Cardiac Risk Assessment Test
What is a heart check up or cardiac risk assessment test?
The saying goes that prevention is always better than cure. A heart check up is very helpful for healthy people who want to prevent the development of any cardiovascular diseases and make changes to their lifestyle based on the findings. Some people may also have no idea they are at risk for developing cardiovascular disease in the near future. A cardiac risk assessment test can detect a disease at the earliest to provide the best care and prevent further complications in the early stages of a disease. These types of tests are also known as heart screening tests.
In the case of cardiovascular diseases, a large number of factors work together to help determine who is at risk and who isn't. Some of the important indicators of cardiac risk are age, family history, lifestyle factors such as smoking, diet and frequency of exercise, weight, and other already existing conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes.
What does a heart check up measure?
A cardiac risk assessment or heart check up tests are for people who have no signs of cardiovascular or coronary artery disease. Once the initial intake and family history is taken, heart screening tests are given to further assess possible risk factors. They are used to measure the following criteria:
- Blood glucose levels, which measured the amount of sugar present in the blood. This is measured with a blood test.
- The amount of c-reactive protein in the blood, which is higher when there is inflammation or swelling anywhere in the body with a test called hs-crp assay. It is covered in the blood test
- Blood pressure levels, which is the force of blood against the artery walls in the heart. Both the resting heart rate (diastolic) and the working heart rate (systolic) are measured with a sphygmomanometer.
- The amount of cholesterol in the body. There are two types: low density lipoproteins, which are the bad kind and whose buildup in the body leads to blockages in the artery; and high density lipoproteins, which is the good kind that absorbs cholesterol and flushes it out of the body through the liver. A lipid panel test is used for this and it is the most important test in the initial screening to evaluate risk of cardiac complications in the future.
What types of tests are used in a heart check up?
A blood test and a blood pressure test are the initial screening tests, but based on their results, more tests may be needed to further evaluate risk factors:
- Electrocardiography (EKG), which measures the electrical activity of the heart
- Echocardiography, which is an ultrasound of the heart
- Exercise cardiac stress test, which measures heart rate when a person is made to exercise on a treadmill at the lab/clinic.
- Coronary catheter angiography, which takes pictures of the blood flow through the heart and check for any blockages or narrowing of the arteries
- Myocardial perfusion imaging, where a small amount of radioactive material helps to understand how the blood flows through the heart during rest and exercise
- Coronary CT angiography, where an intravenous dye is inserted into the heart to get 3D images of the arteries to check the extent of plaque buildup.
