  • Should You Be Concerned About Heart Murmurs?

    Healthcare

    When listening to the sound of a heartbeat, it isn’t uncommon for medical professionals to also hear an unusual or different sound; this additional sound is called a “ heart murmur .”  While this common condition isn’t necessarily an indicator of poor health, in some cases it could be an early indicator of severe congenital heart defects or heart valve disease.  This overview about cardiovascular health may help clarify what a heart murmur is and when to follow up with a heart specialist here at Sunrise Hospital:

    • How the Heart Works
      A normal, healthy heart pumps about 1,800 gallons of blood a day.  The heart is split into four distinct chambers which are separated from one another by a thin layer of tissue called the septum.  These four chambers work in coordination with several valves to circulate blood through the lungs and the rest of the body.  An issue in any one of the chambers, valves, or septum membrane can result in an abnormal heart murmur.
       
    • Innocent Heart Murmurs vs. Abnormalities
      Innocent (also functional or physiological) heart murmurs pose no health threat to the patient, and are most commonly found in healthy children.  Innocent heart murmurs generally disappear when a child reaches adulthood.  In some cases, a child or adult may exhibit an abnormal heart murmur resulting from a leakage of blood back into the heart or similar problems.
       
    • Potential Risks and Treatments
      Abnormal heart murmurs found in children are most often the result of congenital birth defects.  According to the AHA, about nine out of 1,000 children will suffer from congenital heart defects .  In adults, certain conditions such as atherosclerosis (plaque buildup), heart failure, and heart attack may alter a healthy valve structure and result in later problems.

    Here at Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center of Southern Nevada, we have taken steps to stay at the forefront of acute medical treatment through targeted investments in the latest technologies and procedures.  Learn more about our heart and vascular care facilities by calling (702) 233-5300 or visiting us online today.

  • Would You Ignore the Signs of Stroke?

    Although the warning signs of stroke can be slightly different for every victim, most stroke sufferers experience one or more of the characteristic symptoms: numbness or weakness on one side of the body, vision changes, severe headache, problems with speech, or coordination issues. As you’ll learn in this video, these signs are symptomatic of a serious medical event that can lead to permanent disability and even death if not treated immediately. Don’t ignore the symptoms—learn to recognize them and call 9-1-1 if they occur. 

    Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center is never closed to you and your family. If you are ever in need of emergency medical services, do not hesitate to visit our caring, skilled emergency healthcare team.

  • Stroke Risk Factors

    Hypertension

    A stroke is a dangerous medical event that can result in long-term disability and even death. According to the National Stroke Association, stroke is the fourth leading cause of death and the number one cause of adult disability in the United States. Fortunately, there are steps that every person can take to reduce their risk of suffering from the complications of these “brain attacks.” Knowing your risk factors and discussing preventive treatments with your doctor is often the best way to avoid a stroke —read on to learn more about the most important factors that affect the development of cerebrovascular events.

    The factors that are known to increase a person’s risk for a stroke are divided into two main categories: controllable and uncontrollable risk factors. Controllable risk factors are those that can be changed with alterations in lifestyle. Uncontrollable risk factors are factors you can’t change, and include sex, family history, and age. Below are listed some of the most important modifiable, controllable risk factors for stroke.

    • High levels of cholesterol
      High levels of LDL, or “bad,” cholesterol can promote the development of fatty plaques in the arteries of the brain. These plaques can eventually inhibit healthy circulation and lead to an ischemic stroke.
       
    • High blood pressure
      Suffering from chronic high blood pressure (hypertension) can damage the walls of the arteries and make them more likely to rupture or tear. Eating a healthy diet can help you to control high blood pressure and decrease your risk of a hemorrhagic stroke.
       
    • Tobacco use
      Smoking cigarettes or using chewing tobacco affects almost every part of your body. Quitting smoking as soon as possible will dramatically improve your overall health and decrease your risk of stroke, cancer, and heart disease.
       
    • Diabetes
      Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to a variety of health complications that increase your risk for a stroke. Work closely with your physician to restore normal blood sugar levels and manage your condition.

    You can also learn more about your possible risk for a stroke by consulting with your primary care physician or cardiology specialist. To find an experienced physician in the Las Vegas area, contact the Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center Consult-A-Nurse healthcare referral line at (702) 233-5300. Our nurses will help you to find the right physician to suit your needs.
