Don’t Delay your Heart Health Screening

 
<div>Cardiovascular diseases are a group of disorders of the heart and blood vessels and include coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, rheumatic heart disease and other conditions. 
</div><div>
</div><div>As we near the World Heart Day on 29 September 2020, it is important to remember that cardiovascular diseases are the number one cause of deaths, both in men and women, in Pakistan. According to some estimates, over 400,000 people die of cardiovascular complications in the country annually. The prevalence of cardiovascular diseases is particularly higher in people with risk factors, including hypertension, smoking, diabetes, obesity and an aging population. </div><div>
</div><div>As part of the Aga Khan University Hospital’s ‘Red Week’ to commemorate World Heart Day, we are offering a cardiac risk screening package at our clinical laboratories with 20% off. </div><div>
</div><div>Please remember that your heart health cannot wait. Heart attack is the latest manifestation of a cardiac condition that may have been prevented earlier with appropriate care. Therefore, monitoring and keeping a check on our heart health is crucial for timely intervention, and can prevent us from a sudden heart attack. We often ignore signs that include excessive sweating, nausea, chest pain, palpitations, shortness of breath, irregular blood pressure, and / or loss of appetite, which may appear in combination or individually. This is why, all patients with acute cardiovascular conditions are strongly recommended by doctors for routine follow-up. </div><div>
</div><div>Your safe care is our priority. Therefore, AKUH has ensured the highest level of infection control protocols and safety standards. </div><div>
</div><div>All the counters, chairs, benches and floors, as well as all frequently touched surfaces, such as door handles, railings and lift buttons are regularly cleaned and disinfected. To maintain physical distancing, seating in waiting areas and courtyards have been reorganised to create separation. Most importantly, our healthcare and support staff are regularly maintaining hand hygiene and wearing face mask at all times.</div><div>
</div><div>Choose safe care and don’t delay your heart health. For more information, call our helpline: (021) 111 911 911.</div><div>
