Executive heart health is a cardiology subspecialty that works to identify underlying cardiovascular conditions in busy professionals.
At Upper East Side Cardiology, the team provides executive heart health to a wide range of business and community leaders, including:
You might also qualify for executive heart health if you’re a medical professional, like a doctor or a dentist.
If you’re a business or community leader, you’ve got a long to-do list and dozens of responsibilities. Your employees, colleagues, and fellow professionals rely on you to keep things running. But if you have an underlying medical condition that affects your heart, you’re also more likely to experience a heart attack or stroke.
Executive health uses routine preventive screenings, lab work, and physical exams to identify potential issues. If the team discovers anything that increases your risk of a heart-related medical condition, they make treatment recommendations.
At Upper East Side Cardiology, an executive heart health visit includes the following:
An EKG is a noninvasive test that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture images of your heart. It provides a safe and convenient way to determine if you’ve had a heart attack.
An ECHO is a noninvasive test that’s similar to an EKG. The difference is that it captures images of the blood flowing through your heart and heart valves. ECHOs can detect blockages or valve abnormalities.
A cardiac stress test monitors your heartbeat and respiratory rate during exercise. The team might ask you to walk on a treadmill for several minutes to help identify blockages in your arteries.
A carotid artery ultrasound is a noninvasive test that determines your risk of a stroke. It uses high-frequency sound waves to assess the amount of plaque (fatty buildup) in your veins and arteries.
A cholesterol profile is a blood test that analyzes the fats in your blood, including “bad” cholesterol, “good” cholesterol, and triglycerides. If your cholesterol levels are outside the recommended numbers, your provider makes treatment recommendations.
The team at Upper East Side Cardiology might ask about the meals and snacks you eat. They use that information to identify unwanted calories and/or other ingredients that might affect the health of your heart, like sodium or saturated fat.
It’s crucial to exercise, even if you’re busy. The team at Upper East Side Cardiology can recommend a workout routine that aligns with your schedule.
