Treating heart failure is complex. Intermountain Healthcare has established a comprehensive program to reduce the risk of patients returning unexpectedly to the hospital. Our efforts have resulted in readmission rates that are among the best in the nation.
Heart arrhythmia issues are common. Luckily, they can almost always be cured. But treatment results are not the same everywhere.
Utilizing proven technology and techniques, one Utah healthcare organization solves arrhythmia problems more often with better results, helping people feel better and live longer. That organization is Intermountain Healthcare.
When a person suffers a heart attack, faster treatment means less damage to the heart. With the most severe heart attack, called a STEMI, there’s a critical 90-minute window to get treatment to help minimize the damage to the heart. In the past three years, 100% of our STEMI patients received treatment before the 90-minute national American College of Cardiology’s standard. Because of our cohesive teamwork, we have half the mortality rate of the national average, allowing us to help more people go home.
Regular fasting may be good for your heart. That’s the finding of a new study from Intermountain Healthcare doctors who looked at the relationship between periodic fasting and cardiovascular disease. The researchers interviewed 200 patients who were undergoing a diagnostic test called angiography, an X-ray exam of the blood vessels and heart chambers that can determine if a person has coronary heart disease. They found that those who fasted regularly were less likely to be diagnosed with heart problems.
Intermountain Healthcare is leading the nation by implementing a new life-saving technology: the wireless pacemaker. This small, wireless capsule serves as a less invasive alternative to the traditional pacemaker.
Using data from thousands of past patients, Intermountain researchers have discovered a link between heart health and Alzheimer’s.
Initially, there were 10 genes known to be related to heart disease. Intermountain Healthcare researchers have been part of an international team that has discovered an additional 13.
A new magnetic catheter opens up possibilities for heart patients, allowing our heart experts to perform a procedure never before done in the United States: inserting a heart pump during an arrhythmia procedure.
There’s nothing new in using catheters to fix heart problems. What’s new is replacing an entire aortic valve using a catheter. That means a small, inch-wide incision for major heart surgery. Which in turn means a person may be back to their normal activities sooner.
There’s only one Utah healthcare organization qualified to perform this procedure: Intermountain Healthcare. Just one of many reasons we’re Utah’s heart care leader.
We are the region's only pediatric Melody Heart Valve program. The melody heart valve procedure allows us to replace the pulmonary valve without opening the chest for surgery.
There is widespread evidence to show that heart failure medications and devices can improve survival, but results from a new study show that providing patient education is just as important.
When a person suffers a heart attack, faster treatment means less damage to the heart. In the past three years, 100% of our STEMI patients received treatment before the 90-minute national American College of Cardiology’s standard.
We provide children with pulmonary valve disease a less invasive alternative to open heart surgery. As the only pediatric Melody Heart Valve program in the region, we help children like Cadence feel better, faster. We’re also one of the highest volume centers in the nation. Our experience means more children can enjoy their childhood.
Intermountain created the world’s largest cardiovascular database to better research and cure heart disease. Our research breakthroughs, like the discovery of 13 new genetic markers for heart disease, open doors for more responsive care.
