Overview

In addition to covering therapeutic interventions that are commonly performed in the majority of cardiac cath labs, this book examines newer and more highly specialized interventions. The book is set up to give an overall orientation of the subject to the trainee and to the technician who is more often assisting with, rather than performing complex procedures. It is written in an easy-to-read outline format, with tables, figures and bold-faced information. The material is organized so complete information for a specific procedure is included in one chapter.

* Provides an excellent orientation for all those working in the cardiac cath lab, with an easy-to-read, outline format for quick access to information
• Focuses on specific therapeutic interventions, with an emphasis on those you're most likely to perform
• Covers set-up and access, standby equipment, step-by-step procedural strategy, post-procedural management, and expected outcomes
