Preventive Cardiology

Star in your Screen Test 

Heart disease is the leading killer of women in America, causing one in three deaths each year. The preventive cardiology program is designed to help women identify and understand their personal risk for heart disease. Despite the fact that a patient’s basic labs may be normal, more detailed evaluation can help determine if there is an unidentified, but increased risk.

Screening includes:

  • Rhythm Assessment
  • Cholesterol Panel
  • Blood Sugar
  • Body Mass Index (BMI)
  • Waist Circumference
  • Carotid Artery Screen
  • Risk Assessment and Recommendation
  • Immediate Results

To schedule for screening, please contact The Jean & David Blechman Center for Specialty Care and Preventive Cardiology at 561.955.2131. Cost for screening is $125.

 

WHO WILL BENEFIT?

This program is designed for women who are asymptomatic, but are at intermediate or high risk for heart disease based on the American Heart Association’s latest criteria. Despite the fact that a patient’s basic labs may be normal, more detailed tests can help specialists determine if there is an unidentified, but increased risk.

IS THE EVALUATION COVERED BY INSURANCE?

The evaluation is not covered by insurance as it is targeted to help better stratify a woman’s risk. However, if clinical conditions are identified most plans will cover the management and treatment of those health issues.

CARDIAC RISK ASSESSMENT

Do you have a personal history or family history in a first or second degree relative of premature cardiovascular disease?
Do you have hypercholesterolemia or hyperlipidemia?
Do you have diabetes?
Do you smoke?
Do you have a body mass index > 29?
Answer only if you have been pregnant:
Did you have any of the following during pregnancy: hypertension, pre-eclampsia, eclampsia or gestational diabetes?
Did you have a small for gestational age baby or a spontaneous preterm delivery?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you may be at increased risk for heart disease.
