Take Care of Your Heart

Today’s life is intense and varied; it gives many opportunities for self-fulfillment and provides plenty of opportunities for entertainment. But there is a downside we experience: air pollution, traffic problems, trauma, stress, poor nutrition and a rapid speed of life and a lack of exercise. All these factors quietly but steadily erode men’s health.

Mostly in our modern lifestyle it is men who suffer from heart disease – according to statistics, diseases of this kind have increased threefold over the past 25 years. And nearly every second man is at risk. A typical image of the cardiology patient is a man older than 40-45 years experiencing emotional stress, smoking and perhaps also suffering from hypertension, diabetes or obesity. In order to understand how your heart copes with the pace of life AMC’s experts offer for all men who have reached the fortieth anniversary a small test. The test may show that it is advisable to make a consultation with a cardiologist.

How well does your heart work?

1. In 30 seconds can you lean forward without bending your knees, getting your fingertips to the floor? The rate for men under 45 – 50 years – 20 times, for men over 50 years – 12 times.

Yes – 0, no – 2

2. A few minutes after exercise, count your pulse. Is your result less than 100 beats per minute?

Yes – 0, no – 2

3. Can you stand for a minute on one leg?

Think You Have COVID-19? We Are Testing.

How does it work?

  • Call your local AMC and consult with one of our physicians. The care provider will determine which diagnostic fits best for you – COVID-19 PCR or Antibody testing.
  • Request an appointment for COVID-19 testing either in clinic or at your place.
  • Results for PCR testing may take up to 24 hours to process while results for Antibody testing are ready within 15 minutes.

How PCR and Antibody Testing differ from each other?

  • The PCR test takes a swab from the back of the nose and throat and looks for the presence of the virus itself.
  • The Antibody testing looks at a blood sample for antibodies generated in the body in response to the virus, showing whether or not the person tested has been exposed to it in the past.
Whether you have detected COVID-19 symptoms, require an Official COVID-19 Certificate for traveling purposes or if you’re wondering if you’ve previously had coronavirus — contact AMC Kyiv.
*During busy lab times, PCR Testing may take up to 48 hours.
