OR to Cath Lab

Specialties Operating Room


Specializes in Perioperative / RN Circulator.

I asked this a few days ago in CCU, Coronary, Cardiac but no replies so far.

How difficult would it be for an OR circulator (2 years experience) to transfer to Cath Lab?  How much orientation would they need to be able to work as a Cath lab nurse? 

I’ve only visited the Cath lab at my hospital  once, but the set up appears identical to our endovascular surgical suite and we even used the Cath lab to do endovascular procedures while that OR was being remodeled.
