Cardiac Cath & Interventional Lab
Cardiac Cath & Interventional Lab offers patients new treatment options, including diagnostic cardiac catheterization, permanent pacemaker and implantable defibrillator implantation and interventional radiology procedures. Other treatments and procedures include:
- Diagnostic cardiac catheterization
- Permanent pacemaker and implantable defibrillator implantation
- Interventional radiology procedures
- Peripheral vascular angiography and interventions
In addition, the department has a full complement of support equipment including an intravascular pressure recording system, intra-aortic balloon pump and digital image storage and review stations.
The imaging technology provides optimal digital X-ray imaging for cardiologists, radiologists and vascular surgeons that work in the suite. The optimal imaging capability of the new department is accomplished through a "no compromise" design that gives each clinician their preferred size of imaging field by having two different image systems that can be selected by the physician.
The Cardiac Cath & Interventional Lab is located on the first floor of Emanuel Medical Center in renovated space that was previously the hospital's ICU and support spaces. The suite was designed around the state-of-the-art procedure room and incorporates a number of patient, physician and staff support areas.
