Screenings and Services for Heart Conditions
Bonner General Health offers multiple screenings and services for heart conditions. Even if your cardiologist isn’t located in Sandpoint, you can still have screenings and services at Bonner General Health.
Our Diagnostic Imaging department offers echocardiography as well as myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) which is a non-invasive test that allows your physician to see if you have a heart condition without doing surgery. We tailor the stress test to each patient’s physical capabilities. The test can be administered three ways; with the patient walking on a treadmill, walking on the treadmill and using medication, or using medication only with no treadmill. For more information call 208-265-1142.
Our licensed, credentialed respiratory therapists in our Cardiopulmonary department provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to people with lung and/or heart disorders on an inpatient or outpatient basis. Some of those services include electrocardiogram (EKG), Exercise Stress Testing, and Holter Monitoring (48 Hour) and Multi-Day Monitoring and Evaluation. For more information call 208-265-1045.
Our Cardiac Rehabilitation department offers a physician-referred, R.N.-supervised program for individuals who have had bypass surgery, stents, heart valve surgery, a heart attack, stable angina, or congestive heart failure. The program is designed to speed recovery and safely return individuals to a full and productive life through physical conditioning, education and counseling. For more information call 208-265-7480.
