There’s a saying in cardiology: “Time is muscle.”
In laymen’s terms, the saying means that the sooner doctors restore blood flow after a cardiac event, the healthier the heart muscle and the patient will be. Columbus Community Hospital’s new cardiac catheterization lab puts time on a patient’s side. The hospital’s new cardiac cath lab is fully equipped with advanced technology to perform minimally invasive tests and procedures that will diagnose and treat heart disease on-site. In the past, Columbus Community Hospital needed to transport critically ill patients to large facilities that had cardiac cath labs. With its new cath lab, staff will be able to treat those patients in-house, decreasing the time from diagnosis to restored blood flow — leading to healthier heart muscles and healthier patients. It’s lifesaving care, right here at home.
