Chest XRAY EKG CT Warning Signs You Need to Get One

Warning Signs You Need to Get a Chest XRAY, EKG, or CT

Did you know your heart beats 115,200 times a day on average? That means every year; your heart beats more than 42 million times. That’s a lot of work!

The heart is a complex system of valves, ventricles, arteries, and veins responsible for pumping oxygen and nutrient-rich blood around the body and eliminating cellular waste.

As such, there is a lot that can go wrong. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in America, with one person dying every 36 seconds.

Preventing cardiovascular disease is possible; however, you might not know you are in danger because not all heart conditions cause symptoms. These situations can lead to emergencies where you require immediate medical attention.

Warning Signs of Heart Attack, Stroke, and Cardiac Arrest

Cardiovascular episodes such as heart attack, stroke, and cardiac arrest are life and death emergencies, where every second counts.

If you notice any of these symptoms in yourself or someone else, please call 911 immediately. It’s important to know that all these signs don’t need to occur. If you notice one or more, get help fast!

There are several medications and procedures that can help stop a heart attack or stroke in progress when administered shortly after the first symptoms. These life-saving drugs can significantly reduce long-term disabilities and increase the chances of survival. Again, if you notice any of these symptoms, don’t delay. Get help right away!

Warning Signs of a Heart Attack

  • Discomfort, pressure, or pain in the center of your chest that lasts for more than a few minutes or comes and goes
  • Discomfort or unexplained pain in other areas of your upper body
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Nausea
  • Cold sweat
  • Lightheadedness

Warning Signs of a Stroke

  • Drooping on one side of your face
  • Sudden numbness or weakness in one arm, leg, or face
  • Trouble talking, slurred speech, unable to speak
  • Sudden confusion, difficulty walking, loss of balance, or lack of coordination
  • Sudden severe headache

Warning Signs of Cardiac Arrest

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Unresponsiveness
  • No normal breathing

Diagnostic Tests

Here are some ways our doctors can scope out your heart and get you the right treatment fast!

 

X-Ray

An X-Ray is a standard medical scan that takes pictures of your organs and other structures inside your chest. The test is safe, quick, and painless, and it allows our doctors to see if you have an enlarged heart or fluid buildup around your heart and lungs.

Please make sure to let our doctors if you have a pacemaker, a metal implant, or if you are pregnant or could be pregnant before getting an x-ray.

 

Electrocardiogram (EKG)

An EKG (short for electrocardiogram) is a common and painless test used to record the heart’s electrical signals.

Irregular heart rhythms, heart attacks, and the presence of thickened heart muscles will show up as changes on the EKG. This test allows our physicians to detect any heart problems quickly and to monitor your heart’s health.

 

CT Scan

A Computed Tomography scan (CT Scan) is a sophisticated imaging method that uses information from multiple X-rays to create detailed 3D pictures of your heart and blood vessels.

 

There are several applications of this diagnostic test:

Coronary Calcium Scan: Serves to determine if there is a calcium buildup in your heart arteries

CT Angiography: The test allows our doctors to evaluate if there is a narrowing or a blockage in the heart arteries

 

Doctors may recommend a CT angiography if you have any of the following:

  • Unexplained chest pain
  • Unusually high blood pressure
  • Symptoms that suggest you may have a tear in a major artery

 

Sometimes the CT scan will also include the aorta or pulmonary arteries to determine if there are any problems with those structures causing your symptoms.

 

 

At Altus Emergency Centers, we have the most advanced cardiovascular diagnostic technology that allows us to determine if you are suffering from a life-threatening condition quickly. Additionally, all our locations also have on-site clinical laboratories that provide valuable information for our doctors to diagnose and treat your condition.

African American Healthcare Pioneers: Honoring Black History Month

Honoring Black History Month: African American Pioneers in Healthcare

February is Black History Month. A time for us to celebrate the achievements and contributions of countless African Americans in every field. We’re happy to celebrate African American Healthcare Pioneers!

The history of African Americans in health care spans more than 300 years. In the early 1700s, an enslaved man named Onesimus shared scientific knowledge of vaccination procedures from his home in Africa with Cotton Mather, a theologian. This selfless act has helped save countless lives over the years.

The stories of those brave African Americans who helped shape modern medicine in our country comprise the hardship and triumphs of their quest to improve everyone’s healthcare conditions.

We hope you join us as we explore the invaluable contributions of some of history’s most renowned African American healthcare professionals.

Dr. Daniel Hale Williams (1856 – 1931)

Dr. Daniel Williams performed the first successful open-heart surgery at Provident Hospital in Chicago, the same hospital he helped found in 1891.

During his time, African American physicians were denied membership in the American Medical Association; this injustice prompted Dr. Williams to create the National Medical Association in 1895.

In 1913, he became a charter member of the American College of Surgeons; regretfully, he remained the only African American member for many years.

Dr. Charles Richard Drew (1904-1950)

Have you ever wondered how blood banks came to be? Well, we can all thank Dr. Charles Drew, a pioneer researcher in blood plasma for transfusion.

During WWII, Dr. Drew developed innovative methods of storing blood plasma for later use in life-saving transfusions. He also organized the first large-scale blood bank in the United States.

After the war, Dr. Drew developed a blood storage program at the American Red Cross.

Marilyn Hughes Gaston, MD (b. 1939)

Dr. Gaston became the first African American female director of the United States Public Health Bureau. She’s received every award that the Public Health Service bestows.

Dr. Gaston is best known for her groundbreaking 1986 Sickle-Cell Anemia study, which led to implementation of a national sickle-cell disease screening program for newborns.

Patricia Era Bath, MD (b. 1942)

Dr. Bath is the first African American to complete an ophthalmology residency in the United States. She is known for conducting a study that found twice the rate of blindness among African Americans when compared to whites.

Additionally, she was the first African American female physician to receive a medical patent for the Laserphaco Probe, an instrument used in cataract surgery.

Image source: Wikipedia.org

Leonidas Harris Berry, MD (1902 — 1995)

Dr. Berry was the first African American physician on staff at the Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago. Although a renowned gastroenterologist, he faced racism at the workplace for many years.

He became a trailblazer by fighting for an attending position for decades. In 1963, he became a member of the attending staff at Michael Reese Hospital, where he remained a senior attending physician for the rest of his career.

During the 1950s, Dr. Berry chaired a Chicago commission whose goals were to make hospitals more inclusive for black physicians and increase healthcare access in underserved areas.

Image source: Wikipedia.org

Louis Wade Sullivan, MD (b. 1933)

Dr. Sullivan was the only African American student in his class at Boston University School of Medicine, yet he made an impact. He served on the faculty from 1966 to 1975 when he became the founding dean of the Medical Education Program at Morehouse College. Today the institution is known as Morehouse School of Medicine, the first predominantly black medical school in America.

Dr. Sullivan served as secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, where he contributed to the creation of the Office of Minority Programs in the National Institute of Health’s Office of the Director.

Over the years, Dr. Sullivan has chaired several influential groups and institutions, including the President’s Advisory Council on Historically Black Colleges and Universities and the National Health Museum.

Image source: Wikipedia.org

Dr. Mae C. Jemison (b. 1956)

In 1987, Dr. Mae Jemison made history by becoming the first female African American astronaut for NASA. But this would not be her only historical achievement. In 1992, she became the first African American woman in space, serving as a mission specialist aboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour.

As a physician, Dr. Jamison worked with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) researching vaccines. She continued her medical research on the space shuttle conducting experiments in materials processing and life sciences in space.

Image source: Wikipedia.org

At Altus Emergency Centers, we are proud to celebrate the many achievements and valuable contributions to healthcare advancement by all African Americans throughout history. We know there will be many more leaders and trailblazers to come in the near future. We encourage everyone to support and cheer for the new generation of African American medical professionals.

Texas Law Covers Traffic Accidents

Insurance Companies Must Cover ER Trips Involving Traffic Accidents

Danger on the Road – Traffic Accident Statistics

With nearly 264 million vehicles registered and over 218 million individuals with a valid driving license, our roads are some of the busiest in the world. This, unfortunately, means traffic accidents are more common than any of us would like.

Annual Car Accidents in The United States

Every year the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issues a briefing based on reported car accidents nationwide. The NHTSA keeps track of injuries, fatalities as well as the factors which might have contributed to the crash such as speeding, alcohol, and distractions.

From these reports we can gather the following statistics:

  • There are more than 6 million reported car crashes a year in the United States
  • An estimated 37,133 people lost their lives in motor vehicle-related accidents in 2017
  • 18,720 people have died between January and June of 2018 according to the National Safety Council

The Impact of Motor Vehicle Accidents in Texas

Data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the state of Texas has the most traffic fatalities of any state in the country.

  • In 2017 there were 3,407 fatal car crashes reported
  • 3,722 people lost their lives due to a car crash related incident in 2017
car accident trauma emergency

Most Common Causes of Traffic Accidents

Distracted Driving

Distracted driving is the leading cause of road accidents in America. Drivers can become distracted by several things while driving:

  • Cell phones
  • Eating
  • Drinking from a mug or bottle
  • Talking
  • Children
  • Pets in the car

Not paying attention to the road while driving can have dire consequences; the NHTSA reports 3,166 fatalities in distraction-affection crashes in 2017. There were also an estimated 795 deaths due to drowsy driving last year.

In addition to these tragic deaths, thousands of victims who experience long-term disabilities.

Speeding

The second most common cause of road accidents in the United States is speeding, and because most of these accidents typically occur at high speeds, it is also a significant cause of traffic accident-related deaths with an estimated 9,717 deaths in 2017.

Drunk Driving

Road accidents involving drunk drivers are another major cause of injuries and fatalities, especially during the weekend and holidays. Drinking slows down our response time and our ability to focus on the road, and it can also make us drowsy.

According to data from the NHTSA,

“29% of the total fatalities of road accidents were in alcohol-impaired-driving crashes.”

In our own state of Texas:

Out of the 3,722 road accident deaths in 2017, 1,468 or 39% of them occurred in an accident caused by a drunk driver.

Getting Prompt Medical Attention Can Help Save A Life

According to the CDC for every person killed in a road accident,

“8 were hospitalized, and 100 were treated and released from the Emergency Room.”

Anyone who is involved in a severe motor vehicle accident should be taken to the nearest Emergency Room for evaluation, given that some injuries can only be diagnosed with advanced imagining technology.

During a crash, victims might have suffered internal injuries or head trauma that if not treated promptly can lead to long-term disabilities or even death.

Some injuries are more time-sensitive than others, in these cases it is better to transfer the patient to a Free-Standing ER facility such as any of the Altus Emergency Centers where they can be treated by a licensed emergency physician right away, rather than transport them to a Hospital ER where their treatment might be delayed due to overcrowding issues.

It’s important to remember that insurance companies are obligated to offer emergency room coverage in their policies. If you are involved in a car accident and need to go to the emergency room, your insurance policy will cover your visit.

Heart Disease in Texas

Heart Disease in Texas

February Is American Heart Month

This year marks the 57th consecutive year in which we celebrate American Heart Month. As part of the medical community, we are raising our raising awareness to help keep our friends and families free from heart disease.

While medical advances continue to improve our quality of life, cardiovascular disease is still the number one killer of Americans.

The American Heart Association estimates that heart disease and stroke kill close to 2300 people a day. More alarming perhaps is that younger people are falling victim to cardiovascular disease than ever before.

Heart Disease in Texas

These are the most updated statistics in Texas in 2021.  Statistics shared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that heart disease was the leading cause of death in Texas in 2017, while stroke took third place.

According to the 2017 Texas Heart Disease and Stroke Fact Sheet:

What Are Your Risk Factors?

We usually associate heart disease with older people; however, many of the medical conditions and lifestyle behaviors associated with an increased risk of heart disease are appearing at a younger age.

These are some of the most common risk factors for cardiovascular disease:

 

High Blood Pressure

Hypertension is becoming more frequent in people in their 40’s and 50’s, but it can affect anyone at any age.

The real danger is that many of us don’t know we have high blood pressure and are therefore not doing anything to control it.

Uncontrolled high blood pressure is one of the most significant risk factors for heart disease and stroke.

 

High Cholesterol

While it’s true, our bodies need cholesterol to build healthy cells, too much of it can increase our risk of heart disease.

Cholesterol has a waxy consistency and when we have high levels of it, we can develop fatty deposits in our blood vessels.

These deposits adhere to the walls of our arteries; over time, the buildup slows or prevents blood flow from reaching the heart muscle.

Sometimes these deposits break free and cause a cloth that can lead to a heart attack or stroke.

Smoking

Smoking is known to damage blood vessels and cause heart disease. If you are one of the 37 million Americans that are smokers, speak to your doctor to find out how you can quit.

If you are not a smoker, don’t start!

 

Chronic Disease

Certain chronic conditions are linked to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, including diabetes, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriasis.

The high blood sugar levels associated with diabetes can damage blood vessels and the nerves that help control the heart muscle.

The chronic inflammation associated with rheumatoid arthritis and other conditions causes damage to the blood vessels and arteries and can significantly increase the risk of a heart attack.

 

Obesity

Those extra pounds most of us carry around put additional stress on our hearts, which over time, can damage it.

Obesity has become a real health problem with more than 1 in 3 Americans and nearly 1 in 6 children under the age of 19 being obese.

Know Where to Go in Case of an Emergency.

Recognize When You Are Having a Heart Attack or Stroke

When it comes to cardiovascular episodes the faster you get medical attention the better the outcome. So, it’s essential to learn how to recognize a heart attack or stroke.

 

Signs of a Heart Attack

Should you experience any of the following symptoms, call 911 immediately and ask them to bring you the nearest Altus Emergency Center or other nearby ER.

  • Pain, uncomfortable pressure, sense of fullness or tightness in the center of your chest that lasts more than a few minutes or comes and goes
  • Unusual discomfort or pain in one or both arms, stomach, neck, jaw or back
  • Unexplained shortness of breath with or without chest pain
  • Suddenly breaking out in cold sweat, lightheadedness, or nausea

The most common sign of heart attack in both men and women is chest pain or discomfort. Women are more likely to experience some of the symptoms, including especially shortness of breath, back and jaw pain, as well as nausea.

 

Signs of a Stroke

Both men and women share these stroke symptoms:

  • Face drooping
  • Arm weakness
  • Slurred speech
  • Vision problems
  • Trouble walking and other coordination problems
  • Unexplained severe headache

 

Additionally, women who are suffering from a stroke may experience the following:

  • General weakness
  • Disorientation, confusion, and memory problems
  • Fatigue

Taking control of your heart health needs to be a priority, changes in lifestyle and diet can help protect our heart from illness.

However, even if we are healthy, we can still experience a cardiovascular episode, that is why at Altus Emergency Centers, we guarantee minimal wait times, and quality emergency medical care 24/7.
