Heart Health Check and Monitoring
Reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease with our confidential assessments using advanced ECG and Echocardiogram heart health checks.
“Heart disease can develop over years but lifestyle changes can accelerate your risks, in some cases without any clear symptoms. To help you get the best possible outcomes, identification, prevention, and ongoing heart scans are key.”
Imran Khan, TransformNow Founder
Who should get a heart scan and what do they detect?
You may need a scan if you have any of the following:
- Chest pain
- Dizziness, lightheadedness or confusion
- Heart palpitations
- Rapid pulse
- Shortness of breath
- Weakness, fatigue or a decline in ability to exercise
Scans can help detect:
- Damage from a previous heart attack
- Heart failure
- Congenital heart disease (birth defects affecting the heart)
- Problems with your heart valves
- Cardiomyopathy (thickening of the heart walls)
- Endocarditis (an infection of the heart valves)
- Abnormal heart rhythms
- If blocked or narrowed arteries are causing chest pains
- How well treatments like pacemakers are working
Our services for a healthy heart.
From heart scans and monitoring to blood tests and understanding your genetic risks to heart disease, we provide a comprehensive healthy heart service.
An electrocardiogram essentially records the electrical activity and signals in your heart. It’s a common and painless test used to quickly detect heart problems and monitor your heart’s health.
“12-lead ECG” uses a total of 10 electrodes: six on your chest and one each on the lower arms and calves.
Resting ECG – Involves laying still and completed within 5 minutes.
Exercise ECG – Electrical activity of your heart is measured while you are physically active.
Holter monitor – The electrical activity of the heart is typically recorded over a period of 24 hours.
An echocardiogram can help diagnose certain heart conditions by checking the structure of the heart and blood vessels, analyzing how blood flows through them, and assessing the chambers of the heart.
There are several different ways an echocardiogram can be carried out, but most people will have a transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE).
TTE – Sticky sensors are attached to your chest. An ultrasound probe is moved across your chest.
Stress echocardiogram – carried out during or just after a period of exercise on a treadmill or exercise bike
Contrast echocardiogram – a harmless contrast agent is injected into your bloodstream and can help create a better image of your heart.
Transoesophageal echocardiogram (TOE) – a small probe is passed down the throat into your gullet and stomach. Your throat will be numbed with local anesthetic spray and you’ll be given a sedative to help you relax.
