Heart attack care
We promise to do our jobs, and it is important for you to do yours, too. Make sure you and your loved ones learn the symptoms of a heart attack. When experiencing a heart attack or cerebrovascular accident (stroke), the longer a person goes without medical treatment, the greater the risk of permanent damage or even death.
Some heart attacks may occur suddenly with an intense pain in the chest, but most begin subtly, with only mild pain or discomfort. The following are signs that can mean a heart attack is happening:
- Chest discomfort
- Discomfort in other areas of the upper body
- Shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort
- Cold sweat
If you or someone you know are experiencing these symptoms, call 911 immediately.
Cardiac diagnostic services
We offer tests to assist your physician in diagnosing heart disease. Usually performed on an outpatient basis, Medical City McKinney's comprehensive array of heart diagnostic services includes:
- Stress lab
- Computed tomography (CT) scanner
- Nuclear medicine studies
- Electrocardiogram (EKG)
Electrophysiology is the study of the electrical activity in the heart—essentially, how your heart beats. Cardiologists at Medical City McKinney who specialize in electrophysiology lead the way in treating the many forms of atrial fibrillation and cardiac arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythms).
A cardiac electrophysiology study is a test that records the electrical activity and pathways of the heart. These studies are done to assess abnormal electrocardiograms, evaluate complex arrhythmias, clarify symptoms, determine the risk of developing arrhythmias in the future and tailor appropriate treatment.
Interventional cardiology involves catheter-based treatment of heart disease. Most interventional cardiology procedures are considered to be minimally invasive, with most incisions only being approximately a half inch or less in length.
Medical City McKinney offers complete diagnostic resources, including two cardiac procedures suites where cardiac catheterizations are performed. This diagnostic tool is important for a number of reasons, including its ability to:
- Locate narrowing or blockages in the coronary arteries
- Gauge blood flow and blood pressure in the chambers of the heart
- Determine how well the heart valves function
- Check for abnormalities in heart wall movement
Cardiovascular surgeons focus on integrated, multidisciplinary patient care. By working closely with specialists in cardiology, vascular and cardiothoracic critical care, surgeons are able to provide personalized treatment plans for the best long-term outcome and quality of life for patients who have heart and vascular surgery.
A team of specialists perform a variety of advanced procedures, including:
- Coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), an open heart surgery
- Stent placement
- Valve replacement and repair
- Intervention for congestive heart failure
- Thoracic aortic surgery to repair aneurysms and perform aortic dissections
