Did you know that two people die of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) every week in Ireland?
It’s a sobering number, isn’t it? Even more so when you think that these deaths are usually preventable. Laya Healthcare’s HeartBeat screening service is designed to tackle SADS head on. 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 to confirm specific locations):
- Dublin (incl. the new laya health & wellbeing clinic)
