Treatment to improve your heart health
Your heart is a muscle. With every beat, it helps push blood around your body through the blood vessels. Blood carries oxygen and essential nutrients to the organs and helps to remove waste products from them.
The heart and blood vessels are together referred to as the circulatory or cardiovascular system. Any type of problem, such as a narrowed, blocked or damaged artery or an incorrect heartbeat, can be quite frightening to experience and expert help will often be needed to assess and properly treat.
Certain symptoms may indicate a possible problem within the cardiovascular system. Common symptoms include:
Feeling dizzy or lightheaded
Loss of Consciousness
Less obvious but important problems, like high blood pressure and high cholesterol, are often only picked up during tests.
It is important to know that these symptoms are not always caused by a cardiovascular problem. However, to be safe and for your peace of mind, it is sensible to get expert assessment and guidance if you experience any of these symptoms.
Here at BMI The Blackheath Hospital, our experts treat and manage all diseases and disorders of the cardiovascular system. When you visit with them, they will thoroughly investigate the cause(s) of your symptoms, diagnose the problem and plan any treatment needed to give you the best outcome. Why not book your visit with them now?
