Over 2,000 Americans die each day from heart attacks and stroke – one out of every 3 deaths or one every 40 seconds.
Six of every ten Americans who have suffered a heart attack never knew they had cardiovascular disease.
The goal of our newsletter is to keep our patients and those in the community informed about developments in our clinic, provide resources for health improvement, and share interesting topics about the healthcare field.
Are you at risk?
We depend on our arteries to keep blood flowing throughout our body, including to all our organs and brain. That’s our laser focus at The Center for Prevention Heart Attack and Stroke.
Chronic Disease Screen
We have developed our own processes to detect arterial disease and access the root causes and appropriate steps for each individual. Our goal is to provide everyone with an affordable way to find out if they have disease before moving forward with testing and treatment. The screening is non invasive, takes about 30 minutes, and you are given results and recommendations immediately.
Know Your Arterial Age - The CIMT
The Carotid Intima Media Thickness ultrasound detects and measures the severity of arterial disease and plaque in the carotid arteries. You learn your "arterial age." Younger arteries are healthier arteries. We monitor progress and assure your treatment is working.
Body Composition Analysis: The InBody 570
We use the InBody 570 to determine body composition of our patients and the groups we work with for health and fitness. This test allows us to measure and monitor body fat and muscle mass to get a real picture of what is happening far beyond the scale weight.
Continuous Glucose Monitoring
The Medtronic IPro2 tests glucose every 5 minutes to provide data of what is happening throughout the day with our diabetic patients. Patients can see what is affecting their blood sugar and how their body reacts to food and lifestyle choices. This tool gives a real overview of how well a person is managing their insulin.
