Cardiovascular Testing Q & A

by Vlad Nusinovich, MD

What is cardiovascular disease?

Cardiovascular disease is a condition that affects your heart and blood vessels. Left undiagnosed and untreated, it can cause heart attack, stroke and even death. In the U.S., heart disease is the number one killer of both men and women.

How can I tell if I have cardiovascular disease?

Some people have symptoms like chest pain, shortness of breath, dizziness, pain in the arm, back or shoulder, irregular heart beat, or other signs or symptoms, but others may experience no symptoms at all. For instance, many people suffer from high blood pressure, one of the primary risk factors for heart disease, yet they have no idea their blood pressure is elevated until they visit their doctor.

What are the risk factors for cardiovascular disease?

Risk factors include health issues like high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels, genetic factors such as a family history of heart disease, and lifestyle factors like smoking or obesity. Dr. Nusinovich can help identify your risk factors during your appointment, as well as offering guidance for helping you reduce your risks for cardiovascular disease.

How can cardiovascular testing help me stay healthy?

Cardiovascular testing is designed to check for the telltale signs that can indicate you may be suffering from cardiovascular disease. Many men and women have cardiovascular disease without even knowing it, which means they may suffer a heart attack, stroke or other event without knowing they were at risk. Cardiovascular testing can help identify risk factors so you can take steps to decrease your risk of cardiovascular disease. If you've already been diagnosed with cardiovascular disease, testing can help ensure your treatment is working the way its intended as well as guide new or additional treatment approaches that may be more effective.
