About:

The Pocket Guide to Diagnostic Cardiac Catheterization provides general cardiology fellows, nurses, and technicians entering the cardiac catheterization laboratory a practical guide addressing key aspects of left and right heart catheterization, selective coronary angiography, and the utilization of other invasive cardiology procedures for diagnostic purposes.

Written by a team of physicians from Emory University Hospital’s Cardiac Catheterization Laboratories, practical pearls of wisdom about the technical aspects of cardiac catheterization and other invasive cardiology procedures are presented with step-by-step instructions and easy-to-follow illustrations in this quick reference of essential material.

Also included is a chapter with video clips that highlight the role and technical versatility of the multipurpose catheter in cardiac catheterization—a technique developed, taught, and learned over many generations in the cardiac catheterization laboratories at Emory University.
