Athletic Sports Screening Package $788 (before GST)

The benefits of regular exercise have been proven beyond doubt and it is increasingly becoming a way of life for many, with persons of all ages participating in various sporting activities (eg. marathons, triathlons and mass cycling events). This has unfortunately led to the increased incidence of exercise-related sudden cardiac deaths in persons with undiagnosed pre-existing cardiovascular disease.

Aims of Screening

This athlete sports screening package aims to provide a comprehensive cardiovascular evaluation and risk stratification in persons embarking on strenuous exercise programs. This is not only to detect potentially lethal cardiovascular diseases likely to manifest with sudden cardiac death during vigorous activities, but also to avoid the deleterious physical and psychological sequelae of unnecessary athletic restriction.

Who should go for screening?

  • Persons with a history of heart problems (eg hole in the heart, heart murmur, heart valve disorders, blocked coronary arteries, heart muscle disorders) intending to start on an exercise program.
  • Persons with a strong family history of sudden death or blocked coronary arteries intending to start on an exercise program.
  • Persons who experience abnormal symptoms during exercise
  1. 1
    a. Chest pain
  2. 2
    b. Unexplained shortness of breath
  3. 3
    c. Irregular heart beat
  4. 4
    d. Fainting of unknown cause
  • Persons above 15 years of age intending to participate in competitive and physically demanding sporting activities.
  • Persons above 35 years of age intending to participate in a physically demanding exercise program.

What conditions do we screen for?

  • Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
