At Memorial Village ER, we are equipped to handle your cardiology emergency. Every minute counts in an emergency and chest pain should never be ignored. It’s important to remember that certain diseases such as hypertension and diabetes can mask chest pain, so if you are experiencing any other signs of a heart attack, seek medical attention.
Cardiology is the area of medicine that deals with issues of the heart. Medical problems such as stroke, hypertension, heart attack, congestive heart failure, and high blood pressure all fall under the umbrella of heart-related emergencies. At Memorial Village ER, we diagnose and treat:
Congestive Heart Failure
High Blood Pressure
Shortness of Breath
Many heart issues require emergency treatment, and emergency care for heart attack or heart failure can be successful if administered quickly. If you experience any of the following symptoms, you should take a trip to the emergency room immediately:
Shortness of breath
Pain that radiates down either arm
Dizziness or lightheadedness
Uncomfortable pressure or fullness in the chest
While heart attack and congestive heart failure are serious conditions, there are treatment options available. Heart failure and heart attack treatment can range from the surgical implantation of pacemakers and other devices to more simple lifestyle changes, such as avoiding salt and exercising. Rest assured that these conditions can be managed with the proper care.
Chest pain and heart attacks go hand-in-hand. If you experience this or any other symptoms of a heart attack, emergency room treatment can intervene in the nick of time.
