Heart Screening and preventive cardiology are important for maintaining good heart health. They consist of a series of tests and measures designed to detect and prevent heart diseases at an early stage. In this blog post, we will explore the significance of heart screening and preventive cardiology.


What is Heart Screening?

Heart screening, which is also known as cardiac screening, refers to a series of tests that are conducted to detect any possible conditions related to heart function. These tests are usually carried out before any symptoms develop and are meant to identify potential cardiac issues as a preventive measure.


A comprehensive heart screening would involve measuring your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and blood sugar levels, and asking questions about your health status. When combined with a treadmill ECG, this can help determine your future risk of cardiovascular disease and enable us to create tailored preventive strategies accordingly.


What is Preventive Cardiology?

Preventive Cardiology is a field of medicine that focuses on preventing and treating heart disease and stroke. This involves managing your blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels effectively.


Adopting a healthy lifestyle through practices such as including enough fruits and vegetables in your diet and regular exercise is highly recommended. In case these measures don't work, we may need to use medications to help control your cardiovascular risk factors.


Why are Heart Screening and Preventive Cardiology Important?

Heart disease is one of the most common causes of death across the world.


However, early detection through heart screening can significantly prevent complications such as heart failure, stroke, kidney disease, and artery disease by providing timely treatment.


Preventive cardiology can also help minimise the risk of serious ailments like heart attack and stroke from occurring in the first place.


Heart screening and preventive cardiology are essential to maintain a healthy heart. They offer valuable insights into cardiovascular health, helping diagnose and treat various heart conditions.
