If you suffer from a heart attack or are recovering from heart surgery, cardiac rehabilitation begins while you are still at Newman Regional Health and is designed to help you achieve optimal physical and emotional health through personalized instruction. The goal is to stabilize, slow, or even reverse the progression of cardiovascular disease, thereby reducing the risk of heart disease, a cardiac event or even death.
Peripheral artery disease (PAD) screening and management begins with an initial evaluation consisting of a peripheral CT angiogram, vascular ultrasound, ankle brachial index, and treatment of any blocked arteries in the leg (cold foot) or leg cramps (claudication). We’ll coordinate with your primary care provider and conduct risk factor therapy for preventive measures.
Heart failure treatment includes an initial evaluation for pulmonary hypertension (if right-sided heart failure) and, if needed, treatment for pulmonary hypertension. Home monitoring and follow-up care is critical to managing this condition.
Coronary artery disease screening and management includes an initial evaluation with a coronary CT angiogram, stress test, and treatment of acute chest pain/heart attack. Risk factor therapy and coordination of care with your primary care physician is used to manage, prevent, and reduce your risk for heart attack and stroke.
Treatment of dizziness/syncope involves bradycardia therapy with a pacemaker and tilt-table testing.
Evaluation and treatment of acute deep vein thrombosis requires an initial evaluation and possible acute venous thrombectomy and IVC filter placement.
