"Back to enjoying life after sudden heart attack"

Dennis lived by the motto, “anything I want to do, I go do it,” until a sudden heart attack stopped him in his tracks. During his Life Flight to Pittsburgh, Dennis’s heart stopped and he was diverted to the closest cardiac unit - the BHS Heart Team at Butler Health System. Here, the cardiac team sprang into action and performed an emergency procedure to place a stent and Impella Heart Pump to decrease the workload on his heart. Now Dennis is back doing whatever he wants and feeling even better while doing it.
