Cardiology Clinic

Cardiology Clinic

The following treatments and services are provided in the Cardiology Clinic located on the third floor of the Comprehensive Health Center.

Anti-Coagulation
Many people refer to anticoagulants as “blood thinners”. At the MIHS Comprehensive Health Center, we provide Anti-coagulation management for patients who have a cardiac valve placed. We work with our patient on an individual basis to achieve a therapeutic level.

Cardiac Rehab Clinic
MIHS offers Phase II and Phase III Cardiac Rehab in the Cardiology Clinic.

Phase II Cardiac Rehab is for those who have experienced a recent cardiac event such as myocardial infarction, coronary stenting, balloon angioplasty, coronary valve repair or replacement, coronary artery bypass graft surgery and those diagnosed with cardiomyopathy. A referral from a physician is required.

The Phase II program typically starts as monitored low-level aerobic exercise. As the participant progresses, strength training is often added. A Cardiac Rehab session generally lasts one hour. Most insurance companies will cover the entire cost of Phase II Cardiac Rehab.

Phase III Cardiac Rehab is offered for those who would like to continue to participate in cardiac rehab after the completion of the Phase II program. The Phase III program does not require any insurance authorization for participation and may continue for as long as the participant wishes.

Device Clinic
As an Arizona Cardiac Receiving Center, the MIHS Cardiology Device Clinic provides comprehensive device management for patients with implanted Pacemakers, Internal Defibrillators (ICD) and Loop recorders. A board-certified electro physiologist provides proper device management and optimal function on a routine basis depending on the device type and patient follow-up needs. 

Event Monitoring
A cardiac event recorder is a battery-powered portable device that the patient controls to tape-record their heart’s electrical activity (EKG) when they have symptoms. There are two types of event recorders: a loop memory monitor and a symptom event monitor. 

Holter Monitoring
A Holter monitor is a battery-operated portable device that measures and records the heart’s activity (ECG) continuously for 24 to 48 hours, or longer depending on the type of monitoring used. The device is the size of a small camera. It has wires with silver dollar-sized electrodes that attach to the skin. The Holter monitor and other devices that record the patient's ECG as they go about their daily activities are called ambulatory electrocardiograms.
