Cardiac Wellness and Management Clinics

We offer ongoing management of heart-related conditions and treatments. Our cardiac wellness and management clinics share a common goal: an improved quality of life for our patients.

Anticoagulant Clinic

Anticoagulation (blood-thinning) medication therapy requires close monitoring to prevent bleeding complications. Our specially trained staff provides instruction on appropriate diet as well as medication management and risks.

Cardiac Device Clinic

Just like patients, implanted electrical pacemakers and defibrillators need regular check-ups. Experienced staff members are trained to assess device function, lead integrity, battery status, and more with the aid of using state-of-the-art computerized databases and programmers. They can monitor implantable cardiac devices 24 hours a day, wherever patients are. This allows our staff to contact the patient's physician and the UMMC care team to quickly respond if a life-threatening arrhythmia is detected.

Diabetes Management Clinic

Diabetes mellitus is a disorder of the body in which either the pancreas produces little or no insulin, or cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. UMMC specialists, including a certified diabetes educator, work closely with patients to manage diet and medications to prevent complications from diabetes-related symptoms, including heart disease. The specially trained staff provides initial evaluation and program set-up for patients with poorly controlled Type 2 or adult Type 1 diabetes.
