We Carefully Diagnose and Treat Cardiovascular Issues

Heart issues are rarely insignificant, so if you experience chest pain, shortness of breath, an elevated pulse, or sudden weakness, see a medical professional immediately. The team at Exceptional Emergency Center in Texas has dealt with myriad heart issues through the years, and we can quickly identify what may be causing them and how to treat them effectively. Heart diseases come in many different varieties, but they should all be taken seriously. Types of heart disease we can address at our locations throughout Texas include:

  • Coronary Artery Disease – Blockage in the coronary arteries can prohibit the heart muscles from getting enough blood and oxygen. This condition may be accompanied by chest pain, dizziness, or fatigue.
  • Silent Ischemia – A form of coronary artery disease, silent ischemia typically produces little pain outside of periods of physical exertion but limits blood flow to the heart.
  • Angina – When your heart does not get enough oxygen and nutrients, you may suffer from angina, which often results in chest pain, shortness of breath, and numbness, among other symptoms.
  • Heart Attack – Otherwise known as a myocardial infarction, a heart attack can be fatal due to the blockage of blood flow to your heart. At the initial sign of chest pain, contact Exceptional Emergency Center for care.

Our Team Is Equipped to Handle Strokes

A stroke is a very severe medical condition that requires attention from a physician immediately. Inaction can lead to permanent complications or even death. A stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted, causing cells to begin to die. If you or a loved one notices symptoms such as a drooping face, downward-drifting arm, sudden dizziness or confusion, difficulty seeing, or slurred speech, get to an Exceptional Emergency Center in Texas right away. Stroke treatment is time-sensitive. Various types of stroke include:

  • Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) – Classified as a warning or mini-stroke, a TIA involves a temporary blockage of blood flow with short-lived symptoms.
  • Ischemic Stroke – Characterized by a blood clot continually flowing to the brain, an ischemic stroke cannot be remedied without medical treatment.
  • Hemorrhagic Stroke – If a blood vessel in your brain ruptures or breaks, it will spill blood into surrounding tissues.
  • Embolic Stroke – A blood clot that breaks free from a vessel somewhere in the body and reaches the brain through the bloodstream can block the flow of blood and cause an embolic stroke.

Our medical staff will use state-of-the-art equipment in an advanced, modern facility to help identify, diagnose, and treat strokes, but it is imperative that you visit us as soon as you notice any symptoms.

COVID-19 TESTING UPDATE:

The Exceptional Emergency Room staff and physicians care about you and your loved ones. We are here 24/7 for all your emergency care needs.

  1. If you are experiencing fever, shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness, weakness, numbness, sensory loss, or any other emergent medical problems, please call 911 or seek medical care immediately at your nearest Emergency Room.
  2. To provide the highest quality emergency medical care to our communities, we are directing all routine COVID testing to outpatient community resources.
  3. Testing through local resources, including your primary care doctor, urgent care, walk-in clinic, or local health department, is appropriate under the following circumstances:
    1. If you have been exposed to a person known to have COVID, and you do not have symptoms, we recommend that you self-quarantine at home and seek testing 4-5 days after exposure. It often takes this long for the infection to be detected by routine lab testing.
    2. If you have no symptoms or very mild symptoms, outpatient testing is also typically appropriate.
    3. Please follow this link for local COVID testing resources.
  4. If you have tested negative, you should still self-quarantine for 14 days from the day of suspected exposure as it can take anywhere from 2-14 days to come down with symptoms of this infection.
  5. Please kindly limit your phone time with our Emergency Rooms as the phone lines are needed to communicate with other health care entities and to provide patients their test results. Thank you for your understanding during this trying time.
