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.
