Did you know that two people die of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) every week in Ireland?
We all know we shouldn’t wait until we’re sick to look after our health. Regular health checks and screenings are more important than ever. Laya Healthcare’s HeartBeat Cardiac Screening service is designed to reduce the risk of heart disease and sudden adult death syndrome. The screening gives you:
Your Body Mass Index (BMI)
Your blood pressure
A physical examination
Consultant Cardiologist review and report
We’ll also make sure we get an overview of your personal and family medical history to help identify any possible SADS triggers. Our HeartBeat screens are done by an Irish company called Advanced Medical Services, who are specialists in heart screening.The screening itself is led by a doctor and is based on recommendations by the European Society of Cardiology and the International Olympic Committee.
Screenings take place in the following areas (call us or go online to your Member Area to confirm specific locations).
- Dublin (Laya Health & Wellbeing Clinic)
- Galway (Laya Health & Wellbeing Clinic)
- Limerick (Laya Health & Wellbeing Clinic)
How To Book Your Heart Screening
