Cardiac Check-up (Prophylactic Cardiovascular System Screening for patients over 35)

Modern lifestyle has been associated with an increased risk of developing a cardiovascular disorder. Angina, hypertension, tachycardia (rapid heartbeat) are just a fraction of conditions, which have become significantly more common over the past few decades, with smoking, alcohol consumption, excessive consumption of fatty and fried foods, sedentary lifestyle, alongside conditions such as diabetes and renal insufficiency, being contributing factors.

Early cardiovascular disease symptoms tend to be unspecific (i.e. fatigue and poor sleep quality), so often times they are diagnosed at a late stage, when it is a lot harder to treat and may even require surgery. Unfortunately, over 17 million people die every year from various cardiovascular diseases; this number represents close to one third of all deaths. Heart disease is especially dangerous for men. More men die of heart disease than of all other diseases put together.

  • Bloodwork (CBC, SMAC, lipid profile, coagulation factor, electrolyte levels)
  • Stress echocardiography - $650
