Heart and Vascular Services at Bartow Regional Medical Center
At Bartow Regional Medical Center, we provide comprehensive, technologically advanced heart care delivered by knowledgeable, experienced cardiac professionals. Our highly experienced specialists offer state-of-the-art heart care, from diagnosis and emergency intervention to the latest treatments, preventive education and rehabilitation.
At the heart of the matter is our new STEMI program. Thanks to an upgrade and renovation to our cardiac cath lab, we’ve got a new process to quickly treat STEMIs, one of the most severe types of heart attack. The best way to deal with STEMIs is by performing a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) within 90 minutes of first receiving care from emergency medical personnel. Not all hospitals have this capability. But now Bartow Regional Medical Center does.
What is a STEMI?
“ST” Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI) is a severe type of heart attack occurring when a completely blocked coronary artery causes a prolonged blockage of the blood supply to the heart. A STEMI must be treated quickly to avoid permanent heart damage. Time translates into muscle loss, so patients suffering a STEMI are taken to the closest hospital that can treat this type of heart attack. If you see the signs of a heart attack in yourself or someone else, you want to go to a hospital that has all the expertise and skills you need for emergency intervention.
Advanced diagnostic and imaging technology to determine the type and extent of heart disease.
Comprehensive heart failure care with the latest treatment options.
