Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehab

Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehab at St Nicholas Hospital

Individuals experiencing chest pain are quickly evaluated for appropriate treatment which may include thrombolytics (clot busters) to minimize damage to the heart.

Some individuals may be referred for diagnostic procedures such as stress tests, transesophageal echocardiograms, electrophysiology testing, tilt table studies, continuous blood pressure monitoring or cardiac catheterization. Such tests allow physicians to identify heart rhythm aberrations and determine valve function and the condition of heart muscle and coronary arteries.

HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital has partnerships with tertiary care facilities to provide an option for a seamless transition to advanced cardiovascular medicine, cardiac and vascular surgery, and vascular radiology care for patients who need these services. The Cardiac Rehabilitation program at St. Nicholas Hospital assists in recovery.
