Purpose

  • Blood pressure check

    BPVH

    Blood pressure (BP) is the force of the blood against the wall of any blood vessel. The systolic BP is the pressure of the blood against the artery walls when the heart contracts (beats). The diastolic BP is the pressure of the blood against the artery walls between heartbeats, when the heart relaxes.


    This test measures heart rate, systolic and diastolic BP. This is the primary tool for detecting and monitoring hypertension.

  • Electrocardiogram (ECG)

    ECG

    Early detection of a heart problem could save your life and prevent a heart attack. ECG's are painless and easily carried out, especially as with VisitHealth you can have one done in the comfort of your home.


    An ECG looks at your heart’s rate, rhythm and electrical activity to detect problems with your heart. Sensors attached to the skin detect the electrical signals produced by your heart each time it beats. These signals can be used to identify a number of heart problems or defects.

  • ECG For Runners (Electrocardiogram)

    ECGRUN

    Test your heart health with an ECG at your home!


    An ECG looks at your heart’s rate, rhythm and electrical activity to detect problems with your heart that could cause a heart attack. Sensors attached to the skin detect the electrical signals produced by your heart each time it beats. These signals can be used to identify a number of heart problems or defects.


    Is this test for you? 


    Both new and experienced runners can be at risk of cardiac arrest when running. The extra strain on your heart can expose an underlying heart condition. If you have felt heart palpitations, have recently taken up running or are planning to run a long-distance race such as a marathon, consider an ECG to check for underlying heart problems.

  • Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM) 24 hours

    ABPM

    Are you worried about high blood pressure?


    High blood pressure contributes to heart attacks and strokes. A one-off test at a hospital does not give a complete picture as your blood pressure rises and falls throughout the day. An ABPM test over 24 hrs allows a doctor to tailor medicine and advice specifically to you.
