Heart Patient Education
Heart disease is the number one killer of women. In fact, more women die
of problems related to
heart disease than of all types of cancer combined. And, if you have diabetes, you are
two to four times more likely to have heart disease than someone without diabetes.
Chest pain could be simple indigestion or a heart attack. Knowing the warning
signs of a
heart attack, and knowing how to respond, could save a life. And, as an Accredited
Chest Pain Center, Southern Regional is staffed with the team and technology
to make a difference, when minutes count.
Stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is disrupted. Disruption in blood
flow is caused when either a blood clot blocks one of the vital blood
vessels in the brain, or when a blood vessel in the brain bursts, spilling
blood into surrounding tissues. As a designated Primary Stroke Center,
our team specializes in treating this condition, using some of the most
advanced treatments available, such as TPA.
