What is a stroke risk assessment?

Stroke risk is calculated using several factors:

  • Blood pressure
  • Atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat)
  • Smoking
  • Cholesterol levels
  • Exercise
  • Diabetes
  • Diet
  • History of stroke in the family

Our trained Abington Health nurses will assess your risk for stroke using these factors and advise you on how to minimize your risk.  They will also teach you how to recognize the symptoms of a stroke and when to call 911.  A blood pressure screening is included. This program is free of charge.
