Your cardiologist’s office staff will arrange the scheduling of your heart catheterization at Lehigh Valley Hospital–Pocono. They will contact the cardiovascular lab and arrange to have a pre-admission representative contact you by telephone. The representative will ask you to answer some pre-procedural assessment questions, review your medical history, go over your medication history and answer any questions you may have about what to expect the day of your catheterization. The representative will tell you what day and time to come to the lab. If you have to complete additional lab tests or X-rays before the procedure, your cardiologists will explain those tests to you.
