"Cardiac Catheterisation"

About: Sheffield PCT

(as the patient),

Amazing technology and superb professionalism.

I'd read on the net what to expect clinically but the extent of the hi-tech equipment was a real surprise. I was talked through the whole process by the consultant and his team and any queries I raised were explained both before and during the procedure, including the little noises I would hear, what I'd feel, what was happening and why.

All i can suggest to anyone going through this or any other procedure is don't be afraid to ask any of the staff about anything that's on your mind. It'll be explained and its much better to be informed than to worry unnecessarily.
