Educational Resources

We provide educational tools, as well as programs, which can help you and your family members better understand your conditions, tests, and treatments. In addition, these resources and programs can help you learn how to cope with an ongoing condition, as well as how to adopt the lifestyle habits to help you lead a healthier life. We believe that understanding your condition or treatment is important in making your visit easier and helping you recover more quickly. The types of resources we offer include:

  • Baylor Heart and Vascular Institute. Patients and their families can learn more about heart and vascular clinical trials and treatments.
  • Patient Education on Baylor TV. Baylor's closed-circuit television (BTV) provides patient education programs on heart disease and heart and vascular procedures. To watch BTV, dial "36813" on your patient telephone and follow the recorded prompts, or ask for nursing assistance. For additional programming, see the BTV guide posted in your patient room.
  • Other Programs. We offer programs for individuals and families pre- and post- cardiac procedure. Our Leap for Life® program holds free two hour workshops on managing heart disease for Baylor heart patients, Baylor Senior Health Center members, and community guests.
