Our Cardiology Services Department, located in the Outpatient Services area, uses state-of-the-art technology to evaluate heart function and diagnose heart disease and disorders.
All Cardiology tests must have a physician’s order. The types of tests we offer include:
EKG: A brief recording of the electrical impulses or rhythm of the heart.
Holter Monitoring: This 24 to 48 hour test records the heart rhythm over a period of time. While the test is being conducted, the patient keeps a diary of activities so that it can be matched to any unusual activity in the heart.
Event Monitoring: During this diagnostic procedure, the patient wears a heart monitor for 30 days. The monitor records unusual heart rhythm when activated by the patient.
Echocardiography: An Ultrasound test used to assess the function of the heart. An Echocardiogram can examine the heart muscle, heart valves and blood flow through the heart.
Cardiac Rehabiliation: This program benefits a patient who has experienced a recent heart related illness, surgery or intervention. Learn more about our Cardiopulmonary Rehabilition programs.
Stress Testing: This type of test provides information on how well your heart works when physically stressed. Stress testing assists your phsycian in diagnosing coronary (heart) disease, assessing response to current treatment and/or monitoring disease progression. All stress tests are personally supverised by a cardiologist.
