Cutting out just one cigarette a day can lower a smoker's risk of a heart attack. But if you stop smoking completely, in a year your risk of heart disease will be just half that of a smoker's. Get your heart tested today. Call 507-663-9000 (option 1) to make an appointment.
After Steve's heart attack, he continuted his heart care at Allina Medical Clinics in Northfield and Faribault.
These cardiologists from Minneapolis Heart Institute® bring heart health care to Faribault area residents.
Angina is chest pain caused by poor blood flow through the blood vessels of the heart muscle.
Heart attack happens when an artery that feeds your heart muscle becomes blocked with plaque (fatty deposits) or by a clot. When the blood cannot flow to the heart, damage or death to the heart muscle may occur.
Heart rhythm problems
Arrhythmia or dysrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat or rhythm. There are many kinds.
High blood pressure
Blood pressure is the amount of pressure within the walls of your arteries. High blood pressure is increased pressure against artery walls.
Peripheral artery disease (PAD)
Peripheral artery disease (PAD) occurs when plaque clogs the arteries in your legs, reducing blood flow to your legs and feet.
A stroke results when blood and oxygen flow to the brain is stopped or interrupted. This happens because of a ruptured or blocked blood vessel.
The number one killer in the United States, cardiovascular disease affects the heart and blood vessels. Our experts can identify, treat and help you manage cardiac conditions.
Cardiac device clinic: Pacemaker and ICD follow-up program
If a pacemaker or ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator) helps to regulate your heartbeat, we can help you make sure your cardiac device is working properly. Our experts can evaluate your cardiac device and adjust settings so that you benefit the most.
An echocardiogram is a test that uses sound waves to create a moving picture of the heart.
Peripheral vascular imaging
A noninvasive peripheral vascular exam measures blood pressure and blood flow using sound waves created by a device called a doppler. You will have a test done while you rest and while you exercise on a treadmill. This test helps tell if there are blockages in the leg arteries. This test takes about 30 minutes when looking at leg veins, and 45 minutes or longer when looking at the leg arteries.
When you have a rhythm problem with your heart (usually when it beats too slowly or if both sides of your heart don't beat together), you may need a pacemaker. A pacemaker is a medical device that can help your heart beat regularly.
ICD (implantable cardioverter defibrillator)
If your heart is beating too fast or irregularly, your doctor may decide that you need a device that gives your heart an electrical shock to restore your heart to a regular rhythm. This device is called an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD).
