Detection and Prevention

Detection and Prevention In Content graphicCardiovascular disease or CVD accounts for one in three deaths in this country. These high numbers highlight the importance of prevention and early detection. Choices we make every day influence the quality of our health and well-being. By knowing our family history and making heart healthy lifestyle decisions, we may be able to delay the onset or even prevent cardiovascular disease. Understanding some of the most common heart conditions may help us recognize early signs and symptoms of heart trouble in our own health or those we love. Regular screenings, scheduled well check-ups with our health care providers, and good dental hygiene are steps we can take to live full and healthy lives.

Keep in the swing of life. Take the right steps to keep your heart healthy with preventive care and early detection.

Premier Health Heart CT - Find Heart Disease Before Heart Disease Finds You

Unfortunately, in its earliest and most treatable stages, heart disease rarely reveals itself through symptoms. According to the American Heart AssociationOff Site Icon, approximately every 40 seconds an American will have a heart attack. For many people, a heart attack is their first clue of trouble.

Heart disease is the number one killer of men and women. Does heart disease or stroke run in your family? Have you ever been told your blood pressure or cholesterol levels are too high? Do you smoke? With all of this in mind, you may be wondering how much you’re at risk of having a heart attack. Your concern could be answered by a Premier Health Heart CT, also known as coronary calcium scoring. This is a non-invasive imaging test that takes less than 30 minutes of your time. Don’t wait for chest pain and other symptoms to warn you of trouble – find heart disease before it finds you.

  • No needles. No dyes. No exercise. You don’t even have to change your clothes.
  • Cost is $99, payable at the time of your scan.
  • The Heart CT can be performed in under 30 minutes.
  • Results will be sent to your health care provider.
  • Convenient locations from Miami to Butler and Warren Counties.

Schedule your Heart CT by calling (937) 499-7364 (937) 499-7364 or (855) 887-7364(855) 887-7364 (toll free).

Diagnosing a Problem

Based on your medical history, physician exam, and symptoms, your health care provider may need to take a closer look at your heart’s health. Cardiac testing, lab work, and advanced imaging may be prescribed to reach a diagnosis.

Premier Health offers a number of cardiac tests. Appointments are made by calling Premier Health’s Central Scheduling at (937) 499-7364 (937) 499-7364 or (855) 887-7364(855) 887-7364 (toll free).

Heart Attack Warning Signs

Not all heart attacks are the same. Some are sudden and dramatic, and leave no doubt that the individual is in trouble. Other heart attacks are subtle and quiet, with little or no pain. Both can cause a lot of damage. Would you recognize a heart attack and be ready to help?
