The Cardiopulmonary Department at WRMC provides service to inpatients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As our department name implies, we care for patients with heart and lung problems. The skilled and caring staff in our Cardiopulmonary Department provides patients with the following services:
Pulmonary Function Test is a series of tests that measure lung function. The tests provide information about the amount of air that a person’s lungs can hold, and how effectively the lungs work. The test can be used to diagnose respiratory conditions including asthma.
- Stress Test is a noninvasive procedure performed on a treadmill to help diagnose heart disease. More extensive studies are combined with radioisotopes.
- Electrocardiogram (EKG) records, on graph paper, the electrical impulses traveling through the heart. The purpose is to evaluate the heart’s function, to determine the presence of abnormal electrical impulses and to detect heart damage.
- Holter Monitoring is a type of electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) used to monitor the ECG tracing continuously for a period of 24 hours or longer.
