Oftentimes, heart health is put on the back burner by people until it affects them. To shine a light on this topic, we’ve talked to Dr. Peyton Card of the Arkansas Heart Hospital.
This year, the Arkansas Heart Hospital is celebrating its 25th anniversary! He shares his experience while leading the COVID response unit, information about their Keep the Beat program, and the impact mental health has on the heart.
“Our Keep the Beat program is the ultimate cardiovascular screening program for many patients who have had a loved one that had a cardiac event, or if their family members have had problems they decide they want to get checked out,” said Dr. Card. “We check your labs and do some baseline imaging studies to see if you’re at a higher risk of having a blockage in your heart and things like that.”
To see if you’re eligible for the Keep the Beat Comprehensive Heart Screening, visit HERE. It’s $99 and includes nine components to build your cardiovascular risk profile. Dr. Card said to celebrate the hospital’s anniversary, there may be specials happening this year.
