Heart attack treatment
The leading cause of death in the U.S. is heart attack and heart disease. As a Certified Chest Pain Center, HCA Houston Healthcare Conroe’s emergency room is equipped to quickly identify heart attack symptoms and begin treatment.
Our physicians have the ability to diagnose a heart attack within 15 minutes of arrival. Additionally, we are consistently above the American Heart Association’s guidelines that call for a “door-to-balloon” time of less than 90 minutes. The team at HCA Houston Conroe typically averages 60 minutes or less.
Heart attacks may occur suddenly, but most heart attacks begin slowly with only mild discomfort or pain. Warning signs for heart attack may occur individually or in a combination, and warning signs may differ among men and women. General signs of a heart attack include:
- Chest discomfort: This may feel like pressure, fullness, pain or squeezing in the chest. It may extend to the throat and can last for a few minutes, or go away and come back.
- Upper body discomfort: You may experience pain in the arms, back, neck, jaw or stomach.
- Shortness of breath: This symptom may occur with or without chest pain.
- Chest pain with sweating, nausea, lightheadedness or fainting
