Cardiovascular Screening: Blood Test

Dr. Deepa Sharma, Family Medicine Physician at Baptist Health Primary Care, explains blood tests are a type of cardiovascular screening. "I personally think the simplest are blood pressure screenings and body mass index based on height and weight. Those would be the least invasive technically, but blood tests are important," she says.

She points out the importance of knowing your cholesterol levels in cardiovascular health and screening tests can protect you from developing diseases or organ damage in an asymptomatic condition.
