Hospital Holds Vascular Screening

Posted: Updated:
February is National Heart Awareness Month. Because of this St. Alexius held a free vascular screening session yesterday that was open to the public. 

Employees at the hospital say getting a vascular screening is a good idea at any time of the year because they're small tests that could save a life. 

"We do a series of blood pressures," says community outreach coordinator, Sandy Tschosik. "We compare the blood pressure in your arm and your leg - it's called an ABI test, and that just kind of gives us an idea if there might be some blockage in the lower extremities or perifial artery disease."
