Heart Station

The Carlisle Regional Medical Center Heart Station performs cardiology testing such as:

  • EKG or electrocardiography to secure a record of the heart's electrical activity.
  • Treadmill stress test to assist in differential diagnosis of chest pain during exercise.
  • Thallium stress test to evaluate heart muscle blood flow during rest and exercise.
  • Dipyridmole thallium testing to rule out arteriosclerotic heart disease.
  • EEG or electroencephalogram to record brain wave activity.

The Carlisle Regional Heart Station also provides a pacemaker clinic, which allows physicians to check the function of heart pacemakers, either in the Medical Center or over the telephone.
