If you have heart issues or a family history of heart disease, we have
good news: Cardiology is part of the services full-time in Gillette, Wyoming.
Our highly skilled, board certified cardiologists at the Campbell County
Medical Group Cardiology clinic are here at all times to care for patients and our
cardiac cath lab allows us to provide care quickly during an emergency. And, we can help
get you back to your daily routine after a heart incident with our
Cardiac Rehabilitation program.
Dr. Shah and
Dr. Stamato use these and other tools to diagnose and treat heart problems as the
first cardiologists living and working in Gillette. The cardiac care team
includes our physicians, registered nurses in the Clinic, as well as a
team of registered nurses and technicians in the

Call 911 at the first signs of a heart attack
At the first signs of heart attack, call 911. The classic sign of a heart
attack is a sharp pain in your chest radiating to your left arm; however,
there are many other warning signs, including:
- Pressure, tightness, pain, or a squeezing or aching sensation in your chest
or arms that may spread to your neck, jaw or back.
- Nausea, indigestion, heartburn or abdominal pain.
- Shortness of breath.
- Cold sweat.
If you experience these symptoms, call 911. Do not lie down to see if the symptoms pass, or drive yourself (or as a
friend to drive you) to Campbell County Memorial Hospital. Call 911.
An experienced physician can help determine what kind of testing is recommended
to diagnose and treat potential heart problems, depending on symptoms
and risk factors.
Cardiac Catherterization Lab: Cardiologists also perform procedures like cardiac catheterization in the
Cardiac Cath Lab at Campbell County Memorial Hospital. During a cardiac catheterization,
a narrow tube called a catheter is inserted into a large artery and guided
through the blood vessels into the heart. The physician can then see and
evaluate the heart’s health. The doctors utilize a “radial
approach” in the Cath Lab more than 70% of the time, when the catheter
is inserted through a vein in the patient's wrist. Services provided
at the Cath Lab include cardiac pacemakers, intracoronary defibrillators
(ICD), peripheral artery intervention, renal artery intervention and more.

Echocardiography lab: Two certified cardio echo technicians complete a variety of echocardiograms,
ultrasound images of the heart muscle and valves.
Electrophysiology lab: Electrophysiology is a subspecialty of cardiology that treats irregular
heart rhythms. Special equipment provides a 3-D map of the heart.
Heart monitoring: Cutting edge, convenient skin patches that help monitor heart rhythms
to determine if a patient has an irregular heartbeat that’s causing
Holter Monitors and External Event Monitors: A cardiac event recorder makes a record of your electrocardiogram (ECG
or EKG) when you have fast or slow heartbeats, or feel dizzy or like you
want to faint. It can also be used to see how you respond to medicines.
When a 24-hour Holter monitor is worn by a patient, the Cardiology Clinic
generate reports for the Cariologists to review and make recommendations
for the patients.
Pacemaker and Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) Clinic: The Cardiology Clinic has a patient education class for implanted devices
(pacemakers and defibrillators) that meets weekly. Cardiologists track
patient cardiac reports on a daily basis via Internet readouts, watching
for activity that indicates a problem.
Stress testing: The Clinic offers a variety of cardiac stress testing including exercise
stress tests with and without nuclear imaging, and chemical stress tests
with and without echocardiograms.
Transesophageal Echocardiogram (TEE) Test: An echocardiogram (echo) uses ultrasound to create pictures of your heart's
movement. A transesophageal echo (TEE) test is a type of echo that uses
a long, thin, tube (endoscope) to guide the ultrasound transducer down
the esophagus (“food pipe” that goes from the mouth to the stomach).
