90% of Australians have at least 1 risk factor for Cardiovascular Disease.
There are multiple risk factors for cardiovascular risk. These need to be considered in combination and not in isolation. Small changes in multiple risk factors often have a large impact on cardiovascular risk, rather than a large change in one risk factor.
Through our Screening and Risk Assessment at Capital Chemist O'Connor our Pharmacists can help you keep track of your heart health with one or more of the services below:
Have your heart health checked by getting your Blood Pressure tested, BMI calculated, waist measured and answering some simple lifestyle questions.

What about your Good Cholesterol Ratio?
Blood Pressure Testing
Hypertension is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease such as stroke, coronary heart disease, heart failure and peripheral vascular disease. Chronic kidney disease and diabetes also impact on progression and risk of complications.
Our pharmacy runs a program called 10 for 10. For just $10 you get 10 blood pressure checks over a period of time and one on one time with a Pharmacist to discuss your readings. We are also able to print out results for you to take to your Doctor if needed.
