Erina MacSweeney BSc (Hon ) Dip CNM MIANT will offer customers of Matt O’Flaherty Chemists advice on cardiovascular problems including angina and high cholesterol today (Thursday ) and Friday. Ms MacSweeney will offer cardiovascular screenings using the new B Pro device in Matt O’Flaherty Pharmacy, William Street, on both days.
The BPro cardio pulse-wave device offers the most advanced technology in the cardio health screening market.
This state of the art equipment, technology, and A-PULSE CASP software is now available to the general public as a means of measuring cardiovascular health. You can take a quick, non-invasive, screening that will immediately give you a baseline of your heart health. This technology accurately measures the central aortic systolic pressure (CASP ). CASP is the blood pressure measured at the root of the aorta and the BPro is the only device approved to be used in a common clinical setting. CASP has been shown in many recent studies as an important determinant for strokes and CVS events. The CPW is 99.17 per cent accurate and is shown to be as accurate as an angiogram in the measurement of aortic pressure. This is great news for the general public. Finally, there is an affordable screening that can help you take control of your cardiovascular health.
Screenings will take place today (Thursday ) and Friday in Matt O Flaherty Chemists, William Street. Screenings are by appointment only and cost €50 .
