Patient Information

Your Guide to Cardiac Devices

This guide has been prepared to assist you and your family with understanding what to expect during your procedure. A permanent pacemaker is a device that regulates your heart rate. When your rate is too slow, the pacemaker sends an impulse to correct the rate and keep it appropriate for your needs. An ICD is a device that monitors your heartbeat and gives your heart a shock if you start having bad arrhythmias. Arrhythmias are when your heart does not beat normally.

Your Guide to Cardiac Catherization
This guide has been prepared to assist you and your family with understanding what to expect during your procedure. During your catheterization, your doctor inserts a long, flexible tube called a catheter into a blood vessel in your groin, arm or wrist. The catheter is then threaded to your heart. The procedure helps show how well your heart is pumping, to inspect the arteries that feed your heart and to examine your heart valves.

Your Guide to Vascular Procedures

This guide has been prepared to assist you and your family with understanding what to expect during your procedure. Angioplasty, stenting and atherectomy are treatments for narrowed or blocked arteries and veins. An angioplasty opens a blood vessel by inflating a small balloon inside it. Stenting involves placing a tube-shaped device called a stent in the blood vessel to keep it open. Atherectomy involves using special catheters to remove the plaque from an artery.
