Risk Factors for Heart Conditions

You can empower all of your tomorrows, today. And we can help. Though some risk factors for heart disease are outside your control, many — like the proper diet, maintaining a healthy weight, and finding ways to reduce anxiety in your life — are not. Managing these can be as simple as trying new recipes, moving more, and engaging in meditative practices like delegating part of your to-do list to others or spending some time in nature.

At AdventHealth Palm Coast, formerly Florida Hospital Flagler, our cardiac care team will work with you to discover all the ways you can reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke. Our goal is your goal: to reduce your risk of heart issues while energizing your body, engaging your mind, and elevating your spirit.

Start Your Journey With a Diagnosis

When something isn't right with your health, you feel it. Whether that's chest pain or sleep trouble, you need a quick diagnosis. That's where we come in. Our qualified cardiologists will conduct an initial screening to diagnose your condition and provide the answers you deserve.

Your initial screening may include the following tests:

  • 24-Hour Holter Monitoring — Use of a battery-operated portable device that measures and records heart activity continuously for 24 hours
  • Cardiac MRIs/MRAs
  • CT Scans
  • Diagnostic Cardiac Catheterizations
  • Echo Tests — Use of high-frequency sound waves to create a photo of the heart
  • EKGs
  • Nuclear Cardiology — Insertion of trace material that illuminates your vein so we can take a photo of your heart
  • Stress Tests
  • X-Rays

Our cardiac care team can diagnose and treat a range of cardiovascular conditions, including:

  • Atrial Fibrillation and Arrhythmias
  • Chest Pain
  • Heart Attack
  • Heart Failure
  • Heart Valve Disease
  • Vascular Disease

Together, we'll work with you to develop a custom cardiac care plan that addresses both your heart and your overall health needs. We call this whole-person care and it includes facilitating wellness for your body, mind, and spirit.
