Facts on CardioVascular Disease
Every 30 seconds someone suffers a heart attack, and every 45 seconds, another has a stroke. Because a stroke or heart attack can often occur without warning or symptoms, having the facts about your vascular health is a vital first step in prevention.
PAD or Peripheral Artery Disease is blockages in the arteries that go to the legs. Ten million people have PAD, and 90% do not know they have it. A person with PAD is two to four times more likely to have a heart attack compared to the general population.
Ultrasound and Ankle Brachial Index are not routinely ordered by physicians unless symptoms are present. AngioScreen measurements provide an assessment of risk that can be enhanced by consultation with your personal physician who may recommend other measures of vascular risk and health.
Your 15 minute vascular screening includes:
- Carotid Artery Ultrasound Scan - checks for blockages and plaque in the arteries of the neck
- Peak Systolic Velocity - gauges the speed of blood flow checking for blockages and narrowing
- Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) - checks for blockages in the arteries of the leg
- Abdominal Aorta Aneurysm Ultrasound Scan - measures details that can help detect an aneurysm before it ruptures
- Heart Rhythm - a modified EKG will show the rhythm of your heart
- Blood Pressure
- Body Mass Index (BMI)
- Health Education Materials
- Immediate Color Printout and Digital Results
- Non-diagnostic Consultation with a Registered Nurse
The assessment includes a private consultation with a nurse educator who will review your results and provide free educational materials as well. In addition, you will receive a color printout and CD of your results that we encourage you to share with your personal physician. Abnormal findings are highlighted in red.
