Heart disease remains a serious problem in our state, and Oakdale Community Hospital is committed to meeting the needs of our cardiac patients. We are accredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories (ICAEL) and are ranked in the top 10% in the state for the treatment of heart failure according to a recent study.
Our non-invasive heart services include: EKG’s; 24-hour Holter monitoring; echocardiography with cardiac Doppler and color flow imaging; and contrast echocardiograms. To gain a better understanding of the heart and vessels, we also offer stress testing, including exercise treadmill; radionuclide exercise treadmill; pharmaceutical stress-echo; and radionuclide pharmaceutical stress test. These tests can help detect blockages in the vessels, valve problems, and other irregularities that can lead to damage to the heart muscle or heart failure if left undiagnosed and untreated.
