Stroke Prevention & Heart Disease Detection

Stroke Prevention & Heart Disease Detection

Due to Dr Lifson’s experience and background in cardiology, with research and publications regarding to the urgent short-term treatment (acute management) of heart attacks (myocardial infarctions), he is extremely passionate about heart health. With an active voice in the local community about the availability of defibrillators (AED), particularly in rural areas, he is dedicated to his patients having healthy hearts.

As part of his civic duty and passion for healthy hearts, Dr Lifson will provide the following:

All patients attending the clinic (for any consultation) over the age of 50 will be screened for AF (atrial fibrillation) using the Alivecor technology for FREE. If abnormal results are recorded the patient will be offered an ECG at the clinic (an £75 ECG fee will be charged for this) or the patient will be referred to their own NHS GP for an ECG. The patient will have an email report/tracing from Alivecor provided by the clinic to take to their NHS GP.

There is already a pilot project by the NHS, Scottish Centre for Telehealth and Telecare, AliveCor and the University of Edinburgh to determine the feasibility of screening for AF in a primary care setting using this technology. You can find out more about it here.
