Physical exercise and sports can lead to high cardiac strains in elite athletes, recreational athletes and patients. Therefore, sports cardiology addresses questions on acute and chronic cardiovascular adaptations and risks in athletes and patients, and sports cardiological examinations are performed to detect cardiovascular abnormalities or pathologies to reduce their cardiovascular risk during physical exercise, training and competition.
Athletes and patients can be examined at the Institution's outpatient clinic. Consultations can be arranged by contacting our secretary’s office.
