Diane hadn’t chosen a career path until an acquaintance introduced her to the world of perfusion. Now, as a perfusionist at McLeod, she plays a critical role in operating the machine that acts as a patient’s heart during cardiac surgery.

Recently celebrating 30 years in the industry, Diane finds it inspirational to be part of a team that significantly contributes to patients spending more time with their families. “It is a very rewarding career. We welcome anyone interested in seeing what a wonderful career it is to come and shadow us,” said Diane.

Stress can make it more likely you'll have a stroke, maybe because it causes inflammation in parts of your body. If you're stressed at work, try some simple things to help dial it back. Get up and move around often, breathe deeply and focus on one task at a time. Make your work area a calm space with plants and soft colors. The medical professionals of McLeod Health Cheraw advise time away from the office is important to one’s overall health.

Transient ischemic attacks, often called "mini-strokes," are an emergency. When they happen, blood flow is temporarily hampered in part of the brain, causing stroke-like symptoms. When the blood flows again, the symptoms stop. You can’t tell at the time if it was a stroke or TIA, but it should be considered a warning sign. The medical professionals of McLeod Health Dillon advise to make the lifesaving choice and call 911.

After a stroke, if you have conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, atrial fibrillation, or heart disease, your doctor will prescribe medication to treat them. People at high risk may need to take anti-platelet medicines, such as aspirin, to help prevent blood clots. The medical professionals of McLeod Health Loris Emergency Department say some people may need anti-clotting drugs, such as warfarin.

Atrial fibrillation (AFib), or an irregular heart rhythm, makes you five times more likely to have a stroke. If you notice a racing or irregular heartbeat, see your doctor to find out the cause. If it's AFib, medicine may be used to lower your heart rate and cut the odds you'll develop blood clots. The medical experts of McLeod Health Seacoast say that in some cases, they may try to reset your heart's rhythm with medication or a brief electrical shock.

Diabetes affects how the body uses glucose, an important source of energy for the brain and the cells that make up muscles and tissues.

Lamont earned a four-year business management degree but realized it wasn’t his passion. When he discovered Nuclear Medicine as a possible career, it piqued his interest.

In Nuclear Medicine, he performs patient scans to assess organ function. Lamont says these are not quick tests, so he gets to enjoy spending a lot of time with his patients.

“For those looking for a career that emphasizes patient interaction and a slower pace, you should explore becoming a Nuclear Medicine Technologist,” says Lamont.

High levels of LDL, or "bad" cholesterol, and low levels of HDL, "good" cholesterol, can raise your chances of having plaque buildup in your arteries, which limits blood flow and can lead to a stroke. Cutting down on saturated and trans fats can help lower your LDL, and exercise can boost your HDL. The medical professionals of the McLeod Regional Medical Center Emergency Department say your doctor may also prescribe medication to help with cholesterol levels.

Some strokes are due to narrowed carotid arteries, which are on both sides of the neck and bring blood to the brain. People who’ve had a mild stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) may be candidates for carotid endarterectomy, where a vascular surgeon removes plaque from the lining of the carotid arteries. The medical experts of McLeod Vascular Associates recommend asking your doctor about the risks, benefits and recovery.

This past spring, 35 high school seniors challenged themselves to explore careers in healthcare through the McLeod Health Careers Program. These students represent: Horry County Schools, Florence One Schools, Florence School District Two, Florence School District Three, Florence School District Five, Darlington County School District and Marion County School District.

During the semester, these students completed 120 hours of work-based learning observation, research, project development and career engagement with clinical and non-clinical professionals. They worked hard to gain exposure to the large variety of careers in healthcare and learned how to be better prepared to enter the workforce. We would like to congratulate these special young adults as they graduate high school and enter the next phase of their professional career journey.
