Department of New Diagnostic Methods

Head of the Department
Rogoza Anatoly Nikolaevich, Doctor of Biological Sciences, Professor.

The department was established in 1982 and currently includes the ECG Laboratory. The scientific work of the department is aimed at improving methods for assessing the structural and functional state of the heart and blood vessels and is carried out in the following areas.

Scientific directions.

Development and introduction into practice of new methods of functional diagnostics.

Methods for the study of hemodynamics during ambulatory monitoring, carrying out functional and stress tests:

  • Study of the genesis of syncope using a long-term postural test, exercise test with multifunctional operational monitoring.
  • Study of the genesis of orthostatic instability using an active orthostatic test with operational control of the cardiorespiratory system and cerebral hemodynamics.
  • Development of new approaches to bi- and polyfunctional monitoring in hospital and outpatient settings.
  • Study of the relationship between heart rhythm disturbances, blood pressure profile and respiration during sleep by the method of multifunctional monitoring.
  • Comprehensive study of the functional state of the vascular wall.
  • Study of the features of microcirculation and blood flow in the presence of cardiovascular pathology.
  • Remote control of hemodynamic parameters.

The most significant research results of recent years:

  • The method of long-term passive orthostatic test (Tilt test) and stress test with multifunctional operational registration of cardiovascular system and EEG parameters has been proposed and introduced into practice for examination of patients with idiopathic syncope
  • Together with domestic manufacturers, a new generation of ambulatory blood pressure monitors have been developed (and are being serially produced) with complete preservation of informative signals, analysis of the daily dynamics of arterial stiffness and reflected wave indicators.

Methods developed and improved in the department that are successfully used in the department of functional diagnostics:

  1. 24-hour and 48-hour monitoring of blood pressure in hospital and outpatient settings.
  2. Bi- and multifunctional monitoring in hospital and outpatient settings.
  3. Bifunctional (BP + ECG) 24-hour monitoring.
  4. 24-hour monitoring of blood pressure and rigidity of large arteries.
  5. Screening cardiorespiratory monitoring for the study of breathing disorders during sleep.
  6. Long-term postural test with multifunctional operational monitoring to study the genesis of syncope.
  7. Active orthostatic test with operational (beat-by-beat) registration and control of the cardiorespiratory system and cerebral hemodynamics to study the genesis of orthostatic instability.
  8. Computer sphygmography with an objective assessment of the stiffness of the large main arteries.
  9. Research of microcirculation.
  10. Transcranial Doppler monitoring of blood flow in the vessels of the brain with the detection of microemboli.
