Heart Health Screening

    Waves Heart Health Screening offers a range of diagnostic health screening tests here at NIHP Durham, including detailed heart diagnostics. These can detect potentially dangerous abnormalities that may otherwise go unnoticed.

    Early diagnosis can lead to timely treatment and help to prevent the devastating effects of undiagnosed abnormalities.

     

    Why would I need a heart health screening?

    For many people, a disorder is only detected when they have displayed symptoms over an extended period of time. However, the possibility of recovery/ stabilising an illness is much higher if the illness is detected at an early stage and subsequently treated.

    A preventative heart health screening check can enable you to identify potential concerns in time, or even just to give you some reassurance regarding your health. That alone, often gives peace of mind.

    Echocardiogram
    An echocardiogram, or “echo”, is a scan used to look at the heart and nearby blood vessels.It’s a type of ultrasound scan, which means a small probe is used to send out high-frequency sound waves that create echoes when they bounce off different parts of the body.
    Health Screening Questionnaire
    From the information you provide about your lifestyle and family history, we can give you a thorough evaluation of your risk of heart disease.
    Blood Pressure Monitoring
    A blood pressure test is a simple way of checking if your blood pressure is too high or too low.Blood pressure is the term used to describe the strength with which your blood pushes on the sides of your arteries as it’s pumped around your body.
    Cholesterol Test
    High cholesterol, though potentially damaging, may not cause observable symptoms. You can only find out if you have it from a blood test.The test can be done by pricking your finger. A drop of blood is put on a strip of paper. This is put into a machine that checks your cholesterol in a few minutes.
    Blood Health Screening Package
    A small amount of blood will be collected via a syringe. This will then be sent off to be analysed by doctors in a laboratory. It looks at everything from your risk of heart disease and diabetes to how your major organs are functioning.We include some vital tests for energy, like thyroid function, iron and essential vitamins and minerals, and we take a look at your hormone balance to make sure your levels are where they should be for your stage of life.
