SafeHeart’s cardiovascular screens test for
early risk of stroke, heart attack,
peripheral vascular disease and abdominal
aortic aneurysm. All five screens are
non-invasive, require no disrobing, and are
painless. SafeHeart Health Screens has
developed a unique screening procedure that
enables participants to have all five
screens done in one location and in under 15
minutes. SafeHeart Health Screens’ reporting
procedure enables us to have Results Reports
to screening participants within 14 days.
Prices for all five screens range from $119
for a closed corporation/organization
screening to $129 for an open community
screening. These costs are significantly
less that what would be charged in a
hospital or clinic setting.
Five Screens to Good Health
SafeHeart’s screens test for early risk of
stroke, heart attack, peripheral vascular
disease and abdominal aortic aneurysm.
Carotid Artery Disease Screen
The Carotid Artery Disease Screen uses
ultrasound and Doppler technology to screen
for plaque buildup and blockages in the
carotid arteries. Carotid artery disease is
the leading cause of stroke. In addition,
the presence of even minimal carotid artery
plaque is associated with a much higher
long-term risk of cardiovascular disease.
Carotid Intima Media Thickness Screen
The Carotid Intima Media Thickness Screen
uses ultrasound technology to obtain a
measurement of the thickness of the wall of
the carotid arteries. Carotid artery
thickness (CIMT) is a validated non–invasive
method to assess for early atherosclerosis.
An abnormal CIMT is associated with an
increased risk of heart disease and stroke.
Abdominal Aorta Aneurysm Screen
The Abdominal Aorta Aneurysm Screen uses
ultrasound technology to evaluate for an
abnormal enlargement of the abdominal aorta.
Aortic aneurysms are usually asymptomatic
until advanced when a rupture can be a
Atrial Fibrillation Screen
The Atrial Fibrillation Screen uses a rhythm strip analysis to evaluate the
presence of atrial fibrillation, a common
and often asymptomatic abnormal heart
rhythm, which can lead to blood clot
formation in the heart chambers leading to
increased risk of stroke. Approximately 15%
of strokes are a result of atrial
Peripheral Vascular Disease Screen
The Peripheral Vascular Disease Screen
measures the Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI) to
evaluate for decreased circulation to the
lower extremities. Persons with abnormal ABI
and peripheral vascular disease have a
higher risk of heart disease and stroke.
