Chest Pain Woodland Hills

Cardiology is a field of health that encompasses symptoms and problems concerning the heart and chest area. Numerous patients become nervous or anxious when they experience any problems in this area. This is because most medical issues that develop in the chest are mistakenly associated with heart attacks. Even though not all cardiology issues indicate a heart attack risk, a comprehensive evaluation from the Woodland Hills Medical Clinic remains a recommended course of action.

We examine the heart for any physical or functional irregularities; this is shown by heart rate statistics and blood pressure. Your heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing are checked because they are the most vital statistics in determining if there is a cardiovascular problem.

A frequent issue in the field of cardiology includes chest pain, which can be caused by a number of factors and not necessarily stem from a risk of heart attack. Chest pain is a result of a number of issues, which include panic attacks, collapsed lung, pleurisy, costochondritis, sore muscles, or injured ribs. Less frequent causes can consist of anxiety, depression, aortic dissection, and systemic hypertension.

Treatments for chest pain can be home-based or provided by a professional source. Medications for chest pain include drugs that can relieve anxiety and pain, reduce acid in your stomach, or remove blood clots.

You can also make changes to your sleeping habits by receiving more hours of sleep to reduce chest pain. In addition, you can also maintain your blood pressure through this practice. More periods of sleep can allow the cardiovascular system to operate at stable levels, which reduces the risk of high blood pressure.
