Lafayette, Ind, (WLFI)- IU Health Arnett has been recognized for its ability to treat patients with heart attack symptoms by the American College of Cardiology.
IU received Chest Pain Center Accreditation with Primary PCI.
And it's well deserved.
When a patient comes to IU with symptoms of a heart attack, it takes an average of only 62 minutes before the blood clot causing the attack is cleared.
The American Heart Association recommends up to 90 minutes can pass.
M. Ziaul Hoque, MD is an Interventional Cardiologist and Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Lab at IU Health Arnett.
He says everyone should be cautious even if they are experiencing less intense symptoms.
"Things may not be completely typical, but typical symptoms should also be kept in mind. And patients should seek attention immediately especially if people have multiple risk factors for development of this disease," Hoque said.
IU Health is offering $49 heart scans.
They also offer gift cards, so you can give the gift of a heart scan to someone you love.
