Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. For instance, if you are a man in your forties or a postmenopausal woman with high blood pressure, or if you have high blood sugar levels or smoke, you may be at high risk of developing a heart condition. In a cardio emergency (myocardial infarction or heart attack), quick and appropriate access to care can be a matter of life and death. The amount of damage done to the heart is directly impacted by the amount of time it takes from arrival in the emergency room to the insertion of a catheter.

Up until now, catheterization services have only been available at Querétaro and Celaya hospitals. With increasing traffic on the highways, getting there takes more time, therefore increasing the risk that proper and timely treatment may be too late. The cardiovascular unit at H+ Hospital San Miguel was created to save lives.

H+ Hospital San Miguel is now part of a select group of private hospitals in Mexico with a cardiovascular unit. They are now offering stent surgery, angioplasty, and pacemakers as well as heart check-ups and diagnostic testing services (echocardiogram, stress test, EKG, Holter, for example). The goal is to treat patients in cardiac arrest quickly, securely, and efficiently. By doing so, the patient´s opportunity to regain a normal life increases dramatically.

The H+ San Miguel Cardiology Team will give a talk at La Casona Convention Center on the common signs of cardiovascular disease, preventative measures, as well as treatment options at H+ Hospital. They will also introduce the new H+ Cardiac Care Unit and discuss all of the advanced cardiac services now available.

Come meet the cardiology team of doctors: Dr. René Reyes received his medical degree from Universidad de Guanajuato and his cardiology and his interventional cardiology degrees from the prestigious Instituto Nacional de Cardiología in Mexico City. Dr. Santiago Casal received his medical degree from Universidad Autónoma de Querétaro and his advanced degrees in cardiology and internal medicine from the Instituto Nacional de Cardiología Ignacio Chávez.

Join us at the La Casona Convention Center for this free inaugural event on Wednesday, May 30, 6–7:30pm. Cocktails will be served afterwards.

We ask those interested to RSVP beforehand. Please email peaceofmindsma@gmail.com or call Cell: 415 108 0810 or Vonage 971-327-7187 to notify us of your participation.

This medical lecture is presented by Peace of Mind and H+ Hospital San Miguel. Peace of Mind is a community service project created by Melanie Lansing and Mexico Insurance Advisors as a means to raise awareness among the English-speaking community on how to be prepared for medical emergencies in San Miguel.
