Cardiac Health Q & A

What is cardiac health?

Cardiac health is a medical term for heart health. It’s also often used to describe the bodily systems and processes associated with your heart, such as your blood vessels and circulatory system.

What are some of the most common cardiac conditions and diseases?

Your cardiac health can be compromised by many different types of cardiac conditions, such as:

  • Coronary artery disease — deprives the heart muscle of necessary blood flow
  • Valve conditions that affect blood flow in and out of the heart’s chambers
  • Heart rhythm problems that disrupt the frequency and coordination of heart contractions
  • Congenital heart defects — heart defects that are present since birth

No matter your heart condition, with the right medical care and personalized support you can lower your risks and protect your heart health.

Grace Family Health has effective and convenient in-office cardiac testing and treatments to boost your cardiac health and treat related conditions.

What are the symptoms or signs that something is wrong with my cardiac health?

The signs or symptoms you experience depend on the type of cardiac condition or complication. Signs that might indicate a problem with your cardiac health include:

  • Chest pain and tightness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Weakness, numbness, pain, or coldness in your legs or arms
  • Pain in the jaw, neck, throat, upper abdomen or back
  • Fatigue
  • Fluttering in your chest
  • Racing or slow heartbeat
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Feeling generally faint or weak
  • Swelling in the ankles, hands, or feet

In some cases, you’re not diagnosed with some form of heart disease until you have a heart attack, stroke, angina, or heart failure. It's important you pay attention to any cardiovascular symptoms and discuss any concerns with your Grace Family Health provider.

If you experience any signs or symptoms you should visit your Grace Family Health provider for an evaluation.

If you have more severe chest pains, feel like you can’t breathe properly, and feel like you might be having a heart attack, you should visit your local hospital emergency room as soon as possible.

How can I take care of my cardiac health?

To take care of your cardiac health, you can:

  • Exercise regularly
  • Consume a nutrient-dense diet
  • Quit smoking
  • Limit or avoid alcohol consumption
  • Work with your Grace Family Health provider
  • Stay at a healthy weight
