The Cardiac Catheterization Lab at King’s Daughters’ Health provides specialized diagnostic testing and interventional treatments involving heart function and arterial blockage.
NEW SERVICES - Several new procedures will now be available in Madison. When the new hospital opened, we upgraded our Cardiac Catheterization technology to help us provide these services locally. For example, we will now be able to place stents and provide angioplasty at KDH. That is a huge win for patients in our community. To learn more, contact the KDH Cardiac Cath Lab at (812) 801-0583.
Heart catheterization provides the Cardiologist a detailed look inside the arteries around the heart, identifying any potential blockages. The Lab offers physicians a powerful tool in the diagnosis of heart disease.
Heart catheterization also allows physicians to measure heart chamber pressures, cardiac output, convert abnormal heart beats, and place temporary pacemakers. Trained staff can also stabilize patients suffering emergency cardiogenic shock.
Each year, the Cardiac Catheterization Lab at King’s Daughters’ treats about 300 patients. Full-time staff members include Registered Nurses and a Radiologic Technologist, all with a critical care background. All staff members are certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support. Two members are certified as Registered Cardiovascular Invasive Specialists (RCIS).
Specific questions should be directed to your doctor, or to the Cardiology office at King’s Daughters’ Health at 812-801-0196.
