Measuring and examining vital functionsKeywords:
We perform measurements and examinations of vital signs at the clinical physiology units at our various hospitals.
Physiological measurements are for examining a person’s vital functions, how they are regulated and what abnormalities there may be. Clinical physiology involves performing a variety of measurements, brief examinations and long-term registrations.
Our examinations allow us to study common chronic diseases such as asthma and coronary disease. Measurements and examinations of vital functions are also used for diagnosing and monitoring many less common disorders and for evaluating the efficacy of their treatment.
Our examinations include:
- cardiac examinations,
- stress tests,
- peripheral circulation examinations,
- respiratory physiology examinations and
- digestive tract examinations.
Not all of the listed examinations are performed in all units.
