CPR

Most people experience cardiac

arrest at home, work or in a public location. Some die because they do not receive the immediate CPR from someone on the scene. As a bystander, don't be afraid. Your actions can only help.   CALL 9-1-1, THEN PUSH HARD & FAST IN THE CENTER OF THE CHEST.

    Our physicians are Board Certified and have been performing these procedures for 30 years, The Pacemaker and Defibrillator are treatments for cardiac arrhythmias, while the Cardiac Catheterization, Echocardiogram and Nuclear Stress test helps to identify, or define cardiac conditions. This enables the physician to advise  appropriate treatment plans.


Anatomy of the Heart

Maybe you are experiencing something that concerns you and you think it's time to find out about the body's pump". Click this link for a comprehensive site on the heart, inside and out.

Pacemakers and Implantable Cardiac Defibrillators

are used to treat arrhythmia-a condition of heart rhythm problems that occurs when the electrical impulses that coordinate your heartbeats don't function properly, causing your heart to beat too fast, too slow or irregularly.

Echocardiography

is a type of ultrasound test that uses high-pitched sound waves that are sent through a device called a transducer. The device picks up echoes of the sound waves as they bounce off the different parts of your heart. These echoes are turned into moving pictures of your heart that can be seen on a video screen.

Nuclear Stress

 measures blood flow to your heart muscle both at rest and during stress on the heart. It's performed I=similar to a routine exercise test, but provides images that can show areas of low blood flow through the heart and areas of damaged heart muscle.

Cardiac Catheterization

is a diagnostic procedure used to examine blood flow to the heart and test how well the heart is pumping. A doctor inserts a thin plastic tube (catheter), into an artery or vein in the arm or let. From there is can be advanced into the chambers of the heart of into the coronary arteries.

Holter monitors

Feel dizzy sometimes, or feel your heart beating?  You may be asked to wear a Holter Monitor to see if you have a slow, fast or irregular (uneven) heartbeat. Or, your doctor may use it to see how well your medicines are working to treat these problems.

Gender Differences in Heart Disease.

We know men and women are different. So how does this difference affect the way heart disease manifests itself in us. What can we do about it?
