SPRING 2020 VIM & VIGOR

AN UNLIKELY CANDIDATE
FOR HEART TROUBLE

When Wolverton got to the emergency
department, he described his symptoms and
the triage team ran an electrocardiogram,
or EKG. The test didn't show anything of
immediate concern.
Because of his age and therefore low likelihood of having a heart attack, Wolverton was
sent to the waiting room.
It was five hours before he would see a
physician, while doctors treated patients they
deemed more urgent, based on industry standard protocols. Wolverton's chest pain kept
getting worse.
Eventually, emergency staff ran bloodwork
and contacted the hospital's on-call cardiologist. Wolverton ended up staying the night,
and the cardiologist saw him the next day.
During the exam, the cardiologist told
Wolverton that, given his age, he probably had

age 28, Bearett Wolverton had a
lot on his plate: He was a husband,
a father and a student nearing the
end of seminary school. Who could
blame him, then, when he decided
to take a break and sit on his couch
at home in Texas to switch on some
football? "I was watching a playoff game and felt a jolt
in my chest and thought it was strange. But I really just
thought it was indigestion or heartburn; it would come
for about 10 or 15 minutes, and then it would go away for
a couple of hours," Wolverton says. "So it wasn't until the
next evening that I went to the ER to have it checked out."
Although he knew chest pain was a classic symptom
of heart attack, neither he nor his wife, Jennifer, thought
that's what it could be. The couple agreed Wolverton
would drive himself to the hospital and she would stay
home with their young daughter.
