Invasive Cardiovascular Services
Invasive Cardiovascular Services, the Cardiac Catheterization Labs, are equipped with “state of the art” equipment to care for patients requiring diagnostic and interventional imaging procedures involving arteries in the heart and peripheral vessels. Experienced staff are available to care for patients 24 hours a day seven days a week for emergency procedures.
Non-invasive Cardiovascular Services
Non-invasive Cardiovascular Services range from electrocardiogram (ECG) and ambulatory cardiac monitoring, (Holter Monitor and Arrhythmia Loop Monitors) to Echocardiography. A variety of cardiac and vascular procedures are performed by the Echocardiographers to diagnose abnormalities within the cardiac and vascular systems. Experienced staff are available to care for patients 24 hours a day seven days a week for emergency procedures.
Stress testing for patients within our community can be scheduled for our outpatient population as well as our patients in the hospital. Nuclear medicine and echocardiography is used to enhance the stress test. If a patient is unable to walk on the treadmill, a medication may be used to stress the heart in place of exercise to stress the heart.
