Heart Disease

Heart Disease the largest killer of  American males and females. An American will suffer a coronary event almost every 30 seconds, and someone will die from one almost every minute. A diseased heart can impair your quality of life and many times disable you from leading a productive life. Here at NCH Healthcare System, we recognize the prevalence of heart disease and make every effort to educate patients about their diagnosed heart condition.There are designated educators to assist patients and their families with heart diseases such as coronary artery disease, valve disease, heart attack, angina, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias (irregular heart beats), chest trauma and cardiomyopathy (enlarged heart).
