Cardiopulmonary/Respiratory Services

The Department of Cardiopulmonary Services is a multi-disciplinary department offering a wide range of services for both outpatients and inpatients and a full range of age groups, including newborn, pediatric, and geriatric.

The services offered by the department include:
  • Respiratory care
  • Pulmonary function testing
  • 24-hour EKG monitoring
  • Echocardiography
  • Exercise/pharmacological stress testing
  • Cardiac rehabilitation
A new service has recently been added with the addition of a 2-bed sleep disorder clinic, with sleep studies being scheduled 4 nights a week, Sunday through Wednesday night.

Examples of typical clinical entities which are diagnostically assessed/treated in our departmental practice would include chest pain, murmur, valvular disease, status/post by-pass graft surgery/heart attack, coronary artery disease, asthma, COPD, pneumonia, emphysema, respiratory failure, congestive heart failure, and syncope.

Our staff is highly dedicated, professionally credentialed with much experience in dealing with the departmentally-defined scope of practice.
