The Cardiopulmonary team provides assistance for neonate, pediatric, and adult critical care. We provide a variety of non-invasive cardiopulmonary services for hospital, clinical, and outpatient procedures.
Services that may be acquired as an outpatient include the following:

  • 3, 7, 14 and 30-day Event Monitor
  • 24-48 hr Holter Monitor
  • Arterial Blood Gas Testing
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG)
  • Oximetry testing for home Oxygen qualification
  • Pulmonary Function Screening (Spirometry)
3, 7, 14, and 30 Day Event Monitor
These heart monitoring devices range from a single “patch” to a cellphone like device with wires. Some devices are water resistant, while others can be temporarily removed to allow for showering.

30 minutes should be allowed for this procedure.
Results will be interpreted by our onsite cardiologist, then forwarded to the ordering physician.

24-48 Hr. Holter Monitor
This heart monitoring device is worn for 24 or 48 hours. Can be removed briefly for showering, then reapplied.

Initial hookup allow 20 minutes followed by a quick visit 24 or 48 hours later for device return.

Results will be interpreted by our onsite cardiologist, then forwarded to the ordering physician.

Arterial Blood Gas Testing
This is a specialized test that involves an invasive needle stick to collect an arterial blood sample. This test is different from the regular venous punctures that are drawn routinely for other lab work. This blood draw is utilized to collect specific information pertaining to lung and kidney function.

15 – 20 minutes should be allowed for this test. Upon request from physician, results may be called or faxed to physician’s office. Local physicians will have computer access as soon as the Laboratory releases the results into our hospital-wide and clinical computer system.

Electrocardiography (EKG)
This heart test involves the placement and connection of ten wires to ten sticky tabs placed around the patient’s arms, torso and legs. The collection of this information is important for diagnosing irregular heart rhythms.

Female patients should wear a 2-piece outfit to allow for access to the chest and abdomen area without completely disrobing.

15 – 20 minutes should be allowed for this test. Upon request from your physician, results may be faxed to physician’s office. Local physicians will have computer access as soon as the results are scanned into the computer.

Oximetry Testing for Home Oxygen qualification
Upon arrival, the patient will be required to sit at rest for 15 minutes on room air, unless the patient is noted to be having distress. The patient will then be ambulated for 6 minutes and supplement oxygen applied as needed. After test the patient will continue to be monitored for 2 minutes while at rest.

30 minutes should be allowed for this test.
A report will be generated that day, then forwarded to the ordering physician.
(Remove MDI instruction box, we only do this when pt is in ER)

Pulmonary Function Screening
This is a screening test that generally includes pre and post Bronchodilator testing of lung functions. Tests include a flow-volume loop, MVV, and SVC. Patients will be required to produce breathing patterns that are deep, rapid and prolonged with the different tests listed.

If bronchodilitation is involved as part of the testing, the patient MUST NOT utilize inhalers or nebulizer therapy 4 hours prior to testing. If this is done, rescheduling will occur.

Approximately 45 minutes should be allowed for this test. Upon request from your physician, results may be faxed to physician’s office. Color differential graphs may not be apparent when faxed. Results can be mailed if address is provided. Local physicians will have computer access as soon as the results are scanned into the computer.
