General medicine

The General Medicine Unit develops a clinical project oriented to cardiovascular diseases with higher epidemiological impact and to acute cardiac decompensation or exacerbation of chronic heart failure, but it is also oriented to situations such as atrial fibrillation tachyarrhythmia and arterial hypertension of difficult to control.

Symptoms such as chest pains of dubious nature, breathlessness, palpitation, fainting are also evaluated and treated.

Decompensated diabetes and nutritional disorders (obesity in particular) are also treated.

This unit operates in an integrated way, not only with Cardiovascular Rehabilitation, but also with the other disciplines present in our Institute.

In addition, our main goal are the patient needs, achieved by ensuring coordination between outpatient and hospitalization activities, but also by strengthening the relationships between its Specialists and Primary Care Physicians in the context of the care network. In order to improve the quality of life of patients while reducing the number and duration of hospitalizations, we optimize the treatment of patients, we ensure monitoring over time and we enable timely clinical interventions to avoid aggravation of the disease.
