Coronary heart disease (CHD) is the most common cause of heart attacks, and the single biggest killer worldwide. What’s more, over 900,000 people are living with heart failure in the UK alone; not to mention those who are at an increased risk of developing heart issues due to a family history of the disease. Put simply, coronary heart disease is a major threat to human health.

At LycaHealth, we are so passionate about the power of preventative healthcare, which is why we offer a range of premium health assessments, including cardiac and prostate screening. Access to this type of superior healthcare enables you to make your health a priority in your own life, at a time and location that fits around your busy lifestyle. Health services should never be a burden or inconvenience, they should always work for you.

Assessing Heart Health

Unless the obvious signs are there, you have a pre-diagnosed heart condition, or have experienced something such as a heart attack in the past; it can be difficult to spot the warning signs of heart problems. Something as trivial as nausea and fatigue can be linked to more sinister heart problems. The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted people’s mindset, leading to many more of us making our health a priority within our own lives; this is particularly the case in terms of cardiovascular health. Moreover, there is increasing evidence to suggest COVID-19 damages heart muscle, regardless of the severity of Covid-19 symptoms a person has experienced. This is extremely concerning as damaged heart muscle puts a person at a higher risk of developing heart complications in the future.

From COVID-19, to family history, health conditions and lifestyle choices; there are so many factors that put your heart health at risk. Rest assured, our cardiac health screening service is a purposefully designed heart check up that allows you to put your health into your own hands. Find out more below.

Heart Check Up Tests

  • ECG (Electrocardiogram) – ECGs provide an easy and painless way to check the rhythm and electrical signals in the heart. As part of this test, we’ll attach sensors to the skin to help us monitor the electrical signals your heart produces each time it beats. The purpose of this heart check is to identify irregularities in a person’s heartbeat, spot the signs of coronary heart disease, see if the heart walls have become thickened or enlarged, as well as helping to check for a range of other heart conditions.
  • CT Scan for Coronary Calcium Score – Using a CT scan, we will generate a picture of your arteries to check for calcium deposits (generating a CT calcium score). This is important as too much calcium can restrict blood flow to your heart, posing serious consequences. If we spot a high level of calcified plaque early, we’ll be able to identify possible coronary artery disease before more noticeable signs prevent themselves.
  • Private Echocardiogram – Otherwise known as an echo, this type of scan offers a non-invasive method of producing detailed images of the heart’s structure. An echo helps a doctor to check on the structure of the heart, its surrounding blood vessels and even enables us to get an understanding of how blood flows through the heart. This type of heart check-up helps us to spot a range of cardiovascular issues.
  • 7 Day Zio Patch – This cardiac monitoring device is a small patch that monitors and records your heartbeat, whether you’re resting, eating, exercising or even showering. The purpose of this heart check is to help us understand how your heart is performing in your everyday life; an insight we wouldn’t be able to get solely from your trip to our clinic.
  • CT Coronary Angiogram (incl. calcium score) – Using a CT scanner, this heart check enables us to gain a look into the heart’s blood vessels to see if there is a restriction in blood flow that is going to the heart. This is an excellent diagnostic tool for a range of cardiac conditions.
  • Holter Monitoring (24-hour Holter) – This type of heart test involves you wearing a portable ECG for a 24 hour period. Compared to a normal ECG, this can help us to detect heart rhythm abnormalities that may not have been picked up during your ECG in the LycaHealth clinic.
  • Exercise Stress Test – The aim of this test is to raise your heart rate, either through exercise or medication, to see how your heart responds. We’ll look at your heart rate, blood pressure and record the electrical activity of the heart through an ECG.
