Cardiology Lab Requisition

 

Interventional Cardiology / Cardiac Catheterization
Appalachian Regional Healthcare System established a therapeutic cardiac catheterization program for the treatment of individuals suffering from blockages that can occur in the heart. Interventional cardiology services, including angioplasty and stenting, are performed at Appalachian Regional Healthcare System Cardiac Catheterization/Electrophysiology Laboratory.

Electrophysiology
Appalachian Regional Healthcare System introduced to the High Country the first electrophysiology program to provide leading edge, exceptional care for persons with cardiac arrhythmias and the need for pacemaker and defibrillator implantation and management.

Heart Failure Services
Appalachian Regional Healthcare System offers patients affected from heart failure, technology and experience without having to leave the High Country.

Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation
Appalachian Regional Healthcare System offers Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation for cardiac diagnosis. Appalachian Regional Healthcare System works with individuals as inpatients, upon release from the hospital and as outpatients to promote a healthy lifestyle and take steps to prevent a future cardiac event.

64-slice CT Technology
The fastest, most powerful computed tomography (CT) scanner on the market is available at Appalachian Regional Healthcare System. 64-slice CT Technology can synchronize with a patient's heart rhythm and capture images between beats, allowing physicians to obtain images so detailed they can see plaque on the inside of coronary arteries.

Cardiovascular Services
Cardiovascular services at Watauga Medical Center include diagnostic testing (echo, nuc, stress tests, ECG, tilt tables, cardioversions, TEE), peripheral vascular surgery, interventional cardiology and interventional radiology.

Coronary Calcium Scoring
Coronary calcium scoring (CCS) is a proven, non-invasive method that can directly identify plaque buildup in the coronary (heart) arteries. The coronary calcium scoring screen is a CT scan that only provides a small fraction of the dose of a routine chest CT.
