It is a well-established fact that heart disease is a number one killer
in the United States. One of worst aspects of heart disease is that many
people do not realize they have it until they suffer a heart attack or
other cardiac event. If you or a loved one starts having chest pains or
difficulty breathing, do not panic. Call 911 and have them dispatch an
ambulance, where your treatment will begin. At St. John’s Medical
Center, you will be treated by a well-trained and skilled cardiologist.
Preempting a Heart Condition
One of the best defenses against heart disease is awareness. Though heart
conditions rarely result in noticeable symptoms before a cardiac event,
a doctor can assess your likelihood of developing one during your regular
physical. If you have enough warning factors for heart disease, your doctor
should refer you to a cardiologist.
- Consider visiting a cardiologist if:
- Other members of your family have a heart condition
- Your dentist diagnoses you with gum disease, which is sometimes a side
effect of heart disease
- You smoke or smoked regularly in the past
- You have high blood pressure
- You have high cholesterol
- You have infrequent or frequent chest pains
- You have diabetes
There are numerous ways to reduce your risk of a heart attack or stroke.
Severe heart conditions may need to be treated with surgery, but in many
cases you can manage the condition with simple life changes like a new
diet or exercise routine.
