Atrial fibrillation is the most common type of arrhythmia, an irregular rate or rhythm of your heartbeat. This is caused by a problem with the heart’s electrical system.
Mitral valve prolapse and coronary artery disease are common conditions that could affect your heart. Some people do not experience symptoms for either of these conditions, however, if symptoms are present, your doctor can diagnose the cause and determine if treatment is necessary.
Jerald Downen, 60, spent his youth growing up in Memphis, Tenn., and having lived in Japan and Australia, he was as surprised to find himself at the office of his long time friend and cardiologist, Dr. David Wolford at the Stern Cardiovascular Institute in Memphis, Tenn. “Although I competed internationally in triathlons I was absolutely shocked when I had a heart attack in 2004” Downen says “and since that time my heart never felt quite right and I was constantly worried about what was going on.”
Dr. Daniel Bethencort attended the Re-Evolution Summit, a hands-on experience for cardiac surgeons all around the country to learn the latest techniques for minimally invasive cardiac surgery. The event is hosted in Houston, TX and Dr. Bethencourt was a features speaker and workshop teacher.
During heart health month, it’s important to know whether you are at risk for heart disease and conditions like aortic aneurysms.
February is heart month and Memorial Care Medical Foundation is having a Wear Red Day. What is Wear Red Day? The American Heart Association started “Go Red” to bring awareness to women’s heart health. Heart disease kills more women than all cancers combined.
Atrial Fibrillation is a medical condition that affects over three million people in the United States each year.
It is the most common problem with people’s heartbeat. Also called arrhythmia when the heart beats too fast or too slow, it can cause the wrong amount of blood to be pushed through the circulatory system.
