Keeping the Heart Healthy

While heart disease is still the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States, most all heart diseases are preventable and treatable with the right information and support.

A regular doctors visit is a place to explain any concerns of heart disease. Doctors will listen and determine if you are someone who should undergo regular heart disease screenings. One of the first tests in heart disease screenings are Resting ECG Exams. These exams record the hearts rhythm and can make visible, inconsistent heart rates, and even damage of the heart. If exercise or climbing stairs is a concern, Stress ECG Exams test the heart under athletic load by walking on a treadmill or riding an exercise bike.

Blood Pressure and Blood Tests are also Exams a Doctor may order to determine your cardiovascular health. These tests also tell if a person is at risk for diabetes heart attack and stroke and are important exams to receive an individual and doctor believe they are at risk for any of these problems.
