Cardiology Services

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.

Calcium Scoring

Campbell County, Wyoming residents now have access to a new screening test for Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) at Campbell County Health.

It’s called Calcium Scoring, and it’s a quick and painless test that can assess your risk of heart disease. The test uses a CT scan to measure the amount and location of calcification in the arteries of your heart. Calcification happens when there are significant deposits of fat, called plaque, in the arteries. The more plaque, the higher the risk for heart disease. Learn more

Cardiac Catheterization 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.

Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardiac Rehabilitation is a monitored exercise and education program for people who have experienced a heart attack or had heart surgery, helping them recover faster and return to full and productive lives. Cardiac Rehabilitation classes are held with others who share similar challenges, though each patient’s treatment plan is based on their specific risk factors and special needs. Read more

Cardiopulmonary Services

Cardiopulmonary Services (CPS) provides comprehensive care and testing for patients suffering from breathing disorders caused by heart or lung disease. Learn 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 dizziness.

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 h

eartbeats, 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 Cardiologists 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).

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.
