Cardiac Services

When you aren’t feeling well, you need care as soon as possible. It can be difficult to have to wait to get the care that you need, especially when it comes to cardiac issues. It’s important that your heart is healthy and taken care of and you need to know what to do when you need urgent care for a non-life-threatening situation. There are certain types of cardiac services that you can receive in urgent care, and you should know when these can be necessary.

Receiving Cardiac Services in Urgent Care

It’s important that you know you should only go to urgent care for symptoms that are not life-threatening. If you’re dealing with symptoms that are severe and could affect your life, you need to go to the emergency room as soon as possible. That being said, there are many cardiac services that you can receive in urgent care.

Some common cardiac services offered in urgent care include:

  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Heart palpitations
  • Shortness of breath
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Slow heart rate
  • Fainting
  • Swelling of the legs
  • Pacemaker malfunction

Your urgent care doctor will be able to check your vitals and perform tests to determine what could be happening with your heart. It’s important that you’re able to get testing done as soon as possible so that a treatment plan can be made. Many conditions are easier to treat when symptoms are caught early, so it’s important not to hesitate and get the care that you need urgently.
