Health Screenings
Health Screening

UPMC provides a comprehensive Health Screening service that covers a broad spectrum of checks and investigations into your physical health.

We offer a Health Screening which can help detect a wide range of diseases and conditions across various systems of the body, so that we can keep you and your loved ones healthy and well.

Early detection of conditions like heart disease, stroke, and diabetes can help optimise health outcomes, reduce complications, and improve quality of life.

We provide comprehensive health screening services at our UPMC Outreach Centre facility in Carlow. To speak with a member of our Health Screening team, please use the following contact details:

Preventive Health

At UPMC, we offer advice and treatments designed to help keep you well. We focus on helping you modify any existing risk factors to prevent disease or injury. If you already have a medical condition, we will help you address it through monitoring and when necessary, treatment.

General Health Screening

At UPMC, we provide comprehensive risk assessment, tailored specifically for you. We work with you to develop an individualised plan and refer you to one of our in-house specialists or to our diagnostic services, if necessary.

We measure your blood pressure, body mass index (BMI), weight, and waist circumference to guide you towards keeping well. We also perform tests that may uncover any undiagnosed conditions, such as diabetes or thyroid problems.

We'll also measure and advise you on your cholesterol level, as well as renal, liver, and bone health profiles. We assess your lungs and heart and will order blood tests to make sure you have the full picture of your health status.

Tests and Examinations

At your Health Screening consultation our clinical team will review your pre-existing health issues, medical and medication history, lifestyle behaviours and all relevant medical family history.

Our doctors and nurses will go through a simple questionnaire with you as part of the assessment. We use the most accurate and modern techniques to check your health. This includes your heart, lungs, eyes, ears, and mouth, as well as other vital functions.

As part of your physical examination the following will be assessed:

  • Blood pressure
  • Weight & BMI
  • Body fat composition
  • Abdominal examination
  • Spirometry test
  • Cardio-respiratory system
  • Musculoskeletal system
  • Central nervous system
  • Vision/colour assessment
  • Hearing assessment

Depending on age and gender, breast examinations, pelvic examinations, PSA tests, testicular exams or prostate exams may also be conducted.

A full bloods assessment will be conducted. This includes the following tests:

  • Full blood count
  • Kidney function tests
  • Bone profile
  • Liver function tests
  • Total lipid profile
  • Fasting blood sugar
  • HBA1C
  • Urea, creatinine and eGFR
  • Iron count
  • TSH (thyroid function)
  • Vitamin B12 & Folate

Cardiology Screening and Prevention

If it is deemed that you require additional cardiology assessments, our Cardiac Disease Management Clinic at UPMC Whitfield Hospital will help you maintain heart health. We also take care of any cardiac procedures you need in a seamless service, under one roof. Our screening and treatment procedures include:

  • 24-hour Holter monitoring: This records your heart's rate and rhythm over a 24-hour period.
  • 24-hour blood pressure monitoring: This checks your blood pressure over 24 hours and is more accurate than regular tests.
  • Cardiac event monitoring: This controls the electrical activity of your heart when you need longer-term monitoring.
  • Echocardiogram (ECG): This measures how efficiently blood is being pumped through your heart's valves.
  • Exercise stress testing: This measures how well your heart copes when it is working hard.
  • Cardioversion: This treatment helps your heart return to a normal rhythm if it is not beating regularly. Cardioversion can prevent stroke, heart attack, fainting, and sudden cardiac death.
  • ILR implantation: An implantable loop recorder (ILR) is a device we use to diagnose heart rhythm disorders.
  • TOE procedure: Our specialists use a flexible device to examine your heart chambers and valves.
  • EP studies: A series of tests that examine the heart's electrical activity, also called an invasive cardiac electrophysiology test.
  • Pacemaker insertion: There have been huge advances in pacemaker technology in recent years. We fit pacemakers to regulate electrical problems with your heart.
