Empowering Healthcare



The heart is a little organ that circulates blood throughout your body. It is the main organ of your circulatory system. Electrical impulses propel four major sections (chambers) of your heart. Understanding your risk, making healthy choices, and making efforts to lower your chances of having heart disease are all part of living a heart-healthy lifestyle. Adopting preventive actions can reduce your risk of heart disease.

Your doctor or physician may prescribe standard diagnostic tests to diagnose heart disorders after a health check-up. Specific heart tests offered include the Lipid profile, Cardiac screen panels, Cardiac injury profiles (mini & maxi), Cardiac risk profile, Heart failure profile Maxi, and Atherosclerosis profiles 1, 2 & 3.

Cardiac Test Overview

Heart is one of the vital organs of the body and cardiac function is important for overall health. There are various predisposing factors to cardiac disorders like age, hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol, family history etc. Myocardial infarction is a cardiac condition, where there is temporary or permanent cessation of the blood supply to the heart muscles. This is also referred to as a heart attack. A Cardiac Screen is a comprehensive panel that includes tests to measure the common parameters that assess the heart function and identify factors that could increase the risk of a coronary artery disease. 

Heart disease is becoming increasingly common. But the good thing is that cardiovascular disease may be mostly avoided. Heart disease risks can be reduced by being conscious of one’s lifestyle factors and understanding how to manage them.

The heart is one of the body’s most significant organs, and cardiac health is crucial. A number of factors can lead to heart problems, such as:

  • Age.
  • Hypertension.
  • Diabetes.
  • Cholesterol.
  • Family history.

A myocardial infarction is a cardiac disorder in which the blood flow to the heart muscles is temporarily or permanently cut off. This also goes by the name “heart attack.” A thorough panel of tests known as a “cardiac screen” measures the common parameters used to evaluate heart function and spot risk factors for coronary artery disease.

Lipid Screen Cholesterol and Triglycerides Serum Overview

Cardiovascular disease is the top cause of death for heart attacks and strokes, in asymptomatic people. Risk factors including age, smoking status, hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol, and HDL cholesterol are used by physicians to identify individuals likely to have an ischemic event & to evaluate cardiovascular risk. The test measures the Cholesterol and Triglyceride levels.

A cholesterol and triglycerides serum test is particularly important to keep a check on cardiovascular diseases.

When you eat, your body turns any calories that aren’t immediately used into triglycerides. Triglycerides are accumulated in the fat cells of your body. Hormones then release triglycerides for energy between meals.

If you consume high-carbohydrate diets regularly, your triglyceride levels may be high, which results in a condition known as hypertriglyceridemia. On the other hand, if you have a high level of LDL or bad cholesterol in the body, it results in a condition known as hypercholesterolemia. This causes fats to collect around your arteries and puts you at a higher risk for heart strokes.
