Treatment for chest pain
If you are experiencing chest pain, it is essential to visit your nearest emergency room as soon as possible. Chest pain can be a symptom of more minor conditions, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) or acid reflux, but it can also be a strong indicator for heart attack.
Visit the Parham Doctors Hospital ER if you are experiencing chest pain accompanied by:
- Squeezing, pressure or tightness in the chest
- An aching sensation in the arms or chest that spreads to the neck, jaw or back
- Shortness of breath
- Sudden dizziness or lightheadedness
Heart attack is an emergent medical condition that requires prompt treatment. If you think you or someone you know is experiencing a heart attack, call 911 immediately.
Cerebrovascular accident (stroke) is a type of medical emergency that can occur in the arteries and interrupts blood flow to the brain. If you suspect someone is having a stroke, time is critical. Call 911 immediately. Stroke is the number one cause of adult disability in the U.S. and the sooner advanced emergency care can be administered, the better chances for recovery become.
If you are recovering from a cardiac condition, such as a heart attack, our cardiac rehabilitation team at Parham Doctors' Hospital is ready to assist you. Our rehabilitation therapists work closely with you to understand your personal goals and help you attain them at a safe and healthy pace.
We begin your exercise program slowly and increase your regimen intensity as you regain heart strength. Our rehab team closely monitors your heart rate, blood pressure and intensity level closely before, during and after exercise. You will learn how to check your heart rate and manage your cardiac condition, so you can do the things you need and love to do, all while working to avoid future heart problems.
