    Nurse must see one pulled first, Then they will be walked thur to be able to pull sheath. Two Rn at all times. PTT less the <40 . IVFluids versed/ or morphine, 4x4 dressing tray, sand bag, suture removal tray, 10cc syringe to pull back from sheath. We do alot of heart caths, and super ablation.
