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.
