions. Still, due to the information flow problems existing in healthcare, they are not known by the public, thus the patients depend on the personal connections of their doctors, relatives and acquaintances.

It is the field of medical sciences dealing with diabetes.
Diabetes is a carbohydrate metabolic disturbance: the sugar passed into the body and not used fills the tissues; the symptom of the disease is the chronic increase in blood sugar level.
In majority of the diseases, particularly in respect of cardiovascular problems, there is the imbalanced carbohydrate metabolism in the background. The abnormally functioning glycemic damages the arteries, the heart, the kidney, the brain, the eyes, and the skin. The consequences are infarctus, high blood pressure, apoplexy, arteriosclerosis, extremital ulcer, loss of vision or renal insufficiency.

The IMS Ltd. undertakes:

screening and treating diabetes
adjustment or modification of therapy (training, sport, diet, medication)
diagnosis of complications
szövődmények kezelését

The healthy sugar balance can by maintained by sufficient sport and the unbalanced system can be re-balanced, in many cases even without medication.

Both options are available on the basis of a family doctor’s order supported by a specialist’s opinion.

Digital imaging diagnostics (X-ray, mammography, ultrasound)

The diagnostic examination is suitable for representing the cancer of the breasts. It shows both the benign and malignant diseases of the breasts or may indirectly refer to their presence. Mammography, the X-ray record of the breasts, is made by different physical parameters and photo technique than the traditional x-ray. For this reason, it is suitable for showing the subtle structural differences of the soft parts.

During the examination the breast is put on an x-ray plate. Then the assistant presses and flattens the organ with another plate. Two x-ray pictures are made on both breasts, respectively. Having made the x-ray pictures you should be waiting. The x-ray films will be developed through the developing system and systemized. Precise administrative work guarantees that the x-ray films of each patient will be included to her file.

The films are reviewed by the rhadiologist who will also read the documents connected to your disease and writes her/his opinion. The findings will include all the structural divergence different from the normal, the shape, size and precise location of the changes. The doctor will summarize in her/his opinion whether the changes seen raise the suspect of malignancy. If imaging diagnostic examinations justify it, the doctor may suggest other examinations (generally ultrasound examination of the breasts), supplementary sampling or send the patient for an examination of other modality.

Digital imaging diagnostics examinations:

Ultrasound examinations:
Mamma (I. sz Egészségügyi Intézet)
Carotis doppler (ultrasound examination of carotid arteries)

Laboratory diagnostics

The task of clinical laboratories is to provide simple and clear reply for the questions raised by the doctors and clinicians in relation with the patient’s condition and treatment. Though the replies given by the laboratories are often very simple (in many cases only a numeric value with the connected unit of measure and reference range), the interpretation in majority of the cases requires quite complex professional knowledge.

Biological samples of the laboratory generally come from blood, urine, sputum or faeces. Some of the examinations require special preparations, such as eg. fasting test when taking blood, the first morning urine or 24 hours collected urine for the urine test, and 3 days diet before testing the faeces in order to show blood in faeces.

The process of drawing blood

Chosing the place of pinprick, possibly the cubital fossa of the arm; if that is impossible then the back of hand
Phases of the process: palpation of the vein, developing venous congestion with tourniquet, disinfecting the place of pinprick, puncturing the vein.
Some people have thinner or hardly palpable veins, or due to the repeated punctures the vein becomes scarring or hardening. In such cases it is more difficult to draw blood, and several punctures might be needed to draw blood successfully.
However, if you experience any swelling, hematoma or pain after the intervention, put ice or cold water poultices on the surface and protect the affected limb.

Giving urine sample

Spontaneous urine: for the purposes of qualitative or semi-quantitative urine tests, the best is the night urine passed in the morning, because it is generally more concentrated that the day urine. Tests should be implemented as soon as possible. The urinary sediment should be analysed within 2-3 hours.
Collected urine: for the purposes of quantitavie tests, the urine should be completely collected for a certain period of time. At the beginning of the collection period of time, the patient should void her/his bladder. This urine is poured then we finish collecting the urine for the given period of time with patient’s urination. Either the complete urine is taken into the lab or the density is precisely measured, and a representative density from the thoroughly mixed sample is forwarded, provideing the lab with the information on the complete urine quantity. The period of time for collecting the urine depends on the nature of the test.

Motion rehabilitation

The typical symptoms of post-menopausal osteoporosis are: back and lumbar pain caused by the vertebral press, vertebral fractures, wrist and hip fractures. The body and the back bent, the chest sinks and the height lowers. Symptoms of the elderly osteoporosis can be similar. It often appears without preceeding symptoms, in the form of fracture of neck of femur, wrist fracture or femoral neck fracture or vertebral fracture. It affects both genders. The continuous loss of bone mass is almost on the same level both for women and men above the age of 65.

Exercise therapy has a key role amongst treatments which can moderate the loss of bone mass. Regular sporting and curative gymnastics can significantly decrease the frequency of femoral neck fracture of elderly people, but also improves the general well-being, and the patient’s overall life improves a lot.

Medium strong load does not jeopardize the bones, but makes good for both breathing and circulation. Women only at the age of menopausa more physical load is required to keep or even increase the mineral mass of the vertebra.

Exercise therapy decreases the pain, prevents or restores the chronic change of the form of the spine, improves posture, makes people more active. Moreover, it also improves the sense of balance, which is very important for elderly people. A program is developed by the excercise expert which later should be made regularly at home individually. Additionally, electrical treatment, ice packs and massages are used to tranquillize pain and muscle pain.

This process for women entering the menopausa is a result of decreasing women’s sex hormonoes (oestrogen) production, as sex hormones also participate in the hormonal regulation of the osseous metabolism. To decrease the destruction of the bone mass hormone replacement, intake of calcium, calcitonin therapy are applied, supplemented by physiotherapy.
