Your Procedure

Although you will be with us for 3 to 4 hours, the actual cardiac cath procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes and rarely takes more than an hour. The procedure is done using a local anesthetic and a mild sedative to help keep you comfortable and relaxed.

The purpose of a cardiac cath is to assess the blood supply to your heart muscle and to determine the condition of your heart.
