What are the symptoms of cardiovascular health problems?

The following symptoms can indicate heart disease or other heart complications:

Heart disease can lead to other chronic medical problems, including obesity, kidney disease, diabetes, and other chronic conditions.

The warning signs of a heart attack include chest pain and pressure, cold sweats, pain in other areas of your body, fatigue, lightheadedness, nausea, and vomiting. If you suspect you or a loved one is having a heart attack, call 911 or go to the nearest hospital emergency room to receive immediate medical care.

How does my provider diagnose cardiovascular health issues?

To diagnose heart disease, your Nirvana Healthcare Management Services provider checks your blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs. They weigh you, determine your body mass index (BMI), and complete a comprehensive physical exam to look for signs of heart problems and other chronic conditions.

You might need blood tests, an electrocardiogram (EKG), a Doppler ultrasound, 24-hour Holter monitoring, remote home monitoring, an echocardiogram, or another imaging procedure to pinpoint the exact cause of your symptoms and develop an effective treatment plan.

How are cardiovascular health problems treated?

Your personalized cardiovascular health treatment plan will be developed around your symptoms, diagnosis, and how severe your condition is. You might change your diet and exercise routine, reduce sodium, take medication or dietary supplements, lose weight, or undergo a medical procedure to reduce your chance of life-threatening problems.

The Nirvana Healthcare Management Services team follows up with you in person or virtually via telehealth to help you properly manage your condition and reduce the risk of complications.
