Cardiac Treatment and Procedures

After open-heart surgery, patients recover in the Cardiac Care Unit for the first 24 to 48 hours and are then transferred to the Cardiothoracic Stepdown Unit, where their condition is continued to be monitored by our specially trained nursing staff. 

Patients being observed following angioplasty procedures or after receiving internal pacemakers or defibrillator implants are monitored in the Interventional Unit by skilled nurses experienced in caring for post-op cardiac patients.

Cardiac patients may also be transferred to the Telemetry Unit for follow up and monitored care.   

The CT Stepdown Unit, Interventional Unit and Telemetry Unit involves a highly motivated group of specially skilled nurses dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to the residents of Bucks County and the surrounding communities.
