Regional Cardiac Catheterization Lab
PRHC’s Cardiac Catheterization Lab provides regional service for Durham, North Hastings, Northumberland, Peterborough and the City of Kawartha Lakes.
Cardiac catheterization is a diagnostic procedure used to detect blockages and/or narrowing in the coronary arteries, which are the blood vessels that bring blood to the heart muscle.
PRHC’s regional Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (angioplasty) program was successfully launched in early 2012, and the Health Centre now offers emergency “Code STEMI” cardiac stent procedures for patients throughout the region on a 24-hour basis.
