The Heart of St. Francis | E1

It’s early in the morning at St. Francis Hospital & Heart Center. Dr. Richard Shlofmitz arrives at the Cath Lab at 4:45AM and immediately begins fielding calls, meeting with patients, and performing the first of many angiograms he’ll complete before the day is over. He meets with Edmond, a patient scheduled for an exploratory angiogram and CAT scan. When the resulting images reveal complications, including a nodule on the lung, Edmond and his medical team talk about this new discovery and next steps.   Down the hall, Dr. Evan Shlofmitz receives a visit from his pregnant wife. He plans to deliver the baby himself, but the uncertainty of her due date poses challenges for him in scheduling his work week. The day ends with Dr. Richard Shlofmitz heading out to dinner with his family. In the middle of the entrée, he receives an urgent call from the hospital—someone in the emergency room is having a heart attack.
