New job in cardiac catheterisation unit!
- 0Jan 16, '13 by canned_breadHey all,
I just got a position in a cardiac catheterisation unit. I have had some experience in cardiac wards before, but not in surgery (only on surgical wards).
Can anyone tell me what I should "scrub up on" before I start my job in 3 weeks? What did you find would have been useful/important to you to know, if you have worked there before, or what do you think would be useful?
I've already got ECG and cardiac drugs down pat.
Any tips would be appreciated too!
Thanks for your help.

- 0Feb 26, '13 by Sadie47The book invasive Cardiology a manual for cath lab personnel is a great source and it is written by RN's. It comes with CEU of 32 and two booklets to turn in your answers to questions throughout the book. I too am new to a cardiac cath lab and found this very helpful. Also joing Cathlab digest for free and this is very helpful.
