Heart & Vascular - Disease Management

Disease Management

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), approximately 610,000 people die of heart disease in the United States each year, which equals 1 in 4 deaths. Currently, over 28.4 million adults in the U.S. have been diagnosed with heart disease. At Hattiesburg Clinic Heart & Vascular, our goal is to provide disease management and help with a patient’s heart and/or vascular diseases. This is accomplished through a variety of programs and services, including:

 

CARDIAC REHABILITATION

At Hattiesburg Clinic Heart & Vascular, cardiac rehabilitation is a team effort to help patients improve the future of their heart health. For patients who have experienced any form of heart disease, heart failure, angioplasty, heart surgery, a heart attack or more, a cardiac rehabilitation program may prove beneficial to the future health of the patient. The cardiac rehabilitation program may consist of:

  • Counseling
  • Heart-healthy lifestyle information
  • Nutrition and physical education specifically related to heart-health

A cardiac rehabilitation program is intended to help the patient grow stronger, both physically and mentally, and to educate the patient on how to manage and hopefully improve their health for the long run.

Patients should consult with a doctor for more information on a cardiac rehabilitation program that best meets their needs.

CARDIOVASCULAR ASSESSMENT RISK EVALUATION (CARE)

It may be frightening to learn that heart disease is the number one killer of American women. But heart disease can be treated with early detection. New technology measuring your cardiac calcium score can detect heart artery blockages often before you experience symptoms.

The Cardiovascular Assessment Risk Evaluation includes:

  • Cardiac CT calcium score
  • Lipid profile (total cholesterol, HDL, triglycerides) and glucose
  • Cardiac risk questionnaire
  • A review with a mid-level provider
  • 12-lead electrocardiogram/EKG
  • Blood pressure and heart rate
  • Body Mass Index (BMI)
  • Key facets for heart-healthy nutrition and exercise

Hattiesburg Clinic Heart & Vascular offers the Cardiovascular Assessment Risk Evaluation. To take the first step to a longer, healthier life, call 601-268-5800 to schedule an appointment. Patients are able to self-refer. This service is not billed through insurance.

DEVICE CLINIC

For Hattiesburg Clinic Heart & Vascular patients who have implanted devices, such as pacemakers or defibrillators, a regular schedule of clinic visits are needed to ensure the success of the devices. Heart & Vascular provides a comprehensive device clinic to manage the long-term care of implant patients.

CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE MANAGEMENT

Congestive heart failure is when the heart does not function properly and can be ongoing or can happen suddenly. Conditions that contribute to heart failure include:

  • High blood pressure
  • Coronary arterial disease
  • Stenosis
  • Regurgitation
  • Congenital, or birth-defects
  • Myocarditis
  • Arrhythmia
  • Damaged heart muscles, or cardiomyopathy
  • Other diseases (such as HIV or diabetes)

Along with treatments and procedures offered at Hattiesburg Clinic Heart & Vascular, our team offers comprehensive heart failure management. Disease management also includes education on lifestyle, nutrition and physical activity changes to improve heart-health. A patient should consult their provider regarding an appropriate plan of care to manage their heart health.
