Why Heart Smart

Heart Smart is about simply being better.

With over 40 years of providing diagnostic services, equipment and monitoring, we know that striving to be the best means utilizing a three pronged approach.

We strive to provide all patients with access to superior medical technology and treatment while we enable doctors to detect, diagnose and treat patients with abnormalities. Most importantly our knowledge, experience and up to date technology enables doctors to detect, diagnose and treat patients faster and more precisely, avoiding the most common healthcare hiccups.

Heart Smart monitoring services advanced medical technology.

When you suffer from symptoms or an arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm), finding and addressing the source of the issue is imperative. Heart Smart’s advanced heart-monitoring technology and 24/7 support will help your clinician to make timely and informed healthcare decisions.

Why should I wear a heart monitor?

To accurately analyze your daily EKG data, many doctors recommend that patients wear our heart monitors. Medical and technological advances since the early days of bulky heart monitors have led to affordable and highly functional devices that are comfortable and barely detectable. Our devices monitor your EKG data, allowing them to detect any abnormal activity. Based on the particular issue, our heart monitors will track patterns for a specified amount of time. Your heart monitor will record periods of irregular activity and wirelessly transmit this data to our 24/7 monitoring center. Our certified cardiac technicians will analyze this data and prepare a diagnostic report for your clinician.

What is an Arrythmia

Arrhythmias refer to heartbeats that are too slow, too rapid, irregular or too early. Some people with arrhythmias may have no symptoms at all, while others may experience multiple symptoms.

What are the symptoms of an arrythmia?

Depending on other existing health conditions, as well as the particular nature of the irregularity, symptoms of an arrhythmia may vary:

• Chest pain
• Trouble concentrating on tasks
• Shortness of breath, especially when exercising
• Dizziness/ lightheaded sensation
• Fatigue
• Palpitations
• Extreme sweating

What causes an arrythmia?

Like arrhythmia symptoms, the causes of an arrhythmia also vary by individual. But, the following can either put you at risk for an arrhythmia, or lead to a greater chance of an arrhythmia:

• Caffeine
• Excessive exercise against the advice of a doctor or cardiologist
• High blood pressure
• Anxiety
• Alcohol abuse
• Smoking
• Dietary supplements
• Certain medications
• Drug abuse
• Hypertension
• Mental stress

How can Heart Smart help?

While patients may be able to detect symptoms, it’s often difficult to develop a complete diagnosis. With our heart monitor, your clinician can examine precise fluctuations and overall trends of your EKG activity to better diagnose your condition. The long-term tracking technology will detect irregularities that are few and far between, which standard EKGs may not detect, with only a short window of opportunity.
