A one stop shop: the impact of point-of-care lipid testing on cardiovascular disease screening and management


Join a panel of experts from all over the world to learn the impact point-of-care (POC) lipid testing can have on cardiovascular disease management. The experts will discuss POC lipid testing, and the impact it has had on their practice and patients.

Cardiovascular diseases are a leading cause of death globally, taking 17.9 million lives each year. [1] Patients at risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) may show raised blood pressure, have diabetes or have high lipid levels.

The good news is, reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease (such as dyslipidemia, hypercholesterolemia and hypertriglyceridemia) is possible with lipid panel tests to identify risk, and continued testing for monitoring. Performing point-of-care testing during patient consultations provides a teachable moment for patients and can lead to better outcomes. [2] [3] [4]
