In a cardiac catheterization procedure, a small, hollow tube is inserted into a blood vessel. Once inserted, a number of procedures can be performed through the catheter, including measuring the pressure within the heart’s chambers, collecting biopsies, angiogram, and angioplasty.
North Okaloosa Medical Center 's cardiac catheterization lab offers a complete range of services that you would only normally find at a larger hospital. Here, modern technology allows physicians to quickly and accurately diagnose problems so they can move on to treatment.
Our cath lab is over 1,350 square feet and includes a 10-bed recovery area with an integrated, portable monitoring system to watch over patients' heart rhythms while under our care. The lab is often the first stop for patients who experience severe cardiac symptoms, including chest pain, shortness of breath and dizziness. The catheterization process takes about an hour and same day results can be provided.
