Strengthen Your Heart's Condition
Your heart is the hardest working muscle in your body — and it deserves to be protected with some of the best and most advanced cardiac care. Maybe a recent diagnosis has you worried about what comes next and unsure how to proceed. Perhaps a recent heart attack, worsening chest pains, or a family history of heart disease has led you to seek out the cardiovascular treatment you need to strengthen your heart.
Whatever your heart's condition, the leading cardiology teams at AdventHealth offer everything from screenings and heart-health education to major heart disease treatments and surgeries. We’re on a mission — not just to diagnose and treat your condition, but to help you achieve greater heart health. It’s all part of our commitment to whole-person wellness and advanced cardiac care.
Keep Your Heart Beating Strong
- Heart Screenings for Whole-Person Health
When something happens that affects your heart health, you deserve answers quickly. You’ll want to know what your cardiovascular treatment options are, as well as the lifestyle changes you can make to help your heart become healthier, stronger, and more resilient. Our team of expert physicians, heart surgeons, cardiologists, and specialized nurses can help you manage the main risk factors for heart attack, including family history, cholesterol, and blood pressure. And they also consider the impact of wellness, especially when it comes to diet, exercise, and even your emotional health. We’ll also help you learn to recognize the symptoms of a heart attack, so you’ll always know when to call 911.
If an emergency does occur, you can trust the heart care team at AdventHealth to treat you promptly and effectively with an organized team approach. If you’re experiencing chest pains or are at risk of heart disease, we’ll harness our expertise and technology to perform diagnostic tests and screenings, including:
- Electrocardiograph (EKG)
- Longer-Term Heart Monitoring Devices, Such As a Holter Monitor, Loop Recorder, or Event Recorder
- Stress Tests
- Know Risk Factors and Symptoms of a Heart Attack
The more you know about chest pain, heart attacks, and general cardiovascular health, the more at ease you’ll feel about your heart health — and the sooner you’ll be able to recognize the warning signs of a heart problem. To keep your heart healthy and strong, make sure to learn your risk factors and know when symptoms are life-threatening. Keep in mind that heart attacks (myocardial infarctions) are most often caused by coronary artery disease, but other conditions can contribute, including high blood pressure, abnormal valves, and/or heart muscle disease.
You have the power — take heart health into your own hands. Call 911 immediately if you’re experiencing any of the following:
- Anxiety or Sweating Accompanied by Chest Pain
- Discomfort Spreading to the Shoulders, Neck, or Arms
- Dizziness, Fainting, or Lightheadedness Accompanied by Chest Pain
- Indigestion or Nausea
