"Emergency Stent insertion"

About: Kettering General Hospital / Cardiology

Admitted with chest pains via the Rapid Access Chest Pain Unit I was treated in Oakley Ward of the Coronary care Unit. My condition was promptly diagnosed by angiogram and options for treatment discussed with me by the Consultant. An angioplast was arranged within hours. Medical, Nursing and Care staff worked really hard to make my stay reassuring, comfortable and enjooyable. Unfortunately a disturbed night in the shared Recovery bay due to the continual monitor bleeps of a low heart-rate patient did let things down a bit
