Cardiology

EKG

Diagnostics

We offer comprehensive cardiac evaluation for patients who may have chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations, feel light headed, dizziness or blacking out. Sometimes patients are referred for cardiac evaluation because they have an abnormality on a diagnostic test such as an EKG or chest x-ray. Others may have had a heart murmur detected during a physical examination. After a full examination by a cardiologists, imaging procedures may be needed for further diagnosis. At Lenoir Memorial we offer Echocardiogram, nuclear stress test, diagnostic cardiac catheterization, CT cans, and MRI of the heart. Ambulatory monitoring of heart rhythm problems is available for patients being monitored for possible arrhythmia. Therapeutic cardiac procedures including pacemakers and internal defibrillators are available for patients who have been diagnosed with conditions warranting this type of procedures such as severe bradycardia and ventricular tachycardia. Cardiac patients are encouraged to discuss the Cardiac Rehab program offered through the Minges Wellness Center with their physician. This program can be a integral part to successfully recovering from heart related health problems.

Cardiac Catheterization Staff

Improved Catheterization Services

In 2013 Lenoir Memorial moved Cardiac Catheterization services to a larger space in the operating room and upgraded Cardiac Cath equipment and services. Also, through a partnership with Vidant Health, heart stenting procedures began. Cardiac catheterizations have been done at Lenoir Memorial for a long time but patients needing heart stents had to travel to another facility to have the stent placed. The cardiac catheterization team assembled to provide this service to our patients has over 130 years of collective experience. The team, led by co-medical directors Dr. Pradeep S. Arumugham and Dr. Alan Kirollos, offer patients the best possible care. Sometimes during a heart catheterization, the physician realizes that patients need a heart stents. Now, Lenoir Memorial can provide this service as opposed to transporting patients to another facility. At Lenoir Memorial patients receiving stents are a high priority and for that reason, prior to any cardiac stent procedure stent procedure, we will contact the East Carolina Heart Institute at Vidant Medical Center and inform them that we are placing a stent. Only in a very rare occasion do patients have to be transported to the Heart Institute for additional surgery. But in the event transporting is necessary, we have procedures in place to safely and efficiently transport patients and get them the care that they need.
