The Nephrology Unit also monitors and diagnoses arterial hypertension and the cardiovascular and renal risks that are associated with it.

The Clínica Omega Zeta has today’s most advanced technology for the control and diagnosis of arterial hypertension: automatic blood pressure monitoring or MAP, which allows us to monitor the patient’s blood pressure for 24 hours and provide medical diagnoses with optimal precision.

Just as it is important to control the risk factors of kidney disease, such as the blood pressure, dyslipidemia, renal lithiasis and urinary tract infections, the quality of life associated with renal health can also be affected by psychological variables including anxiety, stress and depression. For this reason, the Clínica Omega Zeta offers psychological care as part of this unit, therefore addressing kidney health early on from a comprehensive approach, before the quality of life can change kidney function.

The blood pressure is the measure of the force of the blood on the walls of the arteries as the heart beats. This force fluctuates throughout the day, depending on physical activity and the effects of different medications.

The consequences of hypertension can vary greatly and worsen with situations of high cholesterol or diabetes.

The Clínica Omega Zeta has the Hypertension Unit, with today’s most cutting-edge medical technology to thoroughly monitor and diagnose cardiovascular or renal risk in just 24 hours’ time.
