The Emmy-winning television series Minds of Medicine will give a behind-the-scenes view of physicians at four Henry Ford hospitals, including Wyandotte, on the program tonight.
The show airs at 8 p.m. on WDIV-TV4.
Minds of Medicine: Innovating by Heart will tell the story of how doctors at Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital saved a man's life during his heart attack.
Chuck Orozco, a Downriver business owner, is the patient that will be featured on the show.
Orozco drove himself to the Henry Ford Health Center in Brownstown during his heart attack, according to a press release from Henry Ford Health System.
Once the heart attack was identified, he was transferred by ambulance to Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital.
Mustafa Hashem, M.D., medical director, Catheterization Lab, treated Orozco with balloon angioplasty, which is a technique used to dilate an area of arterial blockage with the help of a catheter that has a small balloon at its tip.
The team of doctors was prepared for his arrival because of the equipment and technology systems that first responders use to detect heart attacks.
The systems send signals from the ambulance to emergency room doctors, who can see the patient's heart rhythms while the patient is on the way.
Henry Ford hospitals in Detroit, Clinton Township and West Bloomfield will also be featured on Minds of Medicine.
