M.A.P.A. or Holter of arterial blood pressure of 24 hours:

Ambulatory monitoring of arterial tension.


Effort test with analysis of respiratory gas

It allows the assessment of cardiac activity in order to discard an affectation of the heart arteries as well as arrhythmia during exercise and from the sports point to provide the parameters to optimize performance individually by means of oxygen consumption and the aerobic and anaerobic thresholds in addition to the recommendations to reach the objectives.


Sports Holter

To assess arrhythmias or related symptoms, using a device with latest generation sensors, versatile, without wires, similar to a shirt.


Cardiac Strain or Cardiac Deformation Study:

Analysis of cardiac muscle function from cardiac muscle fiber, using specific echocardiographic software, specifically for clinical decision making in coronary heart disease, valvular heart disease, cardiotoxicity by treatment with chemotherapy and heart disease.
