At Altus Emergency Center for cardiology in 77657, once we have verified that you are having an acute coronary syndrome or a heart attack, our first goal in treating this emergency is to open the blocked artery quickly. This will help restore the flow of blood to your heart muscle and prevent any heart muscle damage.
It will minimize the damage to your heart muscle and preserve your hearts pumping function. Delaying this blood flow can cause irreversible heart muscle damage and reduce the force with which your heart pumps to what heart muscle you have left.
If blood flow can be restored within four to six hours after the heart attack or within 90 minutes from the patient’s entry into the ER until they undergo their procedure restoring blood flow, it is best for the heart muscle.
The best direct method to open a blocked artery is by immediate cardiac catheterization and angioplasty or possibly a stent.
Remember, time is muscle.
