Things You Should Know

Who needs to be screened?
  • Between the ages of 45 and 64, one in nine women develop symptoms of some form of cardiovascular disease. After age 65, the ratio climbs to one in three women, according to the National Center for Health Statistics.
  • Anyone who presents with signs and symptoms of heart disease should be screened, regardless of age, but generally women should be aggressively screened for cardiovascular disease at age>40.
  • Patients aged 20 years or older without established cardiovascular disease (CVD) should undergo periodic cardiovascular risk assessment every three to five years.
What screenings are important to prevent heart disease?
  • To reduce your chances of heart disease, it is important to get regular screenings for blood pressure and cholesterol. Also, talk to your healthcare provider about whether you should be tested for diabetes.
