Heart Disease Prevention

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.

Heart Disease Treatment

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

Active participation in your treatment is essential to your health and wellness. Treatments vary based on the severity of your disease.

Electrophysiology

Electrophysiology (EP) is the science of diagnosing and treating electrical activities of the heart, or heart rhythm disorders. Doctors specializing in EP treat irregular heartbeats that are the result of abnormal electrical impulses that cause the heart to beat too quickly, too slowly, or irregularly.

Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation

The Outpatient Cardiac Rehabilitation Program at our sister hospital, St. John’s Regional Medical Center in Oxnard, offers individualized exercise and educational programs for people who have had a recent heart attack, heart surgery, or have experienced other cardiovascular incidents. 

Let's have a heart-to heart.
