Wait times represent the average estimated length of time from registration to being assigned a "first provider" (a doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Times displayed for Atlantic Health Systems are:

  • Reported as an average of wait times for the previous 2 hours of patients that have presented to the emergency department and have been seen by a provider
  • Refreshed at least every 15 minutes

Many circumstances can affect wait times - for example, patients arriving by ambulance or with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Patients with severe conditions will be seen before those with less-serious problems or ailments. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.

Arterial Studies

Arteries, which carry blood away from the heart, can become thick and less elastic over time, diminishing blood flow to the rest of the body. Several diagnostic tests are used by Atlantic Health System Heart Care to evaluate the arteries:

  • Arterial duplex imaging – uses two types of ultrasound, standard ultrasound and Doppler ultrasound, to produce two-dimensional images of the arteries and view and measure blood flow
  • Arterial pulse volume recording with segmental blood pressures (arterial PVR or Doppler) – measures blood volume changes using cuffs placed at multiple locations along the leg
  • Skin perfusion – evaluates potential for healing by taking a blood pressure reading of very small arteries, called capillaries, in the leg or the foot
  • Vasodilation – measures blood pressure at rest and after mild exercise using blood pressure cuffs placed on the legs

Heart care services may vary by location. Please confirm when booking an appointment.
