Hong Kong Adventist Hospital – Stubbs Road Introduces Rapid Access Chest Pain Clinic
Chest pains are extremely common–chances are the majority of people reading this article will have experienced some degree of chest pain in their life.
But just because it’s common doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t be treated with caution. It might just be something like heartburn, but it also might be a pre-warning to something as serious as a heart attack or stroke. The point is, without a professional medical diagnosis, you never truly know.
Statistics from the Department of Health show that between 2008 and 2017, over 30,000 people have died from coronary heart disease–that’s an astounding average of 10 deaths per day.
Not to mention that there are few to no warnings directly before a heart attack or stroke–the warning signs, like chest pain, shortness of breath and syncope come long before.
So as it is with most things concerning one’s health, it’s always better to be safe than sorry, and going for a simple cautionary checkup can be a matter of life or death.
Knowing this, the Hong Kong Adventist Hospital – Stubbs Road has worked tirelessly to come up with a convenient and accessible solution for those in Hong Kong experiencing chest pain.
The result is its Rapid Access Chest Pain Clinic–the first of its kind within a private hospital in Hong Kong.
Accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the clinic will provide quick and seamless world-class care to those experiencing chest pains and related symptoms such as shortness of breath, cold sweats and dizziness to name a few.
Hong Kong Adventist Hospital – Stubbs Road promises a rapid on-site 10-minute assessment by conducting an electrocardiogram to determine the cause of chest pain.
Time is of the essence when it comes to treating chest-pain related issues, hence why the Rapid Access Chest Pain Clinic emphasises a quick and seamless process to ensure the patient’s safety and long-term health.
Following the assessment, a dedicated team of caring and professional nurses will discuss prices and plans.
