Heart Attack Care

Heart Attack Program

Welcome to the Heart Attack Program at the Stead Heart & Vascular Center at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center (PVHMC), where our mission is to provide comprehensive care and support for individuals at risk of or recovering from heart attacks. With a focus on prevention, education, and rapid response, our program is designed to empower patients to recognize the signs and symptoms of a heart attack and take immediate action.

Prevention and Education

Understanding that heart attacks have beginnings, our program emphasizes the importance of prevention through education. We educate patients on the risk factors associated with heart attacks, including high blood pressure, obesity, smoking, and a sedentary lifestyle. By recognizing these risk factors and making lifestyle modifications, individuals can significantly reduce their risk of experiencing a heart attack.

Early Recognition and Response

One of the key pillars of our Heart Attack Program is early recognition and response. We educate patients on the signs and symptoms of a heart attack, which can include chest pain or discomfort, shortness of breath, nausea, lightheadedness, and pain or discomfort in the arms, back, neck, jaw, or stomach. By empowering individuals to recognize these warning signs, we enable them to take immediate action and seek emergency medical attention.

Rapid Treatment and Intervention

Time is of the essence when it comes to treating a heart attack. Our program is committed to providing rapid treatment and intervention to minimize damage to the heart and improve outcomes for patients. We work closely with emergency medical services to ensure that patients receive timely and appropriate care from the moment symptoms begin.

Comprehensive Support and Rehabilitation

Recovering from a heart attack can be a challenging process, both physically and emotionally. Our Heart Attack Program offers comprehensive support and rehabilitation services to help patients navigate their recovery journey. From cardiac rehabilitation programs to emotional support groups, we provide the resources and assistance patients need to regain their strength and confidence after a heart attack.
