Brian set down his tools and walked across the driveway to the emergency department. Once there, he met acute care nurses Barb and Lori who evaluated his condition. Tests showed that Brian was having a heart attack, and he was rushed to the cardiac catherization lab to have two stents placed in his heart.
During a heart attack, blood flow to the heart muscle is blocked and one or more areas of the heart don't get enough oxygen, causing serious issues. Cardiologist Christopher Chiu, MD oversaw the procedure to open the blocked arteries.
