The Sports Physicians at SSC are specifically trained to manage medical problems that can be affected by exercise including diabetes, asthma and cardiovascular disease. Working with consultant cardiologists and respiratory physicians at SSC we have an advanced fitness screening programme aimed at all levels from elite athlete, to recreational exerciser, to those aiming to lose weight.
Under 45 years
Your fitness screening will be broken down into 2 appointments
Appointment – Health/Risk Stratification – assessed by Nursing staff
This screening process allows us to appropriately screen those patients who may benefit from more in depth examination and investigation prior to exercise testing. In those patients where further evaluation is warranted an appointment is made to return for fasting lipid profile, glucose testing with a Sports Medicine Physician review prior to fitness testing.
Followed by appropriate fitness screening
- VO2max/Cardiopulmonary exercise test
Over 45 years
Anyone over the age of 45 wishing to arrange an appointment should call our fitness department on 01 5262050 for more information as further tests will be required prior to you booking an appointment.
