CARDIAC / PULMONARY REHAB

Divine Savior Healthcare offers Phase II Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehab. This is a monitored program that brings individualized education and physical conditioning to each patient with the goal of improved health and quality of life. Early participation in outpatient cardiac/pulmonary rehab has demonstrated a reduction in hospital readmissions, improved function and exercise capacity, improved quality of life, improved mood, and improvement in risk factors. 

Divine Savior Healthcare’s Cardiac/Pulmonary rehab programs consist an interdisciplinary team involving the patient’s physician, rehab nurses, and respiratory therapists. The program is developed with the patient, physician and clinician input to determine individualized goals. Our focus is helping restore an individual with heart or lung disease to an optimal level of well-being.

 


  

CARDIOPULMONARY SERVICES

This department provides care and diagnostics in two major areas: Cardiology and Pulmonology. Our staff of physicians, therapists, medical assistants and nurses perform Pulmonary Function, Exercise and Nuclear Stress testing and Bronchoscopic procedures. Visiting Pulmonologists and Cardiologists provide consultation and care to patients with lung and/or heart problems.

 


 

NUCLEAR MEDICINE CARDIOLOGY

Nuclear medicine cardiology procedures are available for evaluating blood flow through the cardiac muscle. This technology allows the cardiologist to evaluate the patient’s status even if they are physically unable to perform a treadmill test.

 


 

ECHOCARDIOGRAMS

Echocardiograms (Echos) are a graphic outline of the heart’s movement, used to evaluate the pumping action of the heart. During this test, sound waves provide pictures of different areas in the heart.

 


 

RESPIRATORY CARE

Respiratory Care personnel provide service to the acute, critical and emergency departments on a 24-hour, seven days a week basis.

 


 

SLEEP DISORDERS LABORATORY

Polysomnography testing is an overnight test to evaluate a number of sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, narcolepsy and chronic insomnia.  This includes monitoring of the patient's airflow though the nose and mouth, electrocardiography activity, blood oxygen level, brain wave pattern, eye movement and the movement of respiratory muscle and limbs.
