Our cardiology department received £26,080 to fund a state of the art treadmill system, which will help diagnose narrow or blocked arteries in patients with heart problems.

Medication is normally used to cause stress for the heart, so medical staff can monitor and record any issues. Exercise on the treadmill can now replace the drugs, to put the same stress on the heart in a more natural way.

Siva Ratnatheepan, Registered Clinical Scientist and Head of ECHO Services at the Royal Surrey, told us:

“The cardio treadmill has made a tremendous impact on diagnosis of heart disease in our local community. It picks up cardiac problems quickly, and allows us to better assess risk levels of our patients. Thanks to this equipment, we are expanding our service and enhancing the reputation of ECHO services in the region. Thank you for your donations.”
