heart screening is an accurate and affordable way to evaluate if you have
hidden risks of cardiac disease. Classic symptoms of heart problems are chest
pain, palpitations, breathlessness, loss of consciousness and others. The risk
factors for coronary artery disease which are quite linked, include: smoking,
having high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, being
overweight or obese, living a sedentary lifestyle and family history
if you do not present with any symptoms or do not have the above-mentioned risk
factors, this does not mean you do not have heart disease. Early detection is
often the best way to manage heart disease, and with a simple evaluation your
doctor will be able to design a preventative plan for you.
cardiovascular screening involves a series of tests which aims to detect heart
disease at an early stage and may include laboratory blood tests, imaging tests
as well as specialised cardiac tests to determine your risk profile.
