Heart attack warning signs
Our cardiac care program features advanced techniques for heart attack care. When a heart attack occurs, the heart cannot get the required oxygen for proper function. The quicker the blockage causing the heart attack can be removed, the better chance of reducing damage to the heart muscle. The heart care team is on call 24/7 and responds within minutes to minimize heart damage.
Please seek emergency care if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, which may be signs of a heart attack:
- Discomfort in the chest that lasts more than a few minutes
- Pain or discomfort radiating to one or both arms, the back, neck or jaw
- Shortness of breath
- Cold sweat
- Abdominal pain
- Nausea or vomiting
Sometimes, patients who have experienced a heart attack had no previous symptoms. It's important to know your personal risk factors and the steps you can take to reduce them.
Heart screening and imaging
Diagnostic tests are typically ordered to assist your physician with diagnosing heart disease and are usually performed on an outpatient basis. Medical City Lewisville's comprehensive cardiac diagnostic services include:
- Stress lab
- Computerized tomography (CT) scan
- Cardiac stress magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Nuclear medicine studies
- Electrocardiogram (EKG)
- Cardiac catheterization
Medical City Lewisville offers specialized studies of the heart—specifically, advanced cardiac interventional services, including percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). PCI is a procedure in which a special catheter is inserted into a blocked coronary artery to open it up and allow blood to circulate to the heart muscle. During PCI, cardiac catheterization is used.
Cardiac catheterization functions as an invaluable diagnostic tool 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 defects in the way the wall of the heart moves
