Heart and vascular screening at Skagit Regional Health in Mount Vernon, WA.The Skagit Regional Heart & Vascular Institute, a partnership of Skagit Valley Hospital, Skagit Regional Clinics - Cardiology and Skagit Radiology, offers a community screening for all adults over age 18 held on Tuesday mornings.

Attend this screening to find out your risk of PAD, cardiovascular disease and stroke and learn how to reduce it. The screening includes the following tests and results are immediate:

  • Ankle brachial pressure index to help detect peripheral artery disease (no caffeine or nicotine for one hour prior).
  • Blood pressure.
  • Full lipid profile for cholesterol plus glucose requires 12 – 14 hour fast, water and medications only (no alcohol 24 hours prior.) This is a fingerstick test with immediate results.
  • Body composition testing to detect elevated body fat and body mass index (BMI).
  • Review results with a health care provider.
     

A physician referral is not necessary, although we ask that you provide the name of a primary care provider, if you have one, so results can be forwarded.
