New guidelines suggest that everyone above the age of 65 years of age should be screened for Atrial Fibrillation, which is an irregular heart beat/pulse, annually. Atrial Fibrillation is a leading cause of stroke.
This records the electrical activity of the heart. The heart produces tiny electrical impulses which spread through the heart muscle to make it beat. These impulses are detected by the ECG machine, that can be done here at, Carrig Medical Centre. The Nurse attaches the electrodes to parts of your body which in turn will take the reading of your heart beats and you will be given your result at your consultation. It is important you let the reception team know that you want an ECG at your consultation as we need time to set the machine up and input your details.

We look forward to being of help to you.
