Our doctors offer a complete check which includes:
The patient’s medical and sporting history
Physical cardiovascular examination
Electrocardiogram (ECG) and basal spirometry
Ergospirometry or stress test with a cycle ergometer to measure your cardiorespiratory fitness. We will be able to detect potential health problems and establish your VO2 max (maximal oxygen intake), aerobic and anaerobic thresholds and the relation between your heart rate and power output. This information will enable us to assess your capacity for physical exercise, optimise your training and improve your performance so that you can achieve your goals.
