This service is permanently available for emergencies. The most frequent diagnosis and treatment techniques used are:

  • Diagnostic coronary angiogram
  • Hemodynamic studies

Unidad de Arritmias

Sometimes the heart has difficulty regulating the heart beat. This type of alteration is very frequent and has given rise to create a team of professionals who study, identify the cause and either cure or arrange a treatment plan if necessary. The arrhythmia unit carries out the following procedures:

  • Electrophysiological studies
  • Pacemaker implantation
  • ICD (implantable cardioverter-defibrillator)
  • Radiofrequency ablation

The cardiac surgery department of IMED Hospitals is made up of a team of multidisciplinary professionals including cardiac surgeons, perfusion technicians, anesthetists and theatre staff, lead by the prestigious heart surgeon Dr. Daniel Luna. This team evaluates and collaborates closely with cardiologists and intensive care department to ensure the highest guarantee during the surgical procedure and also the post operative period.

Certain heart diseases are hereditary. This unit allows the study and diagnosis of the patient and the family predisposition to suffer any alterations such as cardiomyopathy, certain arrhythmias or cot death (S.I.D.S). This unit not only reaches the diagnosis but also analyzes the DNA to establish if the condition has been inherited or if the patient is a carrier.


Our multidisciplinary team offers permanent care to cardiovascular emergencies, either on the hospital ward or in the outpatient consultancy department, thus ensuring the easiest and most comfortable option to our patients. Our team of professionals are able to attend to patients in Spanish, English, Norwegian, Dutch and German. We also have a translator service available in other languages.
