Heart Care Services

Our Services Include:

Holter Monitoring
A Holter Monitor is a device worn by the patient that records the hearts rhythm for a 24-48 hour period. 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.

Event Monitoring
An Event Monitor can be worn by the patient for a 30 day period. The patient triggers the recorder whenever they feel an abnormal “event” such as chest pain or palpitations. Just like a holter monitor, this device is applied within 15 minutes, but only monitors when the patient triggers the device.

Cardiac Rehabilitation Phase 2 and Phase 3
A medically supervised program for patients who have had an acute cardiac event such as a heart attack or a surgical procedure involving the heart. Patients attending cardiac rehabilitation are provided a program tailored to their specific needs for strength and endurance training along with education.

Cardiac Stress Testing
This test can be performed many different ways as determined by your physician. If the patient is not physically capable of walking on a treadmill, medication can be given to simulate exercise in order to “stress” the heart. Nuclear imaging may also be used for more specific results, as determined by your doctor.

Stress Echocardiogram
Combines the stress test with ultrasound imaging of the heart in order to assess specific areas and anatomy of the heart.

Anticoagulation Therapy Management-Protime Clinic
Anticoagulation therapies are managed in a clinic setting which offers the patient immediate information and education concerning their medication.

EKG

Electrocardiography is the process of recording the electrical activity of the heart over a period of time using electrodes placed on the skin.

Electroencephalogram (EEG) Services

An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test used to evaluate the electrical activity in the brain. Brain cells communicate with each other through electrical impulses. An EEG can be used to help detect potential problems associated with this activity. An EEG tracks and records brain wave patterns

Diagnostic Sleep Lab

Any of the above diagnostic tests may be scheduled by calling 765-827-7710.

In addition to the services listed, FRHS offers a state-of-the-art Catheterization Lab in which our cardiologists may perform a minimally invasive procedure to further diagnose any blockages that may exist.
