Central Florida Regional Hospital’s Cardiopulmonary Services department performs diagnostic tests and treatment of respiratory and cardiac conditions as well as neurodiagnostic services, including:


A non-invasive diagnostic test of the function of the heart and its structure that is helpful in establishing a specific diagnosis and estimating the severity of various cardiac diseases.


An EKG is a safe and painless test that records electrical impulses normally produced by the heart. Your doctor may recommend an EKG for various reasons, including chest pain, shortness of breath, dizziness and irregular heartbeat.
