Transitional Cardiology

Transitional cardiology is a brand new field that bridges the gap between hospital based care and skilled nursing facilities as well cardiac care at patient’s own home.  Dr. Junaid Ahmed and staff at Cardiac Vision is the first cardiac practice in the nation to offer these services.

Cardiac Vision provides onsite cardiology in the skilled nursing facility and 24/7 coverage. Aside from having an onsite cardiology provider at each facility, Cardiac Vision also provides:
– Education and training for the nursing staff especially if there are hospital protocals that need to be implemented. Also, training on managing transplant/LVAD or end stage heart failure patients
– Nursing staff will be cardiac certified to manage cardiac patients at Skilled or Assisted Living Facilities
– EKG’s onsite and training to the staff
– Real time telemetry
– Real time event monitors
– Real time AICD/Pacemaker checks
– Echocardiography onsite

Cardiac Vision has partnered up with most hospital cardiology groups in each state. Through our partnerships we are able to transition patients from the hospital to their own outpatient cardiologists. This is essential for all patients with complex cardiac needs.
