Heart & Vascular 

Your heartbeat is a precious sound. 

Every day the average heart beats nearly 100,000 beats per day, pumping an amount of blood that equals about 1 million barrels of blood during an average lifetime. Along the way, you may experience difficulty with congestive heart failure, angina or arrhythmia. Any of these cardiac conditions can leave you low on energy, short of breath or in real danger of a heart attack or stroke. North Shore Medical Center is available to answer your questions, and be your partner in heart health.
