INTEGRIS Heart Hospital Available Services
Patients with suspected cardiac disease or vascular disorders may receive many types of diagnostic cardiac exams at INTEGRIS Heart Hospital. Those exams may include an EKG or ECG, a Holter monitor, a stress test or other forms of testing to examine your heart.
Cardiac electrophysiology is the study of the heart’s electrical system. This system directs how fast or slow your heart beats and determines how it beats. When the heart’s electrical system experiences a problem, it can result in an abnormal heart rhythm – called arrhythmia. While medication can help control arrhythmia, other treatments such as a pacemaker or implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) may be required.
Heart failure, also called congestive heart failure, is a condition in which the heart cannot pump enough oxygenated blood to meet the needs of the body's other organs. The heart keeps pumping, but not as efficiently as a healthy heart.
An interventional procedure is a treatment used to open narrowed coronary arteries to improve blood flow to the heart. An interventional procedure may include cardiac catheterization, balloon angioplasty, a stent, or a combination of these procedures.
There are three types of heart surgery conducted at INTEGRIS Heart Hospital: Coronary Artery Bypass, Heart Transplant, and Placement of Artificial Heart/Ventricular Assist Device.
Your heart contains four major valves. Damage to one or more these valves may cause it to leak, leading to blood flowing in the wrong direction, or to become very narrow, making it difficult for blood to flow through the valve. In some cases, the valve may be repaired. In other cases, it must be replaced with a valve made of animal material or metal.
Cardiac rehabilitation is a supervised program that includes: exercise, lifestyle changes, education and emotional support for people who have had a heart attack, bypass surgery or have other heart problems. Programs are medically supervised and individually designed to enhance your quality of life. The goal is to help you return to and maintain your best possible physical and emotional condition.
The goal of the INTEGRIS Anticoagulation Clinics is to optimize anticoagulation effectiveness while minimizing patient risks. We provide management and monitoring of anticoagulation therapy with a primary focus on warfarin (Coumadin®) therapy.
A stroke, which in the past was called a cerebrovascular accident (CVA), is a rapid decline of brain function due to disturbance in the blood supply to the brain, caused by a blocked or burst blood vessel. This results in a disturbance of glucose and oxygen caused by the thrombosis or embolism, or due to a hemorrhage. A Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) is a brief episode of stroke-like symptoms that results from a temporary blockage of a blood vessel.
