What does it involve?

 
 

General Assessment

▸ Historical & Clinical Examination by Health Screening Doctor
Weight, Height, BMI

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a person's weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness. BMI can be used to screen for weight categories that may lead to health problems but it is not diagnostic of the body fatness or health of an individual.

Blood Pressure Screening

This test is a simple way of checking if your blood pressure is too high or too low. High blood pressure (hypertension) can put a stress on your arteries and organs, which can increase your risk of developing serious problems such as heart attacks and strokes. Low blood pressure (hypotension) is not usually as serious, but it can cause dizziness and fainting in some people, especially elderly.

Blood Screening

▸ Full Blood Count
Haemoglobin; RBC; WCC; 5 part differential count; Platelet count; PCV; MCH/MCV; MCHC; Peripheral blood film; ESR (erythrocytes sedimentation rate)

This test gives an overview of blood health: highlighting early signs of blood disoders, infection, inflammation and blood cancers.

Diabetes Screening

Fasting Blood Glucose & HbA1c(Average blood sugar level over 3 months)

This test tells you how much sugar you have circulating in your body. Higher sugar (glucose) predisposes you to diabetes. If this test is taken alongside a blood test for HbA1C – it can help to diagnose diabetes.

Lipid Assessment

Lipid Profile
Total cholesterol; Triglycerides; LDL; HDL; Total cholesterol/HDL ratio

This is an in depth test showing levels of various cholesterols and fatty acids in your blood. High cholesterol predisposes to heart disease, stroke and diabetes. This test is also helpful to guide patients on existing cholesterol lowering medication – togauge if they are on adequate medication.

Liver Function

 Liver Function Profile
ALT (SGPT); AST (SGOT); GGT; Total protein; Albumin; Globulin; ALP; Bilirubin (total)

This test gives an overview of liver function: highlighting your body's nutrition status, protein content, liver enzyme function and ability to excrete your body's toxins and waste. It detects any early signs of liver dysfunction.

Kidney Function

Renal Profile
Sodium; Potassium; Chloride; Urea; Creatinine; Phosphate; Calcium

This test gives an overview of kidney health: highlighting early signs of reduced kidney function, body electrolyte content, mineral content and hydration level.

Urine Analysis

▸ Urine FEME
urinalysis: appearance, colour, pH, protein, glucose, ketones, blood, WBC, RBC, epithelial cells, crystal, cast, bilirubin, urobilinogen, nitrite, leukocytes

This test gives a comprehensive overview of your kidney health. Abnormalities can highlight early signs of urinary tract dysfunction, diabetes or liver dysfunction.

Blood Grouping

▸ Blood Grouping (ABO & Rh)

This test is conducted to categorise your blood type and group, alongside your Rhesus status. It is important to know your blood type to prevent the risk of you receiving an incompatible blood type at a time of need, such as during a blood transfusion or during surgery.

Hepatitis Screening

Hepatitis B Screening

This test can screen or diagnose for Hepatitis B infection or determine if you are immune. It can also monitor your condition if you have existing Hepatitis.

Thyroid Assessment

Thyroid Function Test
FSH, Free T3, Free T4

TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) test gives an overview of thyroid health: highlighting the effectiveness of your body's metabolism. Free thyroxine (free T4) tests are used to help evaluate thyroid function and diagnose thyroid diseases, including hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. It is usually analysed when thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) level is abnormal. Triiodothyronine (free T3) tests are used to help evaluate thyroid function and diagnose thyroid diseases, including hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. It is usually analyzed when thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) level is abnormal, and done alongside Free T4.

Cardiac Screening

Resting ECG

An ECG (electrocardiogram) records the electrical activity in your heart at rest. This can give insight into your heart rate and heart rhythm. It also highlights irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias), previous heart attacks (myocardial infarction), blocked coronary arteries, high blood pressure (hypertension), heart valvular diseases and structural heart defects.

Echocardiogram

An echocardiogram uses ultrasound imaging to provide detailed views of the heart. It is used to assess the overall pumping function of the heart, to determine presence of valvular heart disease and many order diseases of the heart (infective endocarditis, congenital heart disease, pericardial diseases).

Stress Test (Treadmill)

An ECG (electrocardiogram) records the electrical activity in your heart. During the stress test, you’ll be asked to exercise, typically on a treadmill, while you’re hooked up to an ECG machine. This can give insight into your heart rate and heart rhythm. It also highlights irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias), previous heart attacks (myocardial infarction), blocked coronary arteries, high blood pressure (hypertension), heart valvular diseases and structural heart defects.

C-Reactive Protein Test (hs-CRP)

This test, alongside the other blood tests, is a sign of infection, inflammation or even cancer in some cases.

ABPI (Screening for cardiovascular disease)

ABPI (ankle-brachial pressure index) is the ratio of the blood pressure at the ankle to the blood pressure in the upper arm. Lower blood pressure in the leg compared to the arm suggests blocked arteries due to peripheral artery disease (PAD). The ABPI is calculated by dividing the systolic blood pressure at the ankle by the systolic blood pressure in the arm.

Respiratory Assessment

Pulmonary Function Test (PFT)

Pulmonary function tests (PFTs) are noninvasive tests that indicate how efficient the lungs are functioning. The tests measure lung volume, capacity, rates of flow, and gas exchange. This information can help your doctor diagnose and decide the treatment of certain lung disorders.

Infectious Disease Screening

Venereal Disease Research Laboratory (VDRL)

This test is a screening test for Syphilis.

Eye Tests

Vision Test

A series of tests performed to assess vision, visual fields and ability to focus on and discern objects.

Radiological Examination

Chest X-Ray

Chest X Ray is an imaging test used to help detect abnormalities or diseases of the airways, blood vessels, bones, heart and lungs.
