24 Hour Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitor

We do offer Open Access 24ABPM

The 24 hour blood pressure monitor is designed to record the patient's blood pressure every 20 minutes throughout the day and hourly during the night, over a 24 hour period. A simple procedure where the patient is fitted with a blood pressure cuff to their upper arm. The monitor itself is carried in a pouch and is strapped to the patient's belt. On return to the surgery after the 24 hour recording the blood pressure readings are printed for assessment by a consultant.

Electrocardiogram (ECG)

We do not offer Open Access ECG

This is a recording of the electrical activity of the heart. These signals can be measured and recorded by attaching electrodes to the skin and connecting them to an electrocardiograph. By placing the electrodes in different places on the chest and extremities, the heart can be "seen" from different angles. The resulting output is an electrocardiogram (ECG).
