Chest Pain Center
When it comes to chest pain, it’s all about speed. Hospitals see a lot of patients with chest pain - in fact it is the most common reason they come to the ER. That’s why Chesapeake Regional Medical Center established a chest pain center within its Emergency Department to ensure that patients receive fast, accurate and state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment as soon as they arrive at its doors.
Through a partnership with Chesapeake ambulance services, EMS teams are able to perform EKGs in the field and send the information within seconds to the emergency department. This allows the cardiac team to be in place as soon as the patient arrives at the ER.
Once there, a highly skilled team with advanced knowledge in managing heart attacks provides rapid therapy to decide whether immediate medical treatment is warranted, further tests are needed or observation is necessary.
