VISITOR RESTRICTIONS RELATED TO INFLUENZA ENFORCED AT BOZEMAN DEACONESS HOSPITAL

DECEMBER 4, 2013
Effective Wednesday, December 4, visitor restrictions at Bozeman Deaconess Hospital are in effect due to the influenza virus. Children under the age of 18 are asked not to visit the hospital, as they are most susceptible to this virus. Children are, however, allowed in physician clinics on the Highland Health Park/Bozeman Deaconess medical campus.

Influenza is highly transmittable and a major cause of acute bronchitis and pneumonia. It is transmitted through contact with infected respiratory secretions, usually by way of the hands. Strict hand washing is the most important and effective method of prevention.

The restrictions will continue to help control the spread of influenza in the hospital. Those who have symptoms of upper respiratory infection, cough or fever should not visit the hospital, and hospital employees will ask visitors with such symptoms to leave.

The hospital appreciates the public's cooperation and understanding, and will inform the public when the visitor restrictions are lifted.

PULMONARY EXERCISE TESTING

Measuring the body’s response to exercise unveils the fingerprint of an individual’s underlying health and disease. From these data, one can gain insight into a subject’s inherent athleticism, state of training, potential rehabilitation, and/or severity of heart, lung, or muscle disease. In other words, making accurate measurements and being able to interpret them are relevant to athletes, 'weekend warriors' and patients.

Using computerized cardiopulmonary exercise system that makes precise, instantaneous measurements during exercise, the physician can make breath-by-breath measurements of metabolic responses, for example, oxygen consumption, carbon dioxide production, minute ventilation, ventilatory pattern, ventilatory efficiency, anaerobic or ventilatory threshold while at the same time make measurements of cardiac response (EKG, blood pressure, etc.) identical to the stress test administered by cardiologists.

This testing looks at the whole chain of events of oxygen delivery to the muscle.
