Cardiology

The Mission Regional cardiology team is committed to providing comprehensive heart care to patients by treating and preventing heart attacks and heart disease.

One American dies every 33 seconds from heart disease, claiming approximately one million lives annually. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. By, 2020, heart disease will be the leading cause of death around the world. Despite these depressing statistics, heart disease and heart attacks are preventable. Knowing your family history and the current state of your heart’s health can help you make good choices to prevent heart disease.

Our Cath Lab will help you with detecting and treating heart conditions before a heart attack occurs. Equipped with modern technology, Mission Regional’s specially trained cardiac specialists monitor your heart and help to keep your arteries clear and your heart pumping.

Our top priority is patient care and we are deeply committed to your well being. We strive to provide quality cardiac exams and procedures while informing our patients how they can take an active role in their preventing heart problems and treating them if they do occur.

Testing

  • Our testing department is staffed with technicians who are highly trained and will ensure your well-being. We use the latest, non-invasive cardiac testing procedures:
    • EKG (electrocardiogram, sometimes also called ECG) – This is a quick, safe and painless test using small electrode stickers placed on the chest, arms and legs. They detect when the body sends an electrical signal to begin a new heartbeat. The information is recorded for the doctor to measure the strength and timing of electrical signals as they pass through the heart.
    • Stress Test/Treadmill Test – This test will show how the heart rhythm changes when it’s resting and exercising.

    • Holter Monitor – This is a 24-hour EKG test. You will wear a small, portable device to record heart rhythm during your daily activities. The doctor will also ask you to keep an hour-by-hour diary so they know what you were doing.

    • Echocardiogram (Also called an “echo”) – This is basically an ultrasound of the heart to show the structure of the heart chambers and surrounding area.

    • Cardiolite Test – This test determines if your coronary arteries are supplying your heart with enough blood. It involves using an IV to inject a drop of radioactive tracer into a vein in your arm. Our nuclear medicine camera can detect when your blood carries the tracer to your heart muscle and arteries.
