Our revolutionary Heart and Stroke Screening service is carried out by trained technicians in a friendly environment rather than an intimidating environment of a hospital or a waiting room.
The screenings are accurate, safe, quick, completely painless and non-invasive. It takes only about 20 minutes per person.
Our Heart & Stroke Screening is a major advance in science for monitoring the cardiovascular health of people without the need for invasive and traumatic procedures. When did you last have your heart and arteries checked? Do you have heart disease in your family? Hypertension is a hidden disease and you may not know that you have it. In 2010 almost 75% of adults aged 65 and over in Ireland had hypertension. Today these figures are even higher. This condition goes largely unnoticed until a serious health event strikes. When you have hypertension the risk of a heart attack, stroke, kidney damage and other serious illnesses are greatly increased.
Straight after the screening, we provide each person with their results in a convenient presentation folder. They will then have the opportunity to address these serious threats to their health should their results so indicate. Prevention is a much more preferable option then difficult and lengthy treatment for serious illness.
The revolutionary BPro® Heart Monitor provides unprecedented capabilities in acquiring highly accurate, real time heart and arterial data for the early health management of cardiovascular conditions and related issues. The BPro® measures Central Aortic Systolic Pressure (CASP) and arterial elasticity among others, providing critical information for you that can help you identify problems before they become a life threatening health risk.

Cholesterol & Diabetes Testing
A cholesterol test is a simple, fasting, finger-prick blood test that can measure the amount of cholesterol and triglycerides in your blood. High cholesterol levels usually don’t cause any signs or symptoms, so a cholesterol test is a very important and necessary tool as high cholesterol is often a significant risk factor for heart disease. The diabetes check is a quick and simple, fasting blood glucose test which is a measure of how much sugar is in your blood when you have not consumed any food in the previous 8-10 hours. Results are given immediately.
24 Cuff Less Blood Pressure Monitoring
Your blood pressure fluctuates over 24 hours within an optimum range, forming a unique blood pressure pattern. Generally blood pressure will be at its lowest when you’re asleep and rises when you get up. For most of your waking hours, your blood pressure stays pretty much the same when you are sitting or standing still. That level should be lower than 120/80 [BHS-2000 recommendation]. When the level stays high, 140/90 or higher, you have high blood pressure. With high blood pressure, the heart works harder and your chances of a stroke, heart attack, and kidney problems are greater. Therefore, it is important for you to have your blood pressure pattern profiled or tracked over 24 hours at regular intervals to have a better picture of these fluctuations. A single reading at home or at the clinic does not represent your BP over the 24 hours.
