Cardiology

Cardiology is the medical treatment of diseases of the heart and parts of the circulatory system. Cardiologists are the doctors who specialize in diagnosing and treating these conditions.

Our cardiovascular specialists are here to provide comprehensive care for conditions affecting your heart and circulatory system. We offer extensive cardiac services throughout Hudson and West Central Florida.

Heart screening and imaging services we offer

Our cardiac hospital is equipped with the tools required to evaluate and diagnose your cardiac condition. Our diagnostic imaging services include:

  • Arrhythmia mapping: This type of imaging is dedicated to tracking an abnormal heart rhythm to locate the site of a heart arrhythmia.
  • Cardiac catheterization: This minimally invasive diagnostic procedure involves inserting a catheter (thin flexible tube) into an artery or vein and guiding it to the blood vessels in the heart.
  • Computerized tomography (CT) scan: We use 64-slice CT scanning technology to produce high-quality X-ray images of the heart's anatomy and surrounding veins and arteries.
  • Echocardiogram: This is a specialized type of ultrasound that produces images of the heart to assess function.
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG): This imaging exam produces a graph that charts the electrical activity of the heart, which is gathered through electrodes placed on the chest.
  • Electrophysiology (EP) studies: These studies test the electrical activity of the heart, often to identify the location of an arrhythmia.
  • Holter monitoring: This device continuously records the heart's rhythm for a specified amount of time.
  • Implantable loop recorder: This device is placed temporarily in the chest to monitor heart rhythm.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI): This imaging technology uses a magnetic field and radio waves to produce detailed images of the heart's structure.
  • Nuclear cardiology: These imaging procedures use radiotracers (radioactive dyes) to assess blood flow in and out of the heart and evaluate the pumping function of the heart muscle.
  • Transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE): This specialized type of echocardiogram uses an ultrasound probe that is inserted through the esophagus to produce unobstructed, detailed images of the heart.
  • Vascular ultrasound: This type of ultrasound examines the circulation of blood flow in the veins and arteries.
  • X-ray: This produces images of the heart, lungs, veins, arteries and bones that make up the chest.

Emergency heart care

In our emergency room (ER), we offer integrated care for anyone coming in with chest pain. Our emergency medicine team is also in constant communication with local emergency medical services (EMS) providers to ensure a seamless continuum of care.

When you arrive at our hospital with heart attack symptoms, our goal is to confirm a diagnosis and restore blood flow through the blocked artery as soon as possible. We treat all types of heart attacks, including ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) heart attacks, which are diagnosed when a complete blockage occurs.

Heart attack symptoms

Often, heart attack symptoms can be subtle. Recognizing early onset heart attack symptoms is crucial to receiving prompt treatment, which can preserve the heart muscle.

Signs of a heart attack include:

  • Anxiety
  • Back pain
  • Chest pressure, squeezing or discomfort
  • Fatigue
  • Feeling of fullness
  • Jaw pain
  • Nausea
  • Pain that travels down one or both arms
  • Shortness of breath

If you believe you are experiencing symptoms of a heart attack, immediately call 911.
