Clinical Laboratory

Clinical Laboratory We have a high level of complexity which underpins, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all healthcare services Clinic, Outpatient, hospital, surgical, Doctors, etc.

The laboratory provides services in the areas of Hematology, Coagulation, Arterial Gases, Microbiology, Microscopy, Parasitology, Clinical Chemistry and Urinalysis.

Clinical Laboratory322 7090 ext. 4159 -4160From Monday to Friday 6.30 a.m. a 4:30 p.m. Saturdays 7:00 a 11:00 a.m.


It is a fundamental diagnostic test that provides a moving picture of the heart. Ultrasonically, echocardiography provides information on how, the size and strength of heart, motion and wall thickness and operation of its valves.

Pediatric Echocardiography

In the service of pediatric echocardiography diagnostic tests are performed in congenital and acquired highly qualified staff and latest technology heart disease in a friendly ambience and great warmth.

Schedule: 7:00 a.m. a 5:00 p.m.

Phone dating: (574) 445 23 00

Adult Echocardiography

The service adult echocardiography has high technology for noninvasive diagnosis cardiovascular. Practice transthoracic echocardiography, transesophageal echocardiography with exercise stress echocardiography, pharmacological stress echocardiography and intraoperative echocardiography.

Schedule: 7:00 a.m. a 5:00 p.m.

Phone dating: (574) 445 23 00

Stress Testing

The stress test is a test used to evaluate the cardiovascular response to physical activity, which can provide useful diagnostic information, prognosis and management of patients with coronary heart disease or other cardiovascular diseases; further, determines the functional capacity and provides basic information for exercise prescription.

It is a noninvasive diagnostic method that is done exercising on a treadmill or on a bicycle, connected to an electrocardiographic monitor, which allows to observe dynamic changes in the electrocardiogram. In our service the test is done using treadmill.

Peripheral Vascular Laboratory

The peripheral vascular lab is a support service for the diagnosis of diseases of the peripheral circulatory system which comprises the movement that is not the heart or brain, but that is part of the system.

Tests conducted to assess, not only the function, but artery anatomy, veins and lymphatics in the head, abdomen and upper and lower extremities.

Referral to this service is indicated for the diagnosis of peripheral vascular disease, as well as for screening in patients with cardiovascular disease and monitoring procedures of surgical revascularization or percutaneous, using plethysmography and arterial vascular ultrasound Doppler tool: In recent 4 years there have been more than 8.000 annual studies.

Valve Laboratory and Tissue Bank

Pioneer in the country in tissue processing, created in 1968 a felt need in acquiring human cardiac tissues. In the year 2008 INVIMA certified it in Good Practice for Tissue Banks and Marrow in compliance with resolution 005108 of 2005.

Currently has the appropriate technology to process different cardiovascular tissues of human origin are cryopreserved aortic and pulmonary homograft and animal, patches of bovine pericardium for the surgical management of patients.

• Types of studies: venous or arterial duplex upper and lower extremities and neck. • Pletismografía arterial. • arterial plethysmography maneuvers of thoracic outlet. • Doppler transcraneano. • Color Doppler aortic, renal arteries, iliac, mesentéricas, inter.

Electrophysiology Service

The VID Cardio Clinic has a highly specialized service electrophysiology. It consists of three specialists in electrophysiology, two of them for the adult patient and one for the patient cardiopediátrico (second in the country with this specialty). All highly qualified and experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of heart rhythm disorders and all its complications.

Patients are seen on several fronts:

• Outpatient specialized, the largest volume in the city, social insurance for patients (EPS) and voluntary (Prepaid medicine and Policies). There it is done well, review and reprogramming (in if necessary) devices (pacemaker, etc.) previously implanted.

• Interventional procedures in the hemodynamics laboratory: implant devices such as pacemakers, cardiodesfibriladores, cardiorresincronizadores, all equipped with the latest technology available in the world, as the possibility of remote monitoring, support nuclear magnetic resonance, etc. This allows greater safety and comfort for the patient.

We also have the possibility of implanting monitoring devices arrhythmias medium and long term (Event Monitor), which can last up to three months and implanted subcutaneously (under the skin) or a special monitoring patch, It is allowing greater mobility and tranquility for patients. Additionally it has high-tech equipment (Carto y Ensite) for mapping and ablation of arrhythmias, i.e., detection and treatment of heart rhythm disorders. This treatment can be performed under heat (radiofrequency) or cold (cryoablation), depending on the location of the damage to the heart and the characteristics of each patient, always ensuring greater security and minimizing procedure time and the risk of complications.

Hemodynamics service has 4 angiograms next generation, including a biplane (It works with two tubes rather than one, as usual), allowing shorter exposure time to radiation and the realization of more complex cases.

• Holter monitoring: It involves placing patches connected to a device that measures the frequency of arrhythmias in patients, up to a month, if necessary. They are played by the team of electrophysiologists, including studies in children.

• Tilt table test (Tilt Test): is used to study the changes that occur in blood pressure and heart rate during prolonged standing position. Indicated, fundamentally, for the study of patients with fainting (syncope), with sense of impending faint but present, and the study of other disorders of the autonomic nervous system. permanently monitored by the electrophysiologist doctor.

Schedule: 7:00 a.m. a 5:00 p.m.

An electrocardiogram is a simple and quick procedure that records the electrical activity of the heart. It is used to measure the rate and regularity of heartbeats, and the size and position of the atria and ventricles, any damage to the heart and the effects that drugs have on it.
