Total Care Clinic

The Cardiopulmonary Department is available 7 days a week providing both in patient and outpatient services.

 

Inpatient services include:

 

  • Evaluation for oxygen and other respiratory therapies
  • Aerosol treatments – delivery of bronchodilators to reduce shortness of breath
  • Bronchial hygiene therapy – mobilization of secretions
  • BiPAP and CPAP therapy
  • Ventilatory support for respiratory distress or failure
  • Patient education and disease management

 

Outpatient services include:

 

Pulmonary Function Test – complete spirometry and diffusion testing with or without bronchodilation. Useful for patients with a history of asthma, COPD, coal miners, glass factory workers, or any patient with complaints of shortness of breath or other breathing difficulties. Yearly spirometry should be performed on patients with respiratory diagnoses.

 

Long Term Holter Monitor – This small device is worn for 72 hours, which continuously records the heart rhythm. This is useful for patients with arrhythmias, tachycardia, and bradycardia. The report compiles the total number of heartbeats, fastest and slowest rates and total number of each type of arrhythmia. This small device is attached to the chest with a large "band-aid" which means, no wires. *

 

Event Monitor – This is a small device that is worn for thirty days. The Event Monitor is recording at all times, if a patient has a symptom, they simply push a record button and the monitor captures a tracing for a period BEFORE and AFTER the button is pushed. It also records any abnormal beats automatically. This is especially useful for patients who are asymptomatic. This is a better choice for patients whose symptoms are sporadic and therefore may not have any during a Holter Monitor recording.

 

* It is also waterproof, the patient can bathe or swim

 

24 Hour Blood Pressure Monitor – A special blood pressure cuff is fitted for the patient that is attached to a recorder. The cuff inflates automatically at intervals which can be programmed during setup. This is useful for managing: white-coat hypertension, resistant hypertension, efficiency of anti-hypertensive drug therapy, nocturnal hypertension, episodic hypertension, and hypotension symptoms.

 

Nocturnal Pulse Oximetry Studies – The patient takes home a Pulse Oximeter and probe to wear during the night. This is useful to record nocturnal desaturations, qualify or requalify patients for home oxygen and also a useful preliminary screening tool for sleep apnea.

 Now Offering Telestroke Program

 

 

Grafton City Hospital has teamed up with WVU Medicine’s Telestroke Program, which began on April 1, 2020.

 

 

When an blood clot deprives the brain of oxygen, timely intervention is critical. WVU Medicine’s telestroke program uses technology to connect rural hospitals with top neurologists, allowing them to quickly diagnose stroke and determine how to treat the blockage.

 

 

 

Our Clinical Laboratory offers diagnostic test results to aid healthcare providers in the diagnosis and treatment of your illness. The laboratory provides services 24/7. We use advanced analytical testing equipment incorporating new technologies. Patients can receive the same level of care without leaving Taylor County by choosing to have their lab work done at Grafton City Hospital. The laboratory staff at GCH will immediately fax results after the completion of the test to providers who are not part of the GCH physician network. Our test menu is consistent with those of much larger laboratories, which allows us to provide you with the same high quality of care.

 

Our services:

Blood Bank - transfusion services

Hematology - the study of the physiology of the blood

Chemistry - the branch of science that deals with the identification of the substances of which matter is composed

Coagulation - the process of clot formation

Serology - the scientific study or diagnostic examination of blood serum, especially with regard to the response of the immune system to pathogens or introduced substances

Urinalysis - a helpful (and noninvasive) test which involves the chemical and microscopic analysis of urine for diagnostic purposes.
