Hemodynamics Suite

The Hemodynamics Laboratory is best known as Cath Lab in English. In this department percutaneous procedures (through the skin) take place .

This area has the equipment, devises and instruments to perform intravascular and intracardiac procedures through blood vessels (veins and arteries) as access routes to reach any organ or part of the body. 

As opposed to surgical intervention in Highly Specialty Medical Units, work in an Hemodynamics Suite is minimally invasive to the patient .
