From traditional gastrointestinal procedures such as colonoscopies, to more advanced endoscopy treatment, the Medical West GI Lab offers a full range of screening and diagnostic procedures, all performed in new, state-of-the-art endoscopy suites. With the assistance of patient monitors and high definition technology, our physicians and staff are able to perform under the best conditions. The GI Lab at Medical West is located on the second floor of the Professional Office Building.
The GI Lab at Medical West has recently gone through a makeover--which is now complete! Renovations include private pre/post operative rooms, procedure rooms, new equipment, waiting area, nurse's station, breakroom, and more.
After the transformation, the GI Lab boasts 11 pre/post operative rooms and four procedure rooms, all with new scopes, monitors and equipment towers.
GI Lab nurse Gwen Parker said, "The new space has given us more enthusiasm as we help our clients come through our lab. We are organizing our staff to assist patients' progress through the lab easier and faster."
With all the additions to the GI Lab, Medical West is now able to accommodate an increased number of patient visits each day! The transformation of the GI Lab also helps to reduce wait times for scheduling and having procedures performed.
GI Lab Head Nurse Sheena Walker said, "We have received so many compliments from both patients and visitors about how great everything looks! Our goal is to increase patient flow, while maintaining the same dedicated and compassionate quality of care that we give to our patients, as they are our number one priority."
Sudden Cardiac Death
If you've ever heard of or known someone who suffers a "sudden death", it can be quite a disturbing story. Many times, what seems to be a relatively young and healthy person can just "drop dead".
Known as sudden cardiac death (SCD), it is a sudden, unexpected death caused when the heart stops functioning. The cause of approximately 325,000 adult deaths in the US each year, it is the largest cause of natural death and responsible for 50% of heart disease deaths in the US.
