We Treat the Hearts of Texas

We know you’ve heard this tune before — that heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. But it’s worth repeating, because while symptoms vary widely for men and women, most heart attack sufferers had no previous symptoms. So it’s crucial to know your personal risk factors and take steps to decrease them.

Take the Heart Risk Assessment

What are the symptoms of a heart attack?

  • Pain or discomfort in the
    • Chest
    • Arms or shoulders
    • Jaw, neck, upper abdomen or back
  • Shortness of breath
  • Feeling weak, light-headed or faint

Other symptoms (more common in women) can include extreme, unexplained fatigue, heartburn, nausea and/or vomiting. If you have any of these symptoms, call 911.

Know your risk for heart attack


What's a normal heart rate?

Your heart rate, or pulse, is the number of times your heart beats per minute. The healthier your heart, the slower your pulse, since your heart doesn’t have to work as hard to pump blood. A normal resting heart rate is typically between 60 to 100 beats per minute; a trained athlete may have one as low as 40. To check your pulse, put your finger on the inside of your wrist or elbow or on the side of your neck and count the number of beats in 60 seconds. Check your pulse regularly so you can be aware of any changes.
