The Vascular System 

The vascular system consists of arteries and veins that circulate blood throughout the body. Arteries carry oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the cells of the body’s tissues. Veins return the blood from the body back to the heart. The vascular system is vital to your body’s everyday day function impacting your respiratory, digestive and urinary systems and helping your body maintain temperature control.

Vascular diseases affect the veins and arteries, often reducing or obstructing blood flow due to blockage or damage. Each disease has characteristics that make it different than the others, but there are common controllable risk factors for all:

  • Tobacco usage
  • Cholesterol levels
  • Blood pressure
  • Exercise and fitness
  • Diet and nutrition

Vascular Screening Risk Assessment

Vascular disease occurs when there is an interruption to normal blood flow within the body’s circulatory system. A lack of blood flow and oxygen to your brain, heart, lungs or limbs can be life threatening. Therefore, it is important to understand your risk for this serious disease.

Schedule your complete screening to help determine your risk level and take control of your vascular health.  Vascular screening package and schedule
