Description:

This learning program is designed to give you a fundamental understanding of cardiac catheterization. The program begins with a brief overview of heart anatomy and coronary circulation, followed by a lecture-based series exploring different topics in cardiac catheterization. The lecture-based content is expanded further through an interactive virtual visit of a cardiac catheterization lab, where users will tour the facility, meet the members of the lab team, and observe them in action as they perform a cardiac catheterization procedure.

Upon completion of this learning program, you will be able to:

  • Describe the anatomy of the heart.
  • Outline the flow of blood in the chambers and great vessels of the heart.
  • Outline the flow of blood in the coronary arteries and veins.
  • State the function of the coronary circulation.
  • Define cardiac catheterization.
  • List the diagnostic and interventional indications for cardiac catheterization.
  • Recognize contraindications to cardiac catheterization.
  • Identify the members of the cardiac catheterization lab team.
  • Recognize the different sections of the cardiac catheterization lab and describe the use of each section during the cardiac catheterization procedure.
  • Describe the preparation of patients before the catheterization procedure.
  • Outline the procedure of cardiac catheterization and associate the role of each member of the cardiac catheterization lab team with the main steps of the procedure.
  • Describe the three classes of X-ray contrast agents and their role in cardiac catheterization.
  • Outline the postcatheterization protocol that health care professionals follow for the care of patients.
  • Recognize the risks and complications that may be associated with cardiac catheterization.
