Core Tasks

The Department of Cardiology is a department of internal medicine/cardiology which receives adults with cardio-vascular diseases for admission as well as for outpatient examination and treatment. The main areas of specific interest at the Department of Cardiology are ischaemia, arrhythmia, heart failure and heart valve disorders. The Department of Cardiology is also involved in research and education.

 

The Department of Cardiology also takes care of highly specialised treatment of patients undergoing coronary angioplasty (PCI), patients with need for TAVI-treatment because of heart valve diseases and patients with a need for an radiofrequency ablation as well as an Implantable Converter Defibrillator- or pacemakerimplantation.

 

The Department of Cardiology has 65 beds in three wards, and a unit with eight daytime beds for outpatients who are examined and treated at The Cardiology Laboratory. The Cardiology Laboratory has six operating theatres for invasive treatment. The outpatient clinic is responsible for all non-invasive examinations and treatments.

 

The outpatient clinic is organized with the following specifikc clinics:

  • Congenital Heart Disease Clinic

  • Heart Failure Clinic

  • Atrial Fibrillation Clinic

  • Anticoagulation Clinic

  • Telemonitorering and control of patients with pacemakers and Implantable Converter Defibrillators.
