Healthy Heart Screen
We see the numbers of what arterial disease is doing to those in our community as well as across the country and the world. Our goal is to prevent and reverse arterial disease and that means finding it as soon as possible, not just waiting to intervene once something has gone wrong.
That is why The Center for Prevention developed our Healthy Heart Screen process to evaluate arterial and metabolic health. We use this process as a first step to detect disease and evaluate risk factors. Our goal is to catch any arterial disease early, reverse the damage, and prevent any further disease.
We believe in this screening process as a method to non invasively check for health problems without running a series of expensive tests before we have an idea of the situation. Our care is guided by a careful process to get to the root cause of someone's individual health concerns. Our Helathy Heart Screen allows us to start at the beginning with someone who is new to our office and get a baseline of where we should begin our care.
Carotid Ultrasound Screen
Ultrasound allows us to look for atherosclerotic plaque building in the arteries. If plaque is found, we can schedule further detailed assessment using Carotid Intima Media Thickness ultrasound scans to fully access the pregression of the disease and give us a way to measure the effecgtiveness of treatment.
Body Composition Analysis
The Inbody 570 uses Direct Segmental Multi-frequency Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis to report what you are made of. This information gives insight into Insulin Resistance/ Prediabetes/ Type 2 Diabetes as well as signs of other potential health risks. The meaurements allow us to track and show improvement to encourage and modify lifestyle changes.
Atrial Fibrillation Test
A single lead EKG evaluates the heart rhythm to look for atrial fibrillation or other irregularities of your heart beat. Atrial Fibrillation is an irregular heartbeat that can lead to blood clots, stroke and heart attack. We look for this becasue peoeple living with AFIB are 2x more likely for a heart attack and 5x more likely for a stroke.
Records current treatment, past events, family history and lifestyle issues that could contribute to arterial and metabolic disease. We want to find out what could be factoring into your risk of having an event so we can have a big picture view of where to start treatment.
