Cardiology Care

Your heart plays a vitally important role in your overall health. This organ the size of a large fist beats around 115,000 times each day, pumping about 2,000 gallons of blood through the body. This ensures that the organs and tissues throughout your body have the essential oxygen they need to function.

Because of that, when your heart isn’t functioning at its best, you can experience a wide range of issues affecting nearly every part of your body. Having access to advanced cardiac care is essential.

We offer an array of cardiac services provided by a team of specialized heart doctors. We care for a wide range of heart health issues, including:

  • Arrhythmia
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Congenital heart disease
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Heart attack (myocardial infarction)
  • Heart disease
  • Heart failure
  • High blood pressure

Our range of services includes a full spectrum of diagnostic testing to determine an accurate diagnosis, identify any underlying medical conditions and provide advanced cardiac care, including cardiac surgery, when needed. Treatment extends to post surgical care, including cardiovascular rehabilitation and continued monitoring.

Cardiac Research

We are committed to bringing the latest cardiovascular medical and device therapy to our patients, and we use clinical research as one avenue for our patients and physicians to access new and developing cardiovascular treatments.

Heart Health Information

Sleeping Less Than Six Hours a Night Can Contribute to Heart Disease

Lack of sleep or short duration sleep, sleep apnea and other sleep problems have been associated with increased cardiovascular disease. According to a study from the National Institute of Health, those sleeping less than six hours per night were 66% more likely to have hypertension than individuals who got seven to eight hours per night. The American Heart Association recommends seven to nine hours of sleep; variance in this sleep pattern has been linked with obesity, high blood pressure and coronary artery disease.

11 Tips for a Good Night’s Sleep

  1. Don’t drink or eat caffeine less than 3 hours before bedtime
  2. Turn off screens (phones, laptop, TV, and other electronics) at least an hour before you want to fall asleep
  3. Dim lights and limit noise, unless it’s soft instrumental music, or sleep-inducing sounds
  4. Have some chamomile herbal tea (non-caffeinated)
  5. Finish exercising at least three hours before bedtime
  6. Don’t take a nap in the afternoon
  7. Avoid alcohol before bed – it can actually deplete you of deep, REM sleep
  8. Keep your room cool (but not too cold)
  9. Stay on schedule – go to bed and wake up at the same time each day to avoid difficult adjustments in sleep patterns
  10. Take a warm bath before bed
  11. If you’re still feeling restless, get up and do something relaxing, such as reading, until you feel sleepy.

If you frequently experience trouble sleeping, see a doctor. It may be something that can easily be addressed. A rested body is a healthier, higher functioning one, so make it a priority for healthy living.
