Heart Health Q&A

Why is heart health important?

Heart health is essential to everyone’s life, regardless of age. Your heart is one of your most vital organs, supplying your body with oxygenated blood to function correctly.

However, if you don’t care for your heart, you could have severe and life-threatening problems. A heart attack or stroke are two primary medical conditions that can happen when your heart isn’t healthy.

Whether you’re young and looking toward your future or you’ve already suffered a heart attack, self-care, proper nutrition, and regular physical activity are all great ways to keep your heart in the best shape possible.

Taking care of your heart early on is the best way to extend your life and avoid serious complications to your health.

What is nuclear cardiology?

Nuclear cardiology is a specialty that branches off of general cardiology. It’s a noninvasive practice using radioactive substances and specialized imaging to evaluate and treat various heart problems.

At Jasser Center for Comprehensive Care, Dr. Jasser is a nuclear cardiology expert who offers all patients nuclear stress testing, carotid ultrasounds, and echocardiograms.

What are standard cardiac tests?

The Jasser Center for Comprehensive Care staff has your best interest in mind, so they specialize in cardiac care. If you’re coming in for a heart concern, they offer the following cardiac tests to evaluate and treat the problem:

  • Electrocardiogram (EKG)
  • Echocardiogram
  • Stress tests
  • Carotid ultrasounds
  • Arterial imaging
  • Nuclear stress testing

The type of test required is based on each patient and the symptoms they’re experiencing. You may need more than one cardiac test to determine what’s happening with your heart.

How do I improve my heart health?

Taking control of your heart health is crucial to living a long and healthy life. Young or old, there are a few critical components to a strong heart, which include the following:

  • Get plenty of exercise
  • Eat a heart-healthy diet
  • Quit smoking
  • Limit alcohol intake
  • Keep your cholesterol in check
  • Manage your blood pressure

Our staff also helps you manage your medications and take all the necessary steps to keep your heart working as it should. If you encounter any issues, you can make a telehealth appointment to discuss your concerns with our physicians.
