Although largely benign and expected, this ritual can place even more stress on an already unsettled and insecure newcomer. The first edition of this manual was spearheaded by cardiology fellows who remembered well what it was like to enter the cath lab for the first time. Now, several years later, these 'hazees' have in many cases become the 'hazers' but the additional experience and responsibility has allowed for a more comprehensive and updated manual.Our goal is to produce a thoroughly practical and easily accessible manual for physicians, physicians-in-training, nurses, cath lab x-ray techs, mid-level providers and students. Since we have been subjected to years of questions, first from our mentors and now from our students, we are acutely familiar with the most pertinent and necessary data for any student no matter the level of training. The manual remains specifically designed with an easy-to-read format that includes highlighted 'pearls,' updated American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) guidelines, numerous visuals including carefully delineated schematics of standard coronary projections, and special 'troubleshooting' notes that provide potential solutions for frequently encountered problems"--Provided by publisher.
