Cardiac screenings help care for your heart's well-being by identifying your unique risk factors for heart disease. The results help us craft a personalized plan for your optimal heart health.
During a cardiac screening, your cardiologist investigates your medical history and conducts a thorough physical examination to assess your overall health. These assessments include measuring blood pressure and blood glucose levels, evaluating your lipid profile, and more.
Your heart is a remarkable organ that tirelessly pumps blood, supplying life-sustaining oxygen and nutrients to every corner of your body. It needs regular check-ups and maintenance to continue functioning at its best.
Heart health is closely linked to your overall well-being, and early detection is key to preventing heart disease and its complications. While some factors contributing to heart disease are beyond your control, many others are influenced by your lifestyle choices.
At Corrielus Cardiology, our cardiac screenings help safeguard your heart's health. These screenings are an essential part of our preventive cardiology services, aiming to identify and address potential risk factors for heart disease proactively.
These screenings offer a comprehensive picture of your heart's current condition and your risk for developing cardiovascular issues in the future. Once we understand your individual risk factors, we can suggest proactive steps to improve your heart health, leading to a longer and healthier life.
The insights from these cardiac tests help determine the necessity for further diagnostic tests, ensuring the early identification of any underlying conditions. If your screening results indicate the need for further diagnostic tests, our team is well-equipped to conduct these tests promptly.
Tests included as part of a preventive screening process can include:
- Blood Pressure Readings: Elevated blood pressure can be an early indicator of cardiovascular concerns.
- Blood Glucose Levels: Monitoring your blood glucose levels is crucial in assessing your risk for diabetes, a condition closely linked to heart disease.
- Lipid Level Evaluation: We evaluate your lipid levels, which include cholesterol and triglycerides, to gauge their impact on your heart health.
- Noninvasive Stress Testing: This tiest helps us assess how well your heart performs under stress, providing valuable insights into its healthy functioning.
- Doppler Ultrasound: This is a noninvasive imaging technique that allows us to examine blood flow through your blood vessels. The test helps detect potential blockages or abnormalities.
- Electrocardiogram (EKG): An EKG records your heart's electrical activity, helping us identify irregular heart rhythms and potential issues with the heart's electrical system.
- Echocardiogram (ECG): This heart ultrasound provides a detailed view of its structure and function, assisting in detecting structural abnormalities or functional concerns.
At Corrielus Cardiology, we believe every patient is unique, and their path to heart health should reflect this individuality. The information gathered during your cardiac screening plays a pivotal role in assessing your heart's well-being.
