Most people don't realize they're at risk for a life-threatening condition like stroke until it actually happens to them. This is because many of the risk factors for stroke go unnoticed. Stroke Risk Assessments offered at Advocate South Suburban Hospital are a quick and easy way to identify conditions that may contribute to stroke. The assessment costs $50 and includes:
- blood pressure reading
- cholesterol test
- heart rhythm test
- carotid artery scan
In addition, South Suburban Hospital also offers a combined Heart and Stroke Risk Assessment. This assessment costs $75 includes all the above elements in addition to:
- EKG exercise test
- body fat analysis
- total cholesterol and glucose test
Within an hour, both tests are examined by a cardiologist and a vascular surgeon, then forwarded to your doctor. If you're over 50, we strongly suggest you get checked for both heart and stroke risk.
