Progressive Diagnostic and Interventional Heart Care
Cardiac catheterization is a diagnostic and therapeutic procedure that allows cardiologists to study the heart and surrounding blood vessels. Performed by inserting one of more thin, flexible tubes (catheters) through a peripheral blood vessel in the arm or leg, the procedure can record blood flow, calculate cardiac output, evaluate the heart's electrical activity, and more.
The Heart Center's state-of-the-art Cath Labs are equipped with advanced monitoring systems designed to support one of the most progressive diagnostic and interventional programs in Southern California.
To meet the increasing demand for catheterization procedures, the Heart Center at Glendale Memorial includes four Cath Labs staffed with specially trained nurses and technicians, who work closely with cardiologists to provide a safe and successful procedure.
