Cardiopulmonary Care

The diagnosis, management, and treatment of heart and lung problems starts with accurate diagnostic testing. At Prosser Memorial Hospital, our team of respiratory therapists is dedicated to providing you the expert cardiopulmonary care you need close to home.

Providing Essential Heart & Lung Diagnostics For Disease Detection & Management

If you’ve been experiencing certain symptoms, your physician may recommend that you undergo cardiopulmonary diagnostic tests to identify or rule out issues with your heart or lungs.

The diagnostic testing, monitoring, and therapy we provide helps us:

  • Identify irregularities in your heartbeat or breathing

  • Monitor how your heart and lungs respond to stress

  • Take high-quality ultrasound images of your heart

  • Monitor your nighttime oxygen levels while you're sleeping

  • Provide essential respiratory therapy services for people with lung disease

  • Check the oxygen levels in your blood

  • Evaluate how your lungs are functioning

What exactly is cardiopulmonary care?

In medicine, “cardio” refers to the heart and “pulmonary” refers to the lungs. Your heart and lungs are two of the most important organs in your body. They work hand-in-hand to give your entire body the oxygen it needs to function, so when something is off with one system, the other is also affected. That’s why it’s so important to see your general practitioner regularly—especially if you have a history of heart or respiratory disease.

What cardiopulmonary services does Prosser Memorial Health offer?

We provide inpatient and outpatient cardiopulmonary, sleep, and neurodiagnostic services that can help identify or diagnose a wide range of health conditions. Outpatient appointments are available 24/7.

Why do I need to go to the hospital for these tests?

Your primary care physician can refer you to us for cardiopulmonary diagnostic testing that they can’t do in their office. We have the state-of-art equipment and training needed to properly administer these tests and achieve the most accurate results.

This is how we care.

Around here, caring means more than exceptional medical care at world-class facilities. Care goes beyond the doctor’s office, the hospital, or the HIPAA agreement. To us, care is personal—from the gut, and from the heart. It’s about coming together to mend spirits with personal connections every day.
