Diagnostic testing and treatment of acute and chronic heart and lung illnesses, including sleep studies and pulmonary rehabilitation services.
Respiratory patients largely suffer from illnesses such as Bronchitis, Asthma, Congestive Heart Failure, and COPD. The Respiratory Therapy Department at Harrison County Community Hospital is staffed seven days-per-week to help these patients by providing a variety of diagnostic tests and treatments including:
- Arterial Blood Gas Sampling
- Pulmonary Function Testing
- 24-Hour Holter Monitoring
- Oximetry Testing
- Home Oxygen and Nebulizer Equipment Arrangement
- Aerosolized Medications Administration
Respiratory Therapy also provides a Pulmonary Clinic with Dr. Scott Eveloff
. To schedule an appointment or receive further information regarding our Cardio-Pulmonary services, please call (660)425-0265 or email Director Mary Elsberry, RRT at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program is designed to help educate patients, decrease respiratory symptoms and complications, and improve overall physical and emotional well being for people with chronic lung diseases. Pulmonary rehab addresses several concepts and differs slightly from Cardiac Rehab by offering services such as:
- Breathing Retraining
- Gradually Increasing Exercise
- Timeline (individualized for each patient)
- Medicine Management and Education
- Emotional Support
Rehabilitation is covered by Medicare and most insurance carriers upon meeting certain criteria. A doctor’s order is required.
If you feel you may benefit from HCCH’s Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program, contact your physician or our Cardio-Pulmonary Department at (660)425-0265 for more information.
Services providing sleep tests that will accurately diagnose your exact sleep disorder and
devise treatment plans tailored to your specific needs.
Sleep Study Services at Harrison County Community Hospital are scheduled through the Cardio-Pulmonary Department by calling (660)425-0265.
Sleep disorders can be detrimental to all body systems making diagnosis and treatment vital. Though many don’t realize, there are direct links between sleep and heart disease as well as sleep and diabetes. Patients suffering from those conditions or from Narcolepsy, Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) and Periodic Limb Movement Disorder (PLMD), snoring and/or insomnia may benefit from a sleep study.
At HCCH, sleep studies are performed in the two-bed sleep lab on the lower level of the hospital and may consist of a basic sleep test (PSG) or a more in-depth testing called a CPAP titration. You may need a sleep test if you experience any of the following:
- Morning Headaches
- Excessive Snoring
- Daytime Sleepiness
- Frequent Daytime Drowsiness
You may also take this online sleep test
to help you decide whether or not a sleep study might be necessary.
