Heart disease and other cardiological related diseases and conditions are unfortunately quite common in the United States. Our goal at Altus Emergency Center in Waxahachie is to provide you and your family with accessibility to quality care whenever heart issues become a concern. It is important that you seek immediate emergency care if you or someone you know is experiencing pain in their chest or left arm that has caused concern. Chest pain can be the result of multiple issues, so it is always best to play it safe and know for sure what is going on.
Blood clots are common and can be very dangerous. If you are experiencing pain or tenderness that is not caused by injury, skin that is feverish to the touch, discoloration or redness of the skin, and/or swelling, then you may have a blood clot. Blood clots are extremely dangerous because they can become loose at any given moment. When this happens, the blood clot travels through the blood stream where it could possibly become lodged in the brain, heart, or other organs. This can often be fatal, which is why it is important that you always receive immediate medical attention and meet a specialist in Cardiology in 75165 if you suspect that you may have a blood clot.
Many people believe that heart disease will show itself in severe symptoms that will raise immediate concern. However, symptoms of heart disease can often be mild, which is why it is important to know what to look for. There are many different forms of heart disease. High blood pressure, congenital heart disease, arrhythmia, stroke, peripheral artery disease, and cardiac arrest are all examples of heart disease. If any of the issues, or other heart related issues, run in your family, it is important that you are on the watch for potential symptoms. If you believe that you may be suffering from heart disease, seek medical help immediately.
