What are Cardiovascular Screenings?
This three-part screening is offered to detect any potential cardiovascular diseases. These tests are painless, non-invasive, and comprised of the following screenings:
Carotid Artery Disease/Stroke Screening
This test uses a Doppler to measure blood flow in the carotid arteries of the neck.
It will detect blocked circulation to the brain.
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening
This screening uses an ultrasound to measure the size of the large blood vessel (aorta) in your abdomen.
It will detect if you have an aneurysm, which is when the lining of the aorta is enlarged within the abdomen.
Peripheral Arterial Disease Screening
This test measures the pressure in your arms and legs by performing blood pressures with a small ultrasound device.
It indicates how well blood flows to the legs.
There is a $65.00 fee that includes all three screenings and pre-registration is required. For more information and to register, please contact the Bayhealth Education Department at 302-744-7135 or 1-877-453-7107.
