gadgets from world leaders like hewlett-packard, marks, schiller, e-merck and beckmann, the reports generated from the department are verified by the respective specialist consultants.
Electro Cadiography (ECG)
Treadmill Test (TMT) / Stress Test
A catheterization laboratory or cath lab is an examination room in a hospital or with diagnostic imaging equipment used to visualise the arteries of the heart and the chambers of the heart and treat any stenosis or abnormality found.
Our 'Cath Lab' will consist of:
A floor or ceiling mounted Image intensifier
Set of viewing monitors
Realtime ECG/Blood pressure/Oxygen Saturation measurements with software to record and measure these when needed
Injector Pump used for imaging the Left Ventricle or Aorta
X-ray software for the recording and playback of the Flouroscopy runs acquired during the procedure
Stents (drug eluting and bare metal)
General nursing supplies
"Cardiac catheterization" is a general term for a group of procedures that are performed using this method, such as coronary angiography, as well as left ventricle angiography. Once the catheter is in place, it can be used to perform a number of procedures including angioplasty, PCI (percutaneous coronary intervention) angiography, balloon septostomy, and an Electrophysiology study or Catheter ablation.
Coronary Angiography or Coronary catheterization
Coronary Angioplasty or Percutaneous coronary intervention / PCI
Closure of some congenital heart defect
Treatment of stenotic heart valves
Electrophysiological studies such as AV node ablation
Rotablation of heavily Calcified vessles
Left and right Sided pressure studies
Any combination of the following views are used in visualising the Coronary Articles :
RAO (Right Anterior Oblique)
LAO (Left Anterior Oblique)
LAO CAUDAL (or 'spider' view)
As a general rule, cranial views are best used to demonstrate the Left Anterior Descending Artey or 'LAD', and caudal views are best used to demonstrate the Circumflex Artery.
