Floyd Valley Healthcare conducts annual public health screenings that include:
- Cholesterol and diabetes screenings
- Hearing screenings
- Skin cancer screenings
- Stroke screenings: Participants are offered three separate screenings at $40 each, or sign up for all three screenings for $95.
- Carotid artery/stroke screenings: The carotid arteries are the main arteries in the neck that supply blood to the brain. Carotid artery stenosis, also called carotid artery disease, is a major risk factor for stroke. This test screens the carotid arteries for plaque buildup that can cause the carotid arteries to narrow.
- Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) screenings: An abdominal aortic aneurysm is a weak spot and bulge in the aorta, a major artery in the abdomen. Patients often have no symptoms, which means that an aneurysm can go undetected. Aneurysms are dangerous because they may burst. This test screens for an enlargement or aneurysm of the abdominal aortic artery.
- Peripheral artery disease/ankle brachial index (ABI) screenings: In peripheral artery disease (PAD), fatty deposits build up along artery walls and affect blood circulation, mainly in arteries leading to the legs and feet. PAD can be a predictor of increased risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease and death. This test will evaluate blood flow to determine if there is sufficient flow from the heart to the arms and legs.
