Preventive Cardiology Consult

A preventive cardiological consultation is a medical evaluation carried out by a cardiologist with the aim of early detection of risk factors, heart conditions or cardiovascular problems in asymptomatic or apparently healthy people. The main objective of this consultation is to prevent cardiovascular diseases, which are one of the main causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide.

During the preventive cardiology consultation, the doctor will evaluate various aspects related to the patient's cardiovascular health. This may include reviewing personal and family medical history, performing a complete physical examination, taking blood pressure, evaluating lipid profile (cholesterol and triglyceride levels), measuring blood glucose, among others. Laboratory analysis.

In addition, the cardiologist may request additional tests, such as an electrocardiogram (ECG) or a stress test, to evaluate the function of the heart and detect possible abnormalities or early signs of cardiovascular disease. It can also provide recommendations for lifestyle changes, such as a healthy diet, regular exercise, weight control, and avoiding tobacco use.

It is important to note that a preventive cardiology consultation is especially recommended for people with cardiovascular risk factors, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, a family history of heart disease, smoking, high cholesterol levels, a sedentary lifestyle, or stress. However, even those with no apparent risk factors may benefit from a preventive cardiovascular evaluation, as some heart diseases can develop without prior symptoms.
