Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women, though the symptoms in women are often underreported or undiagnosed. One challenge is that some heart disease symptoms in women may be different from those in men. Join us to understand the unique symptoms of heart disease in women and begin to reduce your risk of heart disease.
Heart failure is one of the most common reasons for hospitalizations. As its prevalence has grown, so has the need for changes in the methods of treatment. Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Robin Traufler will speak about the causes and symptoms of heart failure plus the latest solutions for living with heart failure, including CardioMEMS™ – a remote monitoring device to help manage symptoms – and ventricular assist devices.
Atrial fibrillation (or Afib) is the most common type of irregular heartbeat. If left untreated, it can lead to blood clots, stroke or heart failure. Our electrophysiologists are experts in treating Afib, and will discuss the latest treatment options including medications, ablations, pacemakers and Watchman™, an implant designed to reduce the risk of stroke in patients with Afib.
Heart disease can lead to heart attack, heart rhythm problems and other life-threatening conditions. Fortunately, knowledge is power. Our cardiologists will help you understand the risk factors for heart disease and how you can prevent it.
The foods that you eat, along with lack of exercise, can cause damage the heart. Take charge of your health and learn how to make heart healthy food choices.
What you may think are normal signs of aging – fatigue, dizziness, shortness of breath – could be signs of aortic stenosis, a narrowing of the aortic heart valve, which typically occurs in those age 75 and older. Fortunately, a minimally invasive treatment option is available: transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).
Many heart conditions can now be diagnosed and treated via heart catheterization, including heart failure, blocked arteries, and valve damage.
