IRISH HEART MOBILE COMING TO GLIN.

Glin Development welcome Irish Heart Foundation’s Mobile Heart Unit to attend Glin on Friday 21st April from 10am – 4pm.

On the day there will be two nurses available on the mobile health unit to provide free Blood Pressure Checks and heart health information. The one-to-one advice offered by the nurse is a vital part of this check. Each person receives a personal record card with their results and in the event of any abnormal results is advised to follow up with their GP.

High blood pressure which is a major cause of stroke and heart attack is one of the most prevalent risk factors in the population and one which once identified is manageable, thereby reducing risk. A blood pressure check is a simple, quick and non-invasive test that could prove life-saving.IMG_2082
