Screening

SCREENING, IT REALLY MAKES A DIFFERENCE

It is easy to dismiss the need for cardiac screening if you don’t fit into the most obviously at-risk group. However, heart screening isn’t just for older men. 

 

Getting tested for heart disease is particularly important if you have a family history of cardiovascular problems. Cardiac screening will be able to detect the hidden risk factors, such as high blood pressure or raised cholesterol, that can put us at risk of heart disease even when we feel healthy.

 

We were very proud and excited for the first official Danny Jones Defibrillator Fund Screening sessions.

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

Screening is a way of finding out if people are at higher risk of a health problem, so that early treatment can be offered or information given to help them make informed decisions.

During our session at Water Head Warriors one gentleman was sent straight to hospital after issues were spotted from his ECG. Situations like this really make us realise what we do and try to do really is 100% worth while ♥️ 

 

Thank goodness for yesterday and Keiron is now in the best hands possible.

Our screening sessions are held in conjunction with Welsh Hearts, who Lizzie is a proud Ambassador. Welsh Hearts provide screening in Wales in Danny's memory.
