  1. Find a physician you trust

It is important to have a physician you trust that can provide you with diagnostic testing and treatments for your cardiac care needs. Our cardiologists at Carson Valley Medical Center can assist you with necessary screenings and prescribed treatments.

  1. Schedule screenings

Screenings save lives – it’s as simple as that. Our cardiology and heart health department utilizes state-of-the-art imaging technologies to provide services such as echocardiography, which helps physicians view the heart and detect any concerns. Talk to your cardiologist about which types of screenings you may need, and how frequently you should be receiving them.

  1. Understand any extra senior care that may be needed

Carson Valley Medical Center offers comprehensive medical care for seniors aged 65 and older. With advanced age comes more preventative measures that must be taken in order to achieve optimal health. This is because the body is more susceptible to disease and natural “wear and tear” over time, which could cause certain conditions to develop. Our cardiologists are experts in senior care and preventative screening, and they can help you understand exactly what tests and procedures you’ll need to undergo to keep your heart healthy.

  1. Consult with a physician about heart healthy foods

Did you know that certain foods can promote heart health and decrease the risk of developing heart disease? Our cardiologists can provide recommendations in areas such as diet, nutrition, and lifestyle to help you set yourself up for improved cardiac wellness.

  1. Exercise, exercise, exercise

Physical activity is great for overall heart health. Exercise allows the muscles to pull oxygen from the blood, thus lowering heart rate and blood pressure. Your cardiologist can discuss ways to get you moving to help enhance your cardiac wellness.
