Atria Heart was created on the premise that timely prevention of heart disease provides benefits for the vast majority of the population.
OVER 80% OF ALL PEOPLE ARE AT INCREASED LIFETIME RISK FOR FUTURE CARDIAC EVENTS.
Our goal is to promote opportunities and provide therapies to enhance cardiovascular health to prevent future events related to cardiac, peripheral, and cerebral vascular disease. This can involve being proactive due to a strong family heart history, trying to prevent future cardiac events in the setting of prior heart attacks, stents or bypass surgery, or adopting changes to prevent development of cardiovascular disease overall.
THERE ARE MULTIPLE RISK FACTORS FOR HEART DISEASE.
Most of these can be well-managed with proper guidance for diet, exercise and therapeutic lifestyle changes. Some people have a strong family history of early heart disease, and need to be more conscious of cardiac risk factors. They may also need more aggressive monitoring and intervention with modifiable risk factors. Our goal is to optimize the cardiac risk profile for every patient in our care to prevent future cardiovascular events.
Echo: Non-invasive ultrasound test for evaluation of heart muscle function, valve function, and structural heart disease
Holter Monitor: Device used to record every heartbeat for 24-48 hours to detect arrhythmias
ECG: Measure of electrical signal of the heart used for multiple diagnostic purposes
Event Monitor: Device used to record arrhythmias over a 3 to 4 week period that may occur less frequently than a Holter monitor would find.
Peripheral Ultrasound: Non-invasive ultrasound test to evaluate blood flow in the Aorta and Peripheral Vessels
Nuclear Stress Test: A diagnostic test used to evaluate blood flow to the heart. During the test, a small amount of radioactive tracer is injected into a vein. A special camera, called a gamma camera, detects the radiation released by the tracer to produce computer images of the heart.
Carotid Ultrasound: A non-invasive ultrasound of the neck that uses sound waves to examine the blood flow through the carotid arteries.
ABI (Ankle-Brachial Index) Test: A quick, noninvasive way to compare the blood pressure measured at your ankle with your blood pressure measured at your arm.
We pride ourselves on creating a personalized treatment strategy for all of our patients that incorporates an emphasis on diet, exercise, and overall healthy habits. We know that improved overall wellness and happiness leads to better heart health!
