At Englewood Hospital, cardiac patients receive a definitive assessment of their condition and access to state-of-the-art treatment.
Diagnostic modalities include dual-isotope SPECT exercise testing, pharmacologic stress-testing for those unable to exercise, non-invasive detection of coronary artery calcification by electro-beam computerized tomography, and the NMR LipoProfile, a new test to detect heart disease. A full spectrum of echocardiography laboratory includes stress echo, and transesophagal echo (TEG), computerized electrocardiography and ambulatory monitoring with instant access to prior studies for comparison.
The Cardiology Department commitment to innovative emergency care is demonstrated by international participation in landmark clinical trials including TIMI, GUSTO, ASSENT and Myocardial Infarct Registry. Post-infarct, bypass,s or angioplasty patients can look forward to comprehensive cardiac rehabilitation by a multi-disciplined team of nurses and therapists.
