Cardiac Catheterization & Interventional Laboratory
The Catheterization Laboratory (Cath Lab) is a national referral center manned by pioneers and leaders in Interventional cardiology, neurology and radiology recognized for their expertise, both locally and in the ASEAN region. The physicians are ably assisted by a team of specialized and dedicated cardiovascular nurses and radiological technologists. The procedures are “minimally invasive” because the miniaturized instruments called catheters are inserted percutaneously (through the skin) via access the size of a pen point. These procedures are performed in the Cath Lab, a highly specialized facility that uses sophisticated x-ray imaging installed with a hemodynamic and electrophysiological recording system to deliver a totally integrated Catheterization Laboratory.
