Why have a regular check-up?
A regular check-up is considered to be a useful way of identifying the risk of a disease or detecting the early phases of its onset. Its strategic value is universally recognised, making it one of the most widespread health promotion and disease prevention procedures in the world.
The aim of a routine examination is to draw-up the patient's personal health profile through clinical and diagnostic tests and procedures, which are decided on the basis of the medical record of the patient and his/her family’s medical history.
How is the check-up designed?
The check-up enables healthcare professionals to evaluate the risk factors causing various diseases and disorders on the basis of the patient’s age, sex and lifestyle. The tests and procedures carried out in the check-up are selected on the basis of the patient's profile, and are designed for the prevention and very early detection of diseases. This is the only way to assure prompt treatment in the early stages of a disease, thus minimising its progression and complications.
The check-up must also guide patients towards a lifestyle that can ensure their best possible wellbeing. Healthcare professionals must identify any risk factors that might be harmful if ignored. Smoking, alcohol consumption, an unhealthy diet, inadequate physical exercise, excess weight and stress are some of the habits that can be altered, as long as the person is made aware of them.
Each check-up can be personalised based on the patient’s medical record, preliminary investigations and specific requests.
It will involve specialist examinations, laboratory tests and instrumental procedures, all analysed by the healthcare professional in charge of the check-up in an exhaustive final report. All test results and the medical report on the patient's state of health are collected in the personal file provided to the patient at the end of the check-up.
Check-ups are performed from Monday to Friday and are normally completed in the morning.
