Timely boost for medical association

NST: KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Emergency Medical Support Association (Memsa) has received a timely boost for its community service programmes.
It recently received a diagnostic equipment set from Kencana Petroleum Berhad.
The CardioVision MS2000 will enable Memsa to carry out arterial stiffness index (ASI) checks besides the usual blood pressure and pulse rate measurements.
ASI is an important diagnostic measurement to indicate whether a person’s blood vessels are still elastic or have hardened.
The hardening of arteries or arterioscleroris will cause the blood vessels to lose elasticity and become brittle, interfering with the normal flow of blood. This can lead to heart attacks, stroke or problems to key organs.
All you have to do is key in your cholesterol and blood sugar readings into the CardioVision MS2000. Within seconds, you will know the state of your arteries.
Memsa is a non-governmental organisation which lends support to other community service organisations to conduct medical camps for the less fortunate.
Call Memsa at 03-62753698 or email
