She described it as feeling like sparklers were going of in her chest and experienced heavy pressure accompanied by nausea. Having sufered a heart attack and bypass surgery fve years earlier, Lori knew something wasn't right. Her friend drove her to the nearest fre station where an EMS unit was stationed. While in the Rural Metro ambulance, Lori was administered a pre-hospital EKG, which allowed the emergency physicians at Floyd Memorial Hospital to view it prior to her arrival. As a result, the cardiologist on call, Floyd Memorial Medical Group's, Surender Sandella, M.D., was able to determine she was having a heart attack. Te team prepared to bring Lori to the catheterization lab to clear the blockage in her heart at her arrival. It took 41 minutes from reaching the hospital doors to perform Lori's stent placement procedure, which saved her life and minimized the damage to her heart. "Te sooner a blockage is found and removed, the less damage is done to that portion of the heart. If a large amount of the heart muscle is injured, it can weaken the heart's pumping ability, which can lead to heart failure and/or death." explained Dr. Sandella. Lori is now back to teaching class and able to live a normal lifestyle. For more information on services available at Floyd Memorial's Heart and Vascular Center, call (812) 949-7088.
