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.
Healthy Heart Screen
We have developed our own screening process to detect arterial disease and access the risk and what steps a person needs to take. Our goal is to provide everyone with a low cost way to find out if they have disease before moving forward with testing and treatment. The screening is non invasive, takes about 45 minutes, and you are given your results and recommendations right away.
Know Your Arterial Age - The CIMT
The Carotid Intima Media Thickness ultrasound allows us to detect and measure the severity of arterial disease and plaque in the arteries. We are able to give an arterial age to compare to your real age to see how healthy you are. This test also gives us the ability to monitor progress and make sure the course of treatment is working.
Body Composition Analysis
We use the InBody 570 to see the 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 with the number on the scale.
Continuous Glucose Monitoring
The Medtronic IPro2 tests the blood glucose every 5 minutes to provide data of what is happening throughout the day with our diabetic patients. They are able to 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.
