WorkplaceTesting explains Cardiovascular Disease Risk Assessment
A cardiovascular disease risk assessment focuses on the health of a person's heart and circulatory system. A cardiovascular risk assessment may be used as a preventive tool to help individuals become more aware of their current heart health. As part of a workplace wellness program, a cardiovascular health assessment may identify individuals who are at risk and encourage them to make healthy lifestyle changes. Biometric measures such as a person's blood pressure and cholesterol are considered when conducting cardiovascular disease risk assessment. Information such as daily stress levels, use of tobacco products and alcohol, and dietary and exercise habits, along with biometric data, all contribute to a complete cardiovascular risk assessment.
