Preventive Cardiology

What is preventive cardiology?

Preventive cardiology can stop you from suffering serious heart complications and possible death from heart-related problems.   

When it comes to caring for your heart and overall wellness, the Corrielus Cardiology team places a great emphasis on preventive cardiology. This begins with a comprehensive assessment of your risk for heart disease.

Many heart disease risk factors are controllable and treatable, including:

  • Dietary habits
  • Stress management
  • Exercise
  • Smoking habits

Preventive cardiology can provide invaluable information about the ways your lifestyle is contributing to your heart health.

What does preventive cardiology involve?

Preventive cardiology involves having cardiac screening and evaluation, including a comprehensive assessment of all of your cardiovascular risk factors.

Preventive screening includes cardiac tests to assess your heart function. Typical tests that you might need include:

  • Blood pressure readings
  • Measurement of blood glucose levels
  • Lipid level evaluation
  • Noninvasive stress testing
  • Doppler ultrasound
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG/ECG) procedures

These tests look at the way your heart is functioning and how well blood is flowing to and from your heart. The information from screening tests helps identify any risks you have for heart disease.

If the team finds anomalies that require further investigation, they can conduct additional tests like an echocardiogram (an ultrasound of your heart).

How can I use preventive cardiology to improve my heart health?

The results of your preventive cardiology screening can act as a major wake-up call. Knowing you have risk factors like excess body weight, high cholesterol levels, and high blood pressure can motivate you to make healthier lifestyle choices toward reducing your risk of heart disease.

The experienced team at Corrielus Cardiology can provide you with the tools you need to live a heart-healthy life and use noninvasive therapies to slow or stop the progression of heart disease.

They take a uniquely collaborative approach to your cardiovascular care and can diagnose and treat most heart conditions as well as improve your overall wellness.

Is it possible to avoid heart disease using preventive cardiology? 

Preventing heart disease is definitely possible when you receive the right information about your risk factors at an early stage and know how to recognize the symptoms of heart disease.

Fortunately, many forms of heart disease are preventable, and most are treatable using conservative measures early on. This is especially true of conditions like atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease.

Preventive cardiology is, therefore, a vital weapon in the fight against heart disease.
