Radio Diospi Suyana

When the heart beats faster than it should


From diagnosis to therapy  

A heartbeat of 170 per minute at rest is neither normal nor healthy. What was going on in the patient? John Lentink with an ECG showed the cause. The atrium was beating too quickly and the pulse was transmitted to the ventricles. Now that we know this the appropriate medicine treatment can be started. For one week we tested at Diospi Suyana, in the ECG laboratory, a physical performance test and a long-term ECG.

The machines are brand new and John Lentink has the experience needed to properly operate them. Our general practitioners and internists are pleased with these new diagnostic possibilities.
