Screening is non invasive and is similar to an Angiogram.

This device also tests the stiffness of the arteries, as we get older our arteries get stiffer with a build up of plaque and cholesterol, which can prevent our blood from flowing freely, Bpro will test your heart, your arteries, and your blood pressure giving you an overall heart health with a two page of a print out.

Approved by BHS (BRITISH HYPERTENSION SOCIETY (NHS –UK), Bpro has been validated independently by the National Heart Centre of Singapore and European Society of Hypertension (ESH). Being able to measure the blood pressure in the aorta, which is closer to the heart and brain, is important because this is where high blood pressure can cause damage.

The beauty of this system is that it is totally non-invasive and it only takes 30 mins approx. Professor Bryan Williams MD FRCP<FAHA Professor of Medicine at he university of Leicester School of Medicine, in the UK tested 2,000 patients with the Bpro device and the same 2,000 patients with an angiogram and the results were staggering.

The final reading re accuracy was 99.17%. Unfortunately monitoring of the heart is only instituted when a patients is already in hospital or has a heart condition. This condition is preventable and can be effectively treated if monitoring is available to everybody at an affordable price of €50.

A full explanation of your results will be explained to you and you will receive a printout when the test is complete.

This new innovative technology is coming to the Bush Hotel on Monday, April 22.
