If you require diagnosis or treatment for a respiratory disease, Chicot Memorial Medical Center offers in-house respiratory services utilizing the latest medical equipment. Conditions that we help diagnose and treat include:
A referral from your physician is required for all respiratory tests and treatments, including:
- Pulmonary function testing (PFT), where a physician measures how well a patient’s lungs take in and release air and helps show whether lung abnormalities are present
- Arterial blood gas analysis (ABG), to accurately monitor patients with suspected hypoxia or elevated PCO2
- Electrocardiogram (EKG), which records the electrical activity of the patient’s heart, allowing a physician to detect any abnormalities in the patient’s heart rhythm
- Breathing treatments (nebulizer, metered dose inhaler)
- Respiratory therapy
If your doctor recommends respiratory services to help diagnose or treat your medical condition, or you would like more information on preparing for a respiratory test, contact Chicot Memorial Medical Center in Lake Village, Arkansas today at (870) 265-9205.
