Our Cardiology Department offers a variety of diagnostic cardiology procedures to determine underlying heart diseases and/or abnormalities and problems with the heart. These procedures help your doctor determine the course of treatment to help you maintain a healthy and productive life.
A Holter Monitor is a device worn by the patient that records the heart rhythm for a 24-48 hour period. The application of a Holter monitor takes less than 15 minutes. Patients resume normal activity while wearing this recording device allowing a physician to observe the heart’s rhythm over a longer period of time.
An Event Monitor can be worn by the patient for up to 30 days. The patient triggers the recorder whenever they feel an abnormal “event” such as chest pain or palpitations. This monitor takes about 20 minutes for the application process.

Patients attending cardiac rehabilitation are provided with a program tailored to their specific needs for strength and endurance training along with education.
