Cardiology and pulmonary services at Norton King’s Daughters’ Health work together as a single department. This provides patients easy access to both heart and lung services in one location. We call it Cardiopulmonary services. Our team provides a wide range of heart and pulmonary procedures, including:
All diagnostic procedures are performed by teams members who are certified and registered through CCI or ARDMS. The vascular lab at Norton King’s Daughters’ Health is nationally accredited through the ICAVL (Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories).
Cardiac and pulmonary rehab services are based on exercise, education and social support. In most cases, insurance/Medicare will cover the early phases of the rehabilitation program. Benefits of cardiopulmonary rehab include:
These patients include those who have had a heart attack, bypass surgery, valve replacement or angioplasty, heart transplant recipients, those with chronic heart failure and those with PVD (peripheral vascular disease). Programs are developed to meet each patient’s specific needs. Many patients choose to continue cardiac rehabilitation after completing their initial program. To learn more about options and costs, talk with one of the rehabilitation therapists.
Pulmonary rehabilitation often includes patients with asthma, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), emphysema, chronic bronchitis, pulmonary fibrosis or lung cancer. Programs are specifically designed for each individual patient, based upon medical condition and goals. Please let us know if we can answer any questions.
Every year, more than 137,000 people in Louisville and Southern Indiana choose Norton Heart & Vascular Institute specialists for their heart and vascular care. That’s more than any other health care provider.
