When it comes to treating heart and lung issues, time is often of the essence.
That is why it is so critical that patients receive the diagnostic tests
they need so that our cardiologists, physicians, and specialists can administer
the care that they need.
At Fayette County Memorial Hospital, we proudly offer an array of cardiopulmonary
diagnostic procedures to our patients. Depending on the symptoms and needs
of the individual patient, our knowledgeable staff can conduct the needed
tests to zero-in on the patient's health issue.
These diagnostic tests include:
- Electroencephalogram (EEG)
- Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)
- Arterial Blood Gas (ABG)
- Pulmonary Function Test (PFT or PFS)
- Stress test (Nuclear and Non-Nuclear)
- Echocardiogram (Heart ECHO)
- Holter Monitor
- Vascular or Doppler Studies
In each case, our doctors and technicians will walk our patients through
the testing procedure requirements and what a patient must do or wear
to ensure the tests' accuracy. We do this with patient comfort in mind.
Some of these tests are brief and can be completed on-site at our hospital.
Other tests need time to capture accurate readings. In these cases, patients
will be instructed what to do at home while critical information is recorded.
Fayette County Memorial Hospital also offers Cardiac Stress Testing five
days a week. For more information about your upcoming or ongoing test,
