Sleep Center of Indiana
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a serious condition that can put your heart health
at risk. With OSA, your upper airway collapses as many as 50 to 100
times an hour throughout the night, causing your breathing to stop. As
your body struggles to breathe, you may awaken and not know it, leading
to fatigue throughout the day.
Most significant, OSA prevents air from entering and exiting the
lungs so your heart has to work harder, which can cause serious risks to
your heart health. Located at St.Vincent Heart Center of Indiana, the
Sleep Center of Indiana provides diagnosis, advanced treatment, and
expert follow-up care by cardiologists from St.Vincent Medical Group.
The Sleep Center team is committed to working together to prevent
further damage to the heart as a result of sleep disorders.
If you feel sleepy during the day, have trouble concentrating, snore
or gasp for air when sleeping, wake up frequently during the night, or
have morning headaches, you could be at risk. To find out more about the
Sleep Center of Indiana, call 317-338-2152, or call toll-free at
Indiana Heart Attack Network
The Indiana Heart Attack Network (IHAN) is a cooperative effort between
St.Vincent Heart Center of Indiana, St.Vincent Medical Group, and
hospitals from around the state to provide the highest quality heart
care to patients. Regardless of where an individual may live in Indiana,
every hospital emergency department has immediate access to a
board-certified interventional cardiologist with St.Vincent Medical
Group located in Indianapolis.
This means that each hospital affiliated with IHAN is connected with
St.Vincent Heart Center of Indiana. When a patient arrives at a local
hospital emergency room with a heart attack, that hospital may call
St.Vincent Heart Center of Indiana to have the patient quickly and
efficiently transported to our facility for cardiovascular care.
Why is this important?
If a patient is having a heart attack, advanced cardiovascular care
helps increase the chances of surviving. IHAN was formed three years ago
out of a growing concern for heart attack patients and their families
coming from rural hospitals that may not have access to the higher level
of cardiovascular tertiary care. There was a shared vision among
physicians and administration to create a program to get patients to

minutes from the time the patient first arrives at their local emergency

blocked artery, the less damage will occur. Because St.Vincent Heart

possible to a cardiac program such as St.Vincent Heart Center of Indiana

Through IHAN, physicians, nurses, medics and other team members work

emergency medical care of heart attack patients around the state.
