A thorough cardiovascular assessment should include a 12 lead Electrocardiogram (ECG) interpreted by an experienced Cardiologist since this sophisticated cardiac test is used to assess your heart rhythm, the electrical axis of your heart, the presence of heart disease, such as cardiomyopathy (enlarged heart), electrical abnormalities that can cause palpitation and dizzy spells and any signs of past heart attack.
Combine this with our Cardiologist report taken in context of a detailed patient questionnaire, blood Cholesterol, blood pressure and its easy to see why our Heartscreen+ Bronze can be a great guide to your Cardiovascular Health.

What does it entail?
Once you have scheduled the appointment by either calling us, or booking direct (see below) you will be sent details on when and where it will take place.
On arrival at our test centre you will need to complete our Registration form and Patient Questionnaire (unless already done). You will be asked whether your wish to have any extra blood tests done such as a Prostate screen (PSA), Vit D level, Thyroid check, or HbA1c/ Blood Sugar testing for Diabetes (these would cost extra).
You will be shown into the ECG room and the Cardiac Nurse will take down your details and measure your Blood Pressure as well as take blood from a vein in your arm.
You will then be asked to remove any clothing over your chest and electrodes connected to your chest.
The ECG will be acquired over a few minutes and forwarded electronically to the reporting Consultant Cardiologist who will issue a report. You can ask to have the print out of the ECG and report in due course either by email or post.
All of our Heartscreens involve a patient questionnaire, nurse assessment, a blood test and 12 lead ECG.
All are reported by an experienced Consultant Cardiologist so we feel that our Healthscreen patient benefit from having an expert eye look over their data and individual 'situation' without the need for potentially costly consultation.
Our Heartscreen plus Consultant report (hence Heartscreen+) will therefore help detect cardiovascular problems that may not necessarily be causing major symptoms .
What can Bronze miss?
The resting ECG is often completely normal in patients who have severe obstructive coronary artery disease, changing only on exercise or after a heart attack or damage has occured. In addition the ECG may be normal until advanced stages of Cardiomyopathy, so our Heart screen+ Bronze can miss conditions only detected by more sophisticated testing such as those used in Silver Gold and Platinum Healthscreen+ .
As shown in the table below Heartscreen+ ranges from our starter Bronze right up to a sophisticated Heartscreen+ Platinum offering state of the art Calcium scoring used to detect coronary heart disease years before symptoms develop.
