If you haven’t already, we do recommend that all homes and businesses learn how to use and buy AEDs (automated external defibrillators), which can be utilized to revive someone from sudden cardiac arrest.
If you have chest pain or suspect that you have a dangerously fast or chaotic heartbeat that is keeping your heart from supplying enough blood to the rest of your body (ventricular fibrillation), please call us today.
The initial evaluation of Westwood cardiac patients consists of performing a physical examination and obtaining a medical history. During the physical examination, we look for an underlying cause for symptoms that have presented – such as chest pain or shortness of breath – and assess heart function. The medical history will include questions about heart problems or symptoms, family history, medication use and other medical conditions. We may also request laboratory tests, such as urinalysis or blood tests, in order to identify various conditions.
