Heart conditions can come with a range of symptoms and causes. Some of the most common conditions that we treat at iCare are:
Congestive Heart Failure
Congestive heart failure is a chronic condition that occurs when fluid leaks into the lungs and other parts of the body because one or both ventricles of the heart begin to fail, often caused by other conditions that have weakened the heart muscle. Symptoms of congestive heart failure include coughing and wheezing, unusual swelling in the legs and ankles, sudden fluid retention, weight gain, fatigue and weakness, increased heart rate, suffocation feeling while sleeping, and digestive problems.
An irregular heartbeat is a condition in which your heart palpitates, pounds, or races from an abnormal condition of the heart. It can also be stress or anxiety-induced arrhythmias, in which the heart skips a beat at times and is brought on situationally.
A heart attack is a serious emergency in which blood is blocked from flowing through the heart. Symptoms range from mild to severe and may include chest discomfort, chest pain, stomach pain, pain or a tingling sensation in the neck or the left arm, shortness of breath, anxiety, lightheadedness, sweating, nausea and vomiting, weakness, or heartburn.
High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is a heart condition, which can be chronic, occuring when blood is pumped through the artery walls with more force than usual. Often without a known cause, the symptoms of high blood pressure can include headaches, dizziness, nosebleeds, fatigue, chest pain, shortness of breath, or stroke.

"I came here with my son tonight, who was injured in a bad fall. I was worried that his wrist was broken, and x-rays did reveal a break. My rating is for everyone we encountered, from the friendly and helpful front office receptionist, to the two excellent assistants, to the wonderful doctor who took great care of him tonight. This was his first broken bone, but they were kind and gentle and good natured with him, and made it so much easier on him. The location is ideal for us, the front lobby area and exam rooms were all very nice, clean and comfortable."- E.S. / Yelp / Apr 18, 2018

Since heart conditions can be some of the most serious health risks, we recommend visiting the iCare in Frisco or South Fort Worth immediately if you experience the symptoms listed above. These conditions can be detrimental to your health if you are not treated medically. If you need emergency care for a heart attack, relief from high blood pressure, or anything in between, come in to iCare for treatment.
What to Expect
When you visit the iCare, our team of exceptional and experienced physicians will immediately assess your situation and determine whether you should be treated in the ER or in urgent care. In most cases, patients with heart conditions are sent to the ER, especially if the condition is life threatening.
After a medical history interview and a physical examination, our team may perform further tests, such as chest X-rays, electrocardiograms, echocardiograms, nuclear ventriculograms, cardiac catheterization, or blood tests. Once you are diagnosed, you will be treated in a variety of ways depending on the type and severity of your condition. For congestive heart failure, irregular heartbeats, and high blood pressure, our team may prescribe varying medications and behavioral changes to manage your symptoms. For heart attacks, treatment may range from anti-coagulant medication, thrombolytic therapy, nitrates, ACLS (advanced cardiovascular life support), catheters, or central venous line insertion.
