Scheduling a Cardiac Cath

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-proce¬≠dural 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 representa¬≠tive 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.
