If it pertains to your heart or lungs
The Cardiopulmonary department is here to serve you.
It is our goal and commitment to provide our patients with quality care at the highest level.
As our name implies the Cardiopulmonary department has a dual nature, Cardio (heart) and Pulmonary
The Cardiopulmonary department at Medical Arts Hospital has a dual natured responsibility to our patients. The Cardio part of our name indicates our dedication to cardiac and heart health related activities. In this capacity the department performs ECG’s for hospital patients and as an Outpatient service to Physicians locally and out of town. Our computerized system allows us to send ECG’s directly to medical records giving affiliated Physicians access to the records anytime. This process eliminates time and paperwork while simultaneously granting access to previous tests for comparison.
The Pulmonary part of our name indicates our commitment to the highest level of respiratory care. The department provides comprehensive service to all aspects of respiratory care for our patients. A few of the many respiratory therapies we provide are:
- Metered dose inhaler
The department has also recently added the ability to perform exercise stress testing in conjunction with our local Physicians and visiting Cardiologists. An integral part of the team performing nuclear stress testing at MAH, our staff assists Radiology and Nursing with this highly technical procedure. Both exercise and nuclear testing are vital tools in diagnosing the presence and severity of cardiac disease. These diagnostic tools allow the community access to advanced and critical care in a timely and cost-effective method.
- Aerosolized medication delivery
- Incentive spirometry
- Ventilator care
- Tracheostomy care
We also provide essential diagnostic tools for our patients, including:
- Arterial Blood Gas analysis
- Pulmonary Function testing
- Peak Flow testing
- 24 hour pulse oximetry
