The cardiac experts at Dignity Health want your heart to keep beating strong for your loved ones. Early detection of heart problems means treatment can start earlier, so you'll live healthier longer.
For many individuals, the first sign of heart disease begins with a heart attack. Our complete heart care program begins the second you enter our emergency room, where we quickly assess your condition and proceed with the appropriate cardiac diagnostic services.
If intervention is necessary, you’ll immediately go to our cardiac cath lab for angioplasty, where a small balloon is placed and inflated to open blocked heart arteries. The American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association recommends a less than 90 minute door-to-balloon time. Over the past year, Chandler Regional’s average time has been less than 60 minutes.

Your best defense for heart disease is prevention. Your risk for heart disease increases with age and if you have a close family member who had heart disease at an early age. Even if you are not living a healthy lifestyle now, it is not too late to start.
The goal of heart disease treatments include:
Lower the risk of blood clots from forming which can lead to heart attack
Prevent further complications from coronary heart disease
Reduce risk factors that contribute to the build-up of plaque in arteries
Relieve other symptoms such as shortness of breath and fatigue
There are a variety of invasive procedures doctors can use to treat heart disease. More extensive cases of heart disease require heart surgery to restore normal functionality to the heart.
If you are at high-risk for or have been diagnosed with heart disease, it is important to take action to prevent future problems with your heart. Your cardiologist or primary care doctor can write and sign a referral to the Cardiac Rehabilitation Department at Chandler Regional Medical Center.
Having high cholesterol is a risk factor that contributes to coronary heart disease, heart attack and stroke. There are ways to help manage your cholesterol levels, including lifestyle changes.
