New sports cardiology service at NCSEM-EM
The NCSEM-EM is collaborating with Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH) to deliver a new private service in sports cardiology.
Dr John Walsh, NUH Consultant Cardiologist, will be working with a team of expert cardiac physiologists from Nottingham to deliver, whenever possible, one stop clinic visits. The clinic will provide cardiac screening for elite and amateur athletes, in addition to assessment of athletes with symptoms or abnormal cardiac tests. Athletes with heart disease may also be referred for advice on exercise prescription and rehabilitation.
Athletes and patients referred for assessment will benefit from state-of-the art equipment
and surroundings at the NCSEM-EM. The centre has a wide range of facilities including a consulting suite, electrocardiogram (ECG) and echocardiography, cardiopulmonary exercise testing, ambulatory monitors and MRI.
