EMERGENCY CARDIAC CARE

When it comes to emergency treatment of a heart attack, quick intervention is necessary to prevent permanent damage to heart muscle and function. In the White Plains Hospital emergency department, patients diagnosed with symptoms of a heart attack can be rushed upstairs to one of the Hospital's two cardiac catheterization laboratories. There, a team of interventional cardiologists, nurses, and cardiovascular technicians can perform an emergency angioplasty, a minimally invasive procedure which uses a catheter, balloons, and stents to re-open clogged coronary arteries.
