About the Cath Lab

The caregivers (employees) in the

award-winning cath lab at Providence Alaska Medical Center (PAMC) serve a wide

range of patient populations and conditions -- from newborns to geriatrics;

from stable outpatients to critical care patients. Services include diagnostic

and interventions in cardiac, peripheral and neurovascular. There is a separate

electrophysiology (EP) team, but the cath lab staff often helps the EP team to

set up, scrub or circulate. Cath lab caregivers come from a variety of educational

backgrounds including radiology technology, nursing, cardiovascular technology

and other allied health professionals (many are Registered Cardiovascular

Invasive Specialists certified). However, the lab is not divided by these

certifications or licensures; caregivers perform similar tasks and have the

option of rotating through scrub, circulate and monitor. There is always

something new in the cath lab at PAMC that requires a breadth of knowledge and

flexibility regarding patient needs, equipment, techniques and the evolving

medical culture. The successful caregiver in the cath lab will be able to

multitask, think on their feet and adapt quickly.
