World Heart Day: Cardiology centre offers free screening and consultations
Every three minutes, someone dies and about 17.3 million lives are lost annually owing to heart or circulatory disease. It is against this backdrop that the World Heart Federation (WHF) in 2000 founded the World Heart Day, as part of an international campaign to spread awareness about heart disease and stroke prevention.
The day is celebrated every September 29 with a selected theme, and the aim is to inform people globally to take care of their heart and improve health by making lifestyle changes.
As part of activities for this year’s celebration, leading cardiology and Nigeria’s only independent cardiac centre, The Grays Cardiology Centre on Friday, provided free BP checkups, X-rays, glaucoma screening, consultations and more for guests and participants as part of the centre’s activities for this year’s celebration.
The screening and consultations, which held at The Grays Cardiac Centre, Ladipo Bateye, off Adekunle Fajuyi Way, GRA, Ikeja, Lagos, featured a special health talk with Dr. Soe Moe Aung, a Consultant Interventional Cardiologist, with focus on the effects of blood pressure on body organs.
Dr. Soe, a member of the European Society of Cardiology, has to his credit, 10 years successful practice in Istanbul, Turkey. He is widely known for his experience and interest in cardiac interventions such as coronary stentings, pacemaker, implantable cardioverter/defibrillator interventions as well as interventions of carotid and peripheral arteries.
Already leading the conversations among Nigerian health experts and patients on provision of sustainable and effective healthcare, the centre is holding a free cardiology consult this September, with 50 percent off for follow-up cases after the World Heart Day.
The Grays Cardiology Center, a subsidiary of the Reddington Healthcare Group, is fully equipped with state-of-the-art equipment such as Resting Electrocardiogram, Exercise Electrocardiography, Ambulatory Electrocardiogram, Echo cardiogram, Stress Echo cardiogram, Ambulatory Blood pressure monitoring for managing all cardiology cases, as well as ventilators and cardiac monitors for managing all cardiology cases.
