General Screening

Screening checks are an important part of your wellbeing along with exercise, a healthy diet and lifestyle. 

All adults should have a health screening from time to time, even if they are healthy 

The purpose of this is to:

  • Screen for diseases
  • Assess risk of any future medical problems
  • Help develop a healthy lifestyle

Information

Even if you feel well and are not having symptoms, it is still important to have a health screen regularly to check for potential problems. Most people who have high blood pressure don’t even know it. The only way to find out is to have your blood pressure checked regularly. Likewise, high blood sugar, high cholesterol levels and certain heart arrhythmias like atrial fibrillation often do not produce any symptoms until the disease becomes advanced.

There are specific times when you should have a health screen. Age-specific guidelines for anyone above the age of 40 years are as follows:

Blood Pressure Screening:

  • Have your blood pressure checked every two years unless it is 120-139/80-89 Hg or  higher. Then have it checked every year.
  • Watch for blood pressure screenings in your area. Ask your doctor if you can drop in to have your blood pressure checked. Check your blood pressure using the automated machines at local grocery stores and pharmacies.
  • If the top number (systolic number) is greater than 130 or the bottom number (diastolic number) is greater than 85, you need to consult your doctor.
  • If you have diabetes, heart disease, kidney problems, or certain other conditions, you may need to be monitored more closely.

Cholesterol, Diabetes Screening and Heart Disease Prevention:

  • Anyone above the age of 30 years should be checked every five years.
  • If you have diabetes, heart disease, kidney problems, or certain other conditions, you may need to be monitored more closely.

At Cardiac Screen we  advice you of medical problems which may cause you ill health in the future and which, if detected early on, can be addressed appropriately. The screening checks are available for all age groups and can be modified to your needs depending on your symptoms and budget.
