Description:

he Cardiac Clinic incorporates a novel approach to treatment: preventive care is the wave of the future in treating heart disease. By managing patients with specific risk factors such as diabetes, high blood pressure, smoking, high cholesterol levels, obesity and family history of premature heart disease, it is believed that these patients can learn to take charge of their health and decrease their chances of experiencing a heart attack. A patient is therefore identified as being at risk for having a heart attack before it happens.

The new clinic features the latest technology in screening patients for existence of blockages in arteries of the heart, including calcium scoring using CT scans. A patient educator who is also a certified diabetes educator helps set self-management goals for patients with pre-diabetes or diabetes, and teaches them the importance of diet and exercise. The hospital's Smoking Cessation Program also is available for those patients who need help to quit.
