State-of-the-Art Equipment, Full Service, Certified Ultrasound Technicians, and Doctor Support

Ultra Sound/Ultra Imaging

Ultrasound, also called sonography, uses sound waves and high-resolution echo-technology to create ultrasound images that allow you to see what’s going on inside the body. Ultra Sound imaging technology does for soft tissues and organ examination what X-ray and radiology does for imaging bones and the skeletal structure of the body.

Ultra Sound information is relayed in real time on a computer screen. This technology can help diagnose and treat certain conditions as well as providing accurate, non-invasive examinations in areas such as prenatal care.

Call the hospital admissions department at 719.438.5401 for assistance in scheduling a consultation with one of our ultra sound specialists.

Sleep Studies, Sleep Disorder Diagnosis, Sleep Assistance Machines, Sleep Practices and Training

Sleep Studies

KCHD partners with Rocky Mountain Sleep Resources, LLC. (headquartered in Pueblo, CO) to provide local and regional residents struggling with various sleep challenges, professional diagnostics including sleep testing, sleep equipment fitting, testing, and training.

Good sleep is an essential building block of good health and wellness.

Even mild sleep deprivation (the kind you suffer when you wake up several times each night) can create a variety of health challenges. Undiagnosed and untreated sleep disorders can raise your risk for heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and other medical conditions. In the elderly, sleep disorders increase the risk of falling, and accelerate other aging related symptoms.

Professional sleep studies accurately measure how deeply you sleep. These studies also map how your body responds to common sleep problems. Sleep study results—in the hands of your doctor—help him or her accurately identify and measure any sleep related issues. Professional sleep studies can help diagnose:

  • Sleep-related breathing disorders, such as sleep apnea
  • Night time seizure symptoms
  • A variety of neuro-muscular movement disorders
  • Causes of extreme daytime fatigue—such as narcolepsy

Call the hospital admissions department at 719.438.5401 for assistance in scheduling a consultation with one of our sleep disorder specialists.

Nutrition Consultation and Education that Leads to Health and Fitness

Nutrition Plus

Everyone has to eat. Not everyone eats well.

Comprehensive Nutrition Consultations will bring the latest nutrition science to you to help understand nutritional options, stay motivate, and thrive in accountability while pursuing your health goals.

Dietitians and nutritionists are experts in the use of food and nutrition to
promote health and manage disease. You will learn what to eat to
lead and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Certain medical challenges are greatly benefitted through proper nutrition.

Here are some reasons to visit a Nutritionist or Registered Dietician (RD):

  • Hypertension
  • Elevated cholesterol
  • Elevated triglycerides
  • Obesity and weight loss goals
  • PCOS
  • Diabetes
  • Chronic fatigue and lack of energy

Proper and sufficient nourishment is one of a person’s most important components of vital longevity. Nourishment both on the physical and the emotional level is necessary for a healthy, active life. Your RDs will look at the whole picture that combines to create your health (or explain the lack of it): what you eat, how you move, and how you work, live, and play. RDs can become a valuable health-partner to help you achieve your dietary and fitness goals.

Call the hospital admissions department at 719.438.5401 for assistance in scheduling a consultation with our nutrition specialists.
