Discover the keys to maintaining a healthy heart and blood vessels through our expert guidance.

Symptoms of Heart Disease

As reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), heart disease stands out as the leading cause of death in the United States. Recognizing the symptoms of heart disease is essential for early detection and intervention. Stay informed about warning signs and the associated risk factors related to coronary heart disease. Our team will guide you in understanding these symptoms, empowering you to take proactive steps towards a healthier heart.

Common symptoms of heart disease include:

  • Ankle or feet swelling
  • Chest discomfort
  • Excessive fatigue
  • Heart murmur
  • Heart palpitations
  • High blood pressure
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Unhealthy cholesterol levels

According to the American Heart Association, the warning signs of a heart attack may affect men and women differently. In some cases, women experience no symptoms at all. Signs that manifest differently between the sexes include:

  • Breaking out in a cold sweat
  • Central chest pain, pressure, or fullness that lasts more than a few minutes
  • Discomfort in other areas, such as the arms, back, neck, jaw, or stomach
  • Excessive fatigue
  • Lightheadedness
  • Nausea or vomiting

Please note: For any life-threatening medical emergency, such as a heart attack, dial 911 for immediate medical care.

Underlying Factors Affecting Cardiovascular Diseases

It’s important to understand that some patients with underlying health issues and other risk factors may be more susceptible to heart disease than others. With a dedication to educating patients on their level of risk and providing personalized care, men’s health and women’s health services are available, as well as those focused on managing chronic conditions like diabetes.

Diagnosis and Treatment

Our state-of-the-art facilities offer advanced diagnostic tools, including cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, to accurately detect cardiovascular diseases. From identifying risk factors to providing tailored treatment plans for conditions like peripheral artery disease and heart failure, we are here to guide you on your journey to cardiovascular wellness.

Providers can screen for various health conditions using the latest diagnostic technology, and the care teams of Nirvana Healthcare Management Services emphasize the importance of prevention and early detection. Patients may receive one or more tests depending on the symptoms or condition.

Cardiovascular disease evaluations encompass a range of focus areas to give patients a clear picture of their overall health. For instance, echocardiograms let providers check heart functionality, and vein mapping allows them to identify which veins in the legs are not circulating properly. Other tests available include carotid, arterial, venous, renal, and transcranial Doppler ultrasounds, 24-hour Holter monitoring, and remote home patient monitoring.

Treatments will vary based on assessment results and other factors. In partnership with an experienced, trusted provider, patients can receive the individualized guidance and medical care they need to treat heart disease, make meaningful lifestyle changes, and manage their cardiovascular health for a lifetime.
