Just started my 2nd week as a new Cardiac Cath Lab orient from a Level 2 Trauma ED. I hope you're able to point me in the right direction for more educational material I can use! Seeking info regarding procedures (left vs right <3), step by step of performing procedures (so I can grasp a better handle on what to anticipate regarding when to place caths vs guide wires on sterile field). Educational info of when physicians use compliant vs non compliant balloons, which types a wires when, ex Wholeys vs glidewires, interventional guide wires etc.
