HeartBeat Cardiac Screening
Our HeartBeat screening is for the detection of underlying conditions that may lead to or cause cardiac events such as heart attack, stroke, or Sudden Adult Death Syndrome, and also the risk factors that lead to chronic heart disease.
Heart disease develops in silence over many years and is usually very advanced by the time people experience any symptoms. People can die suddenly from heart disease and often before medical care is sought. However, the good news is that it is preventable.
Statistics also show that two people are lost to Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) every week in Ireland. Our HeartBeat screen allows for the detection of underlying conditions that may lead to or cause Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.
Having a cardiac screen can help identify such cardiac abnormalities and in turn may save your life.
Important note: In response to the evolving Covid-19 situation and following the advice of social distancing, our existing HeartBeat screening appointments are postponed. This is a temporary measure and our screening appointments will resume as soon as it's safe to do so.
The test includes the following:
1. Personal and family history questionnaire
2. Physical tests:
- Body mass index
- Waist circumference
- Blood pressure monitoring
- 12 lead electrocardiogram (ECG)
- Physical examination with a doctor
- Consultant cardiologist review and report
Tests: The ECG is completed by a qualified cardiac technician or nurse and the physical tests are completed by a qualified doctor. All tests are reviewed by one of our leading consultant cardiologists.
Employee report: Results are received electronically within 10 working days.
Corporate report: We will provide your company with an anonymous report with the findings of the screening. This will summarise in simple detail the overall health status of your company and enable you to focus your efforts on company-wide initiatives to improve those areas that matter. This will include information such as the number that had to go for cardiac follow up, the number of people with high blood pressure, body mass index and high waist circumference.
HeartBeat screening is delivered by a cardiac technician/nurse and a medical doctor.
Minimum of 40 and maximum of 45 participants a day.
