Cardiac Screening at Carrick Medical Centre
The gold standard in diagnosis and management of high blood pressure, we offer hassle free 24hour BP montoring.
Come in on day 1 to have the system attached to your arm, and again on day 2 for removal, analysis and results. Your results will be reviewed by a doctor and a decision can be made there and then.
We also perform 12 lead ECG (electrocardiography), and if we suspect an irregular heartbeat, we can refer you for a 24 hour heart rhythm monitor (24 hour holter). Many common cardiac problems can be diagnosed with a 12 lead ECG, including an irregular heartbeat (known as atrial fibrillation) and signs of cardiac enlargement.
