6 New Helps for
With over twenty years of caring for our hearts, RBMC’s Cardiac Diagnostic and Treatment Center continues to add advanced new diagnostic and treatment technologies and procedures to its already comprehensive roster, including healthy heart education, non- invasive outpatient testing, echocardiograms, holter monitor studies and nuclear stress tests, as well as cardiac catheterization, intravascular ultrasound, and life-saving emergency and elective angioplasty services.
“These new technologies benefit our patients by providing more accurate, highly detailed diagnosis and state-of-the-art interventional procedures,” says Director of Cardiac Services Romeo Bunag, R.N., M.S.N., C.C.R.N. “These new systems also enable clinicians to complete procedures more quickly, more comfortably, and with better outcomes for our patients.”
One Recently, the Center added transesophageal echo-cardiogram, better known as TEE, a test that examines the structures of the heart using a special transducer attached to a gastroscope, which passes through the esophagus into the stomach. Images are produced on a video screen, giving more information and clearer visuals than previously available through more conventional diagnostic tools.
Two A new vascular X-ray system with a multi-axis design assists both diagnostic and interventional procedures, provides unprecedented anatomical views of the heart, and is more comfortable for patients undergoing procedures. This technology interfaces seamlessly with RBMC’s information systems to speed communication among a patient’s health care team.
Three New IVUS technology helps to determine the nature of blocked blood vessels. This coronary intravascular ultrasound allows interventional cardiologists to see images inside the heart and coronary arteries to assist with diagnosis; it provides a direct view of the arterial wall from the inside. IVUS technology provides physicians with a better understanding of blocked vessels, allowing for proper selection and placement of stents and other devices to restore proper blood flow.
Four Transradial angioplasty, a new approach to angioplasty, uses the radial artery near the wrist as the point of entry. A thin catheter and wire snakes through the body’s circulatory highway to the heart. A balloon is expanded and a stent placed, which opens a blocked artery without surgery. Conventional angioplasty is performed through the femoral artery in the leg/groin region. This new procedure increases patient comfort, provides a faster stop to post-procedure bleeding, and significantly lowers bleeding complications.
Five A new heart health initiative for women is helping women gain increased awareness of cardiovascular disease (CVD). The goal is to help women in our community lead healthier lives, learn how their doctors can detect and treat CVD, and live free from pain and disability caused by heart disease.
Six RBMC is also collaborating with the American College of Cardiology (ACC) on a program to improve cardiovascular services for acute heart attack patients requiring emergency angioplasty by launching a national quality improvement initiative, D2B: An Alliance for Quality, a Guidelines Applied in Practice Program. It seeks to lower door-toballoon (“D2B”) time to 90 minutes or less. According to ACC, “research demonstrates that decreasing door-to-balloon time to 90 minutes or less is directly associated with reduced mortality and improved patient outcomes.”
These many improvements underscore RBMC’s commitment to quality care delivered by highly specialized physicians, nurses and staff.
