Job Description for Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory Registered Nurse

Cardiac catheterization is an essential part of medical facilities treating heart issues, as it is an important way to both treat and diagnose conditions. A cardiac catheterization laboratory registered nurse is in charge of assisting the doctor through that process, which involves inserting a thin, long, and flexible tube into a groin, arm, or neck blood vessel; then, that tube is fed toward the heart. Additionally, this nurse is generally involved in pacemaker care and treatment of other cardiovascular issues in a hospital laboratory environment. While assisting in treatment, the nurse is generally charged with keeping specific records of the treatment; they also take care of the patient before, during, and after the procedure while coordinating efforts with the rest of the staff, volunteers, and hospital departments.
