Whether we are treating your heart disease or simply monitoring your heart health, Meadows Health Cardiology offers you excellence in cardiovascular care. Our services include:
Services Available In-Office:
An event monitor is used to record your heart rhythm when you have cardiac symptoms less than once a day. We usually monitor your heart for 30 days.
We use ultrasound equipment to look for any narrowing or blocking of the carotid arteries in your neck. These critical arteries deliver blood to your brain.
An echocardiogram is an ultrasound of your heart. We get images of how your heart is beating and pumping blood. Our cardiologists are able to detect signs of heart disease such as decreased heart function and valvular conditions.
An electrocardiogram (EKG) records the electrical activity of the heart. An EKG helps our cardiologists determine if your heart is working normally.
EKGs can help monitor heart rhythm, diagnose heart attacks, examine blood flow to and from the heart and more.
A holter monitor is similar to an EKG. It records the electrical activity of your heart. Your provider may have you wear a monitor to record your heart rhythm for one to two days.
We use the most up-to-date procedures to see if the arteries to your legs have hardened or become narrow, a condition known as peripheral artery disease (PAD).
A stress test may help us detect hidden heart conditions brought on by exercise. Electrodes will be applied to record the electrical activity of your heart before, during and after exercise. Your blood pressure will also be monitored during the test. Walking/running shoes would be best to wear to this appointment.
To identify blockage or blood clots, our cardiologists use a special ultrasound that detects how well blood is flowing in your arteries or veins.
Services Available at Meadows Health:
Our cardiac team threads a catheter (a long, thin tube) to a block in an artery and inflates a tiny balloon to open the artery. Learn More
By threading a catheter (a long, thin tube) through a blood vessel to your heart our cardiac team can then perform advanced diagnostic tests to learn how well your heart is working. Learn More
We inject a small amount of radioactive dye and then take images of your heart to identify any damage or places where blood flow is slow. We take a second set of images after using exercise or medication to make your heart work harder. Learn More
A Pacemaker provides electrical impulses to correct abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmia) or other problems with your heart rate. Learn More
Instead of using a femoral (groin) artery to access your heart as angioplasty does, radial angiography threads a catheter (long, thin tube) through a radial (wrist) artery. This advanced procedure may be easier on the patient. Learn More
Often combining this procedure with angioplasty, our cardiac specialists position a permanent, small wire mesh tube (stent) to keep an artery open. Learn More
