Coronary Artery Disease

CAD occurs when a buildup of plaque clogs the arteries.

Coronary artery disease can take decades to develop. But its effects can be felt in an instant when unchecked blockage results in a heart attack. Rex McGee was one of the lucky ones — when a heart scan at INTEGRIS alerted cardiologists to the firefighter’s heart disease, they scheduled surgery immediately. Without the scan, Rex would no doubt have been working the triple-fatality fire that occurred that next week. As he says, "I would have probably been the fourth victim of that fire."
