Your heart plays a crucial role in your health. That’s why AnMed Health Heart and Vascular Care emphasizes treating your heart well every day, and if something feels wrong, to intervene promptly and test regularly. That starts with routine blood pressure checks. According to the CDC, 75% of American adults with high blood pressure do not have it under control, and in 2019, high blood pressure was a primary or contributing cause of death for 516,955 people in the United States. With February being American Heart Month, now is a good time to get your blood pressure checked. You can do it yourself, go to a pharmacy or see your doctor. If you don't already have a doctor, call AnMed Health WellnessConnect at 864.512.3748 for help with making an appointment or visit AnMedHealth.org/Doctors to learn more.

Diagnosing Heart and Vascular Conditions

Heart and vascular conditions include a range of conditions that affect your heart and circulatory system. Our commitment to you begins with an accurate diagnosis at AnMed Health’s Heart and Vascular Center in Anderson. We use state-of-the-art imaging technology, as well as comprehensive physical exams, to assess the condition of your heart and develop the most effective treatment plan.

Your diagnosis may include three parts:

  1. Vascular score. This includes a set of three screenings that assess your heart and vascular health. These screenings look for signs of arterial disease, aortal aneurisms, and blockages in your carotid arteries. Our diagnostic standards have been accredited by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission. 

  2. Stress testing. We measure your heart’s response to exertion. A board-certified cardiologist will guide you through a series of exercises that measure how well your heart responds under pressure, which help us to identify areas of concern. 

  3. Echocardiograms. These offer a more detailed look into your heart. A probe, called a transducer, passes over your chest to listen for the “echo” of your heart. The sound translates into images that show the size, shape, and function of your heart. This enables us to find potential problems in the chambers of your heart that could otherwise go undetected.
