The Cardio Respiratory Department is instrumental in assisting with the diagnosis and management of cardiopulmonary disorders. The department performs electrocardiograms, monitors for the investigation of cardiac irregularities, performs pulmonary function studies and also works in conjunction with Nuclear Medicine in the performance of Myocardial Perfusion Imaging (MIBI) heart studies. The following are cardiac diagnostic procedures that are performed at Woodstock Hospital.

Echocardiogram (ECHO)

An echocardiogram is an ultrasound study of the heart. It evaluates the chambers for function, the walls and chambers for size and heart valves to check the blood flow. You will be lying on your left side for the majority of the exam. Results will be relayed to your healthcare provider after being interpreted by a physician.

Electrocardiogram (ECG)

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a test that measures the electrical activity of the heart. It involves the placement of electrodes which are small adhesive patches or suction cups that are placed on your chest, arms and legs.  There are sensor pads in these patches that record the electrical activity which is then interpreted by a physician.

The Standard Exercise Stress Test (this can only be performed if you can walk on a treadmill)

The Standard Exercise Stress Test is a general screening tool used to evaluate the heart’s response to graded exercise. At predetermined intervals the exercise will increase and the patient’s ECG, blood pressure and heart rate are recorded. The results of the test may help your physician decide if you have heart disease and how severe it is.

Holter Monitor

Holter monitoring enables your physician to find out how well your heart is keeping its rhythm as you go about your day-to-day activities.  Since the monitor continuously records your heart beat over the period of time you wear it, it is suggested that you bathe prior to your first exam visit, as you won’t be able to shower or bathe while wearing the monitor.  It records on a small digital recorder for subsequent review and analysis.

Loop or Event Monitor

A loop monitor is used to record and evaluate infrequent cardiac irregularities.  It is usually worn over a period of 2 weeks with the ability to capture data automatically and/or patient-activated.  This monitor does not record continuously. The simplicity of this monitor allows the patient to remove and bathe and replace sensors.
