Chest Pain Protocols
Is it heartburn – or a heart attack? A fast answer to that question could save your life. If you feel chest pain, our emergency department provides prompt care. Special protocols and testing help our team quickly diagnose whether a patient is experiencing a heart attack.
Cardiac catheterization helps doctors evaluate how well the heart is functioning and whether there are blockages in the arteries. During the procedure, physicians insert a very thin flexible tube into a major artery and navigate it to the arteries around the heart. Using advanced imaging technology, doctors can see whether there is plaque build-up in the heart’s vessels. If blockages exist, an Interventional Cardiologist will use treatments such as angioplasty or stent placements to restore better blood flow. Since cardiac catheterization is a minimally invasive procedure, most patients feel better within hours, and some can go home the same day.
Our hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art technology that can produce clear, detailed views of the human heart and help doctors detect heart disease with pinpoint accuracy. Our advanced diagnostic testing capabilities include:
64-slice CT scanner
Nuclear medicine cameras
Holter and event monitoring
Don’t Let Tired, Painful Legs Slow You Down
If you suffer from leg pain, you may be at risk for PAD (Peripheral Arterial Disease). A quick leg screening using an ankle-brachial index (ABI) to compare blood pressure readings in the ankles with those in the arms can help identify possible blood flow issues and diagnose this painful condition.
PAD Risk Factors
- Painful cramping
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Personal or family history of heart or vascular disease
- Black and Hispanic ethnicity
