The Cardiac Risk Assessment is a collection of cardiac-related exams. You should take the Cardiac Risk Assessment if you are overweight, have an unhealthy lifestyle, have a significant family history of heart disease, or have any lifestyle disorders such as diabetes, hypertension, or high cholesterol.
A Cardiac Risk Assessment can help patients prevent difficulties and identify potential heart issues. The Cardiac Risk Assessment consists of 12 examinations that examine the following areas:
The overall quantity of cholesterol in a patient’s system is measured via a lipid profile.
Cardiac risk markers – Aids in the detection of abnormalities in a number of blood parameters and inflammatory markers linked to an increased risk of heart disease.
Homocysteine levels: High homocysteine levels are caused by damage to the inner lining of your blood vessels. This type of damage raises the likelihood of clotting and suggests a higher risk of heart disease and atherosclerosis.
A sphygmomanometer measures the force of blood against the artery walls of the heart for cardiology tests. Pulse rates are recorded at rest (diastolic) and when working (systolic).
