Life-Giving Care. Whole-Hearted Support.
Your heart has a gigantic job — every day it pumps about 2,000 gallons of blood throughout your body. But sometimes it needs a little help. When your heart struggles to perform its daily function, you may need treatment for heart failure. At AdventHealth Tampa, formerly Florida Hospital Tampa, our cardiologists are ready to guide you through the treatment process, supporting and protecting your heart with personalized cardiac care. We’re here to help your heart heal, so it can keep doing the job it was born to do.
Through Leading-Edge Cardiovascular Care
- Screenings and Tests for Heart Failure
When your heart is struggling, it affects every part of your life — heart failure symptoms like constant fatigue, shortness of breath, and dizziness not only compromise your physical health, but the attendant worries affect your emotional and spiritual health as well. We're here to provide whole-person care that tends to every part of you. We'll start with screenings and tests to diagnose your heart health, including:
- CT Scans
- ECG/EKG (Electrocardiograms)
When it comes to cardiology treatments, the sooner you seek care the better. We know you want to start feeling like yourself again, so we’ll try to give you your results quickly. Then we’ll discuss the next steps we can take to care for your heart.
- Types of Heart Failure
Heart failure is a sign that your heart can no longer pump blood correctly. In diastolic heart failure, the heart’s chambers become thick and stiff, which makes it more difficult for blood to flow in. In systolic heart failure, the chambers become thin and stretched, making it more difficult for the heart to pump. A third type of heart failure, congestive heart failure, occurs when blood flowing into the heart backs up and causes congestion. Trust the expert cardiologists at AdventHealth Tampa, formerly Florida Hospital Tampa, to give you an accurate heart failure diagnosis and the personalized heart failure treatments you need.
