The Gregorich family had always maintained good

health. In fact, when they were growing up, Geoff and Lynn

Gregorich’s kids hardly missed a day of school. Outside of

regular checkups, the Bothell

family was fortunate to avoid accidents or injuries that

required a trip to the hospital. PICTURED above: geoff and lynn gregorich

“I hadn’t so much as seen the inside of a hospital in many years,” Geoff Gregorich says. But when he visited his primary care provider for his annual physical exam in June 2012, the seemingly healthy 62-year-old was launched down a path of life-altering health events that would change his perspective entirely. “That physical probably saved my life,” Gregorich recalls. It was near the end of the routine exam when Gregorich’s primary care provider, Dr. Doug Portelance of EvergreenHealth Internal Medicine + Primary Care, listened to Gregorich’s heart and detected a faint arrhythmia. “It sounded to me like atrial fibrillation, which can be fairly common,” Dr. Portelance says of Gregorich’s slightly irregular heartbeat. An in-office electrocardiogram (EKG), which can measure the heart’s electrical activity, confirmed his suspicions. But there was something unusual about Gregorich’s presentation. He didn’t have any of the common risk factors for atrial fibrillation, so Dr. Portelance referred him to EvergreenHealth Heart & Vascular Care for additional tests.

Coordinated Care Bothell resident Geoff Gregorich was diagnosed with a rare heart tumor after a routine visit to his primary care provider revealed a slightly irregular heartbeat. In just a week’s time, Gregorich’s doctors, including primary care provider Dr. Doug Portelance, cardiologist Dr. William Getchell and cardiac surgeon Dr. Gautam Velamoor, worked swiftly and seamlessly to diagnose and remove the threatening mass, ultimately saving Gregorich’s life.

That evening, while the clinic was closing for the day, Dr. Getchell shared the diagnosis with Gregorich and immediately began making phone calls that would set Gregorich’s expedited care plan in motion. “I remember Dr. Getchell telling me that the good news was that my heart was in great shape, but the bad news

CPR Training Prevails When Minutes Matter Despite beginning with engine troubles and ending with a hospital stay, June 30, 2013, was one of the luckiest days of Tim Nugent’s life. PICTURED above: laura and Tim nugent

With one day left before the start of crab season, the 57-year-old Seattle resident was getting his boat ready for a three-day solo fishing trip, but things weren’t going as planned. Instead of heading out on the water, Nugent found himself laboring under the hot summer sun, trying to deal with the engine problems that were delaying his adventure.

For the next eight minutes, Laura and the 911 operator counted together as Laura performed hands-only CPR on her husband. She continued chest compressions until paramedics arrived on the scene and took Tim to EvergreenHealth.

Then the unimaginable happened. “The EvergreenHealth team was ready for Tim before he even got out of the ambulance,” says Laura. “There were people ready to take me to see him and tell me what was going on. There were wonderful nurses there to reassure me.”

“After piddling around outside, trying to figure out why the engine wasn’t running, he came into the house and told me he had a pain in the middle of his back,” says Laura Nugent, Tim’s wife. “He couldn’t figure out if he’d pulled a muscle trying to lift heavy crab pots into the boat or something like that, but he tried to lay down with an ice pack and nothing helped.”

And there were cardiac experts Dr. Christopher Price and Dr. William Getchell to care for Tim, who promptly recovered following the placement of two stents in his arteries. But the key to Tim’s health was his wife’s preparedness and quick thinking.

Moments later, Laura heard Tim call her name from the living room. “I’ve never heard him call me in that tone, in that way, so I grabbed my phone and went running to him,” she remembers. “I’m calling his name and shouting, ‘Are you OK?’ and I see his eyes are rolled back in his head, his tongue is hanging out and he isn’t breathing.”

Without CPR to keep Tim’s blood flowing, he could have suffered permanent brain injuries or heart damage. “Laura did a great job, and I am very fortunate to be alive,” says Tim, who made it through the life-threatening experience with just a few sore ribs. “It happened so quickly, and there was no warning. That’s why people really need to know CPR.”

Tim had suffered a heart attack—and Laura knew exactly what to do next. Although she was in a terrifying scenario, the 45-year-old CPR and first aid instructor kept her cool and called 911. Then she relied on the lifesaving skills she currently teaches bus drivers as part of her job with the Northshore School District.

Women & heart disease

Heart to Heart with Dr. Rachael Wyman While heart disease continues to be the leading cause of death among women, beating out all cancers combined, studies show that few women see it as the greatest threat to their health and longevity. EvergreenHealth Heart & Vascular Care Medical Director of Noninvasive Cardiology Dr. Rachael Wyman sat down with us to share what women should know about their risks and the important ways they can prevent heart disease by being informed and making smart choices.

Q:

There seems to be a greater emphasis on women’s cardiac health in recent years. Has that made an impact on the rates of women who suffer from heart disease? We’ve made a lot of progress over the last 15 years or so in raising awareness of heart disease as an equal opportunity disease—that it affects women just as it does men. And the good news is that the heart disease death rate in both men and women is declining, thanks in large part to the American Heart Association and its dedication to promoting cardiac health, in women especially. Still, more women die each year from heart disease than men, and there’s more we can be doing to prevent our risks.

08 EvergreenHealth Monitor

dr. rachael wyman

Q:

What are the best ways for women to prevent heart disease and maintain good cardiac health? When it comes to the heart, women must take charge of making the smart and healthy lifestyle choices they know they should be making but that often get overlooked. Beyond those good decisions, there are a number of noninvasive tests our specialists can run to measure your risk for heart complications. Those, along with taking a look at family history, can tell us a lot about the likelihood of heart disease. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, I tell women to listen to their intuition. If something does not seem right about how you feel, schedule an appointment with your doctor to get it checked out.


Women & heart disease

Q:

Who, among women, is at risk for heart disease?

It’s really important to know that heart disease can affect women at any age, regardless of family history and overall health. I do see a lot of women, though, who have put off seeking care because the disease often begins to develop at a time when they are their busiest. They are in their 50s or 60s, not yet retired, and stretched thin from taking care of others before themselves. Our tendency as women to delay getting care is often what accelerates the risk of the disease. For women who develop heart disease, it’s rarely from just one major risk factor. It’s typically a combination of several declining health attributes that compound each other: Her cholesterol is a bit off, her blood pressure is perhaps a little high, she’s gained some weight from inactivity and poor diet habits, and she’s recently had higher stress levels.

Q:

What warning signs should women watch for?

It’s often difficult to catch some of the major risk factors while they are developing. High cholesterol, high blood pressure and even diabetes are often fairly asymptomatic, and they offer few signs until they’re serious health issues. Women need to be diligent about communicating with their doctors and tracking their blood pressure and cholesterol levels over time. Women should also know the symptoms of acute cardiac distress and when to seek immediate medical care. Chest pain or discomfort is a common red flag, along with an achy, heavy feeling, which is an indicator of coronary artery disease. That feeling can radiate to the back, up into the jaw, down the arms or shoulders, oftentimes on the left side. Other symptoms, like shortness of breath, sweating or nausea or feeling excessively fatigued, are common, as well.

Did You Know? “Low-fat” and “heart-healthy” aren’t necessarily synonymous. In fact, studies show that eating a Mediterranean-style diet, which is rich in healthy fats, provides the most beneficial nutrition for reducing the risk of heart disease. Many of the healthy fats in a Mediterranean diet are unsaturated, and they primarily come from plant-based foods such as olive oil, nuts and certain vegetables. Unsaturated fats, when substituted for saturated fats, may reduce unhealthy low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels—often considered the “bad” cholesterol—and may help promote high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, which is good for your heart and your overall health.

Consider these Mediterranean-style diet guidelines when planning your next meal: • E  at plenty of plant-based foods, including fruits and leafy green vegetables, whole grains, legumes and nuts. • O  pt for fish or poultry as your main protein. •T  ry to limit red meat to just a few times a month. If you do eat red meat, choose lean cuts that are about the size of a deck of cards. • R  eplace butter with moderate amounts of olive oil or canola oil. • S  kip the salt and use fresh herbs and spices to enhance flavor. • P  air your meal with a glass of red wine—of course, this is optional and should be done in moderation.

Regaining Strength

as Part of a Heart Community After a heart attack, the thought of returning to exercise and physical activity is daunting. That’s how 57-year-old Woodinville resident Ted Perry—who’d been used to an active Northwest lifestyle—says he felt after he suffered a mild heart attack in April 2013. It was the night before Perry was planning to leave on a trip to Montana when he felt an ache toward the back of his jaw—a sensation unlike anything he’d ever felt before, but one he knew should be taken seriously. It turned out that despite his good physical condition, Perry had a previously undetected severe artery blockage that caused his symptoms to appear suddenly. His doctors at EvergreenHealth Heart & Vascular Care recommended a stenting procedure to clear the blockage, and after just two nights in the hospital, Perry was back at home, thankful his heart attack hadn’t been worse, but uncertain what the future might hold.

“Patients come to us as individuals and often leave as part of a greater heart community.”

“I was especially anxious about returning to exercise and wasn’t confident in starting to be active again,” Perry recalls. It was an unfamiliar role for this avid golfer, fly fisherman, hiker and sailor. Perry’s care team referred him to EvergreenHealth Heart & Vascular Wellness Services, which offers rehabilitation programs for all patients recovering from cardiac events. It’s where specialists with expertise in cardiology, exercise physiology, nutrition and pharmacology come together to

Did You Know? The American Heart Association recommends getting 30 minutes of exercise a day, but did you know that three 10-minute bursts are just as beneficial to your overall fitness as one 30-minute session? For more tips like these, visit www.evergreenhealth.com/ eatwellplaymore.

Most notably, it’s a place where patients can find a community of people who understand their challenges and who work side by side to overcome barriers that are both physical and emotional. “Patients come to us as individuals and often leave as part of a greater heart community,” explains Jeff Roberts, manager of EvergreenHealth Heart & Vascular Wellness Services. “There’s a healthy synergy among patients supporting

each other and between the providers who work oneon-one with them to reach their goals.” Perry was paired with Nancy Smith, a registered nurse and Heart & Vascular Wellness Services case manager, who worked with him to establish his exercise thresholds based on his heart-rate targets and the level of activity Perry hoped to achieve.

“Our goal is to help patients regain independence in a safe environment so that they’re comfortable being active at home,” Smith says. “That’s the benefit it gave me,” Perry adds. “The workouts were closely monitored so we could see exactly what was happening with my heart. It gave me a lot of security when doing some fairly strenuous activity.” Beyond the regular exercise sessions, Perry took advantage of educational classes that aim to help participants navigate lifestyle changes and lower their risk factors. “I learned that even at 57, I wasn’t the youngest person in the program and my heart attack wasn’t the most

severe. The camaraderie you build with others going through the same experience really helps. Everyone is in it together,” Perry says. But EvergreenHealth’s program and others like it across the country have proven to be more than just emotionally beneficial. “Patients who go through a cardiac rehabilitation program are generally among those with lower mortality rates,” Roberts adds. Still, despite that good news, national data from the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation indicates that such programs are a largely underutilized service, with just a fraction of eligible patients opting to participate. According to Roberts, however, EvergreenHealth’s participation rates are good, and impending changes to health care insurance coverage may encourage broader participation, as well. As for Perry, though he’s successfully completed his personalized 12-week rehabilitation program, he says the benefits—in the form of both the friendships and the knowledge he’s gained—continue to make an impact. He even plans to teach a fellow participant how to sail. “These are things that’ll stay with me the rest of my days,” he says.

Step by Step EvergreenHealth rehabilitation and wellness case manager Nancy Smith, RN, worked with Ted Perry on interval training techniques—which alternate higher-intensity exercise with lower-intensity recovery periods—to help the Woodinville resident gradually return to physical activity after a heart attack. Perry says he continues to use many of the exercises he learned in the rehabilitation program as part of his regular workouts today. PICTURED At LEFT: Nancy smith, rn, and ted perry
