Your First Step towards Heart Health for Life Starts Here
A heart attack, also called a myocardial infarction, happens when a part of the heart muscle doesn’t get enough blood.
Angina is a type of chest pain caused by reduced blood flow to the heart. Angina (an-JIE-nuh or AN-juh-nuh) is a symptom of coronary artery disease.
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most common type of heart disease in the United States. It is sometimes called coronary heart disease or ischemic heart disease.
Peripheral artery disease (also called peripheral arterial disease) is a common circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to your limbs.
An abnormal heart rhythm is when your heart beats too fast, too slow, or irregularly. This is also called an arrhythmia.
Congenital Heart Disease
Congenital heart disease is a general term for a range of birth defects that affect the normal way the heart works.
An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a simple test that can be used to check your heart’s rhythm and electrical activity.
Angiography is a type of X-ray used to check blood vessels. Blood vessels do not show clearly on a normal X-ray, so a special dye needs to be injected into your blood first.
A pacemaker is a device that sends small electrical impulses to the heart muscle to maintain a suitable heart rate or to stimulate the lower chambers of the heart.
Heart Valve Disease
Your heart has four valves that keep blood flowing in the correct direction. In some cases, one or more of the valves don’t open or close properly.
Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle that makes it harder for your heart to pump blood to the rest of your body.
2D echocardiography, also known as 2D echo, is a non-invasive investigation used to evaluate the functioning and assess the sections of your heart.
Cardic Health Checkup
The tests or procedures used to determine a person’s heart condition and how their heart is functioning are included in a cardiac health checkup.
A coronary angioplasty is a procedure used to widen blocked or narrowed coronary arteries (the main blood vessels supplying the heart).
