Comprehensive Cardiac Screening
What is Cardiac Screening?
Screening used to find diseases before symptoms appear. The screening tested through the patient’s past medical history, family records, age, obesity, and gender. Depending on your lifestyle choices, your risk factor for developing cardiovascular diseases may be increased, especially if you continuously smoke, consume alcohol, maintain a poor diet, or don’t get enough exercise.
- If there are no signs or symptoms of coronary artery disease during cardiac screening, it may be alternatively measured through:
→ Low-density lipoproteins & High-density lipoproteins
→ Blood sugar levels, Blood pressure levels
→ High-sensitivity c-reactive protein (hs-CRP) [inflammation or swelling in the body-parts]
Basic Cardiac Screen
>> Cardiovascular diseases will cause the degeneration of your arteries and will usually result in a heart attack, heart stroke, and vascular disease. Assessments of the illness may be ideal for anyone aged over 30 (adults).
>> Having a low risk of contracting these diseases won’t fully put you in the all-clear, so consider taking approved medications, following a healthy and balanced diet, and reporting for regular check-ups.
>> Echocardiogram is an ultrasound technology for live pictures of the heart that performed before and after the heart is stressed. During exercise and meditation, the heart beats quickly, resulting in us not being able to complete a 2D Echocardiogram.
Treadmill Stress ECG Test
>> Treadmill stress test also called a cardiac stress test, or exercise electrocardiogram, involves walking on a treadmill at increasing levels of difficulty. At the same time, the heartbeat, blood pressure, and electrocardiography monitored to determine if there is adequate blood flow to the heart while stressed.
Cardiac CT Scan
>> A cardiac CT scan is a painless test that uses X-rays to take detailed 3D model pictures of your heart and its blood vessels.
Cardiac Rubidium PET Scan
>> Rubidium PET Scan, also called PET Myocardial, evaluates the blood flow through arteries to the heart where cells are more active.
