There are many different cardiovascular issues that may call for emergency medical care. If you experience any symptoms of cardiovascular deregulation, such as trouble breathing, increased heart rate, or tightness in the chest, you need to seek medical attention right away. Some of the most common cardiovascular problems include heatstroke, chest pain, tachycardia, and other heart problems.
When a person’s body overheats, it causes a chain-reaction of cardiovascular problems. Heatstroke can be fatal if not properly treated. So, any signs of heatstroke should be taken very seriously. Heatstroke typically involves increased cardiac output, confusion, and even loss of consciousness. Some people with heatstroke experience excessively dry skin, while others cannot stop sweating. In severe cases, some individuals have seizures from heatstroke. Our physicians can help ensure that you remain adequately hydrated and monitor you as your body begins to cool down.
Chest pain can signify some of the most serious medical emergencies. All sorts of cardiovascular problems, from silent ischemia to a heart attack, begin as a pain in your chest. Any chest pain should be treated immediately. It is always safest to be especially careful when it comes to your heart. We can immediately perform ECG, EKGs, blood tests, and imaging of your chest. This allows us to diagnose your heart problems and start treating the problem sooner.
If a person’s heart rate exceeds 100 beats per minute, you have entered tachycardia. Many things can cause tachycardia, including fever, too much caffeine, alcohol, and much more. Tachycardia, if not treated, can become severe enough to result in heart failure, stroke, or death. Our team can treat your tachycardia and ensure the health of your heart.
