guerrieri heart and vascular institute

Heart disease is the no. 1 killer of Americans, but screening and understanding of lifestyle and risk factors can help to reduce that number. That’s why Peninsula Regional Medical Center’s Guerrieri Heart & Vascular Institute has started to offer the new Heart Smart heart disease risk assessment for both men and women.

Appointments are available every Tuesday and Thursday morning at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, as well as on the mornings of August 29 and 31 onboard the Wagner Wellness Van at the Delmarva Health Pavilion Ocean Pines, located outside the North Gate at 11101 Cathage Road.

The comprehensive screenings include:

  • Cholesterol, HDL, triglycerides, fasting blood glucose

  • Resting 12-lead EKG

  • Body fat and body mass index

  • Waist to hip ratio

  • Blood pressure testing

  • Pulse oximetry testing

  • 10-year risk analysis

  • Review of current medications

  • Follow-up care plan

  • Exercise/nutrition recommendations

People choosing to participate must not currently be under the care of a cardiologist or have a known history of heart disease. A 12-hour fast is required before the appointment. Call 410-543-7026 to schedule your free Heart Smart screening.
