Chest Pain Response
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 processes for people with chest pain 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 blocked arteries. During the procedure, a cardiologist inserts a very thin flexible tube into a major vein and navigates it to the arteries around the heart. Using advanced imaging technology, the doctors can see whether there is plaque build-up in the heart’s vessels. 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:
- Cardiac PET CT scan
- MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
- Nuclear medicine cameras
- Stress testing
- Holter and event monitoring
