    The cath lab, also known as a catheter laboratory or cardiac catheterisation laboratory, is part of a hospital's cardiac department. A cath lab is where tests and procedures including ablation, angiogram, angioplasty and implantation of pacemakers / ICDs are carried out. Usually you'll be awake for these procedures. A cath lab is staffed by a team of different specialists, usually led by a cardiologist. A cath lab shouldn't be confused with an operating theatre, where you would have surgery such as a heart bypass operation, under a general anaesthetic.

    This talk will discuss common cath lab and heart operations and explain how best to recover following these procedures.

    Cardiovascular disease  is an umbrella term for a collection of diseases that affect the heart and circulatory system and is the most common cause of premature death in the UK. Cardiovascular disease is also the most common cause of death in the UK. One of the most common is coronary heart disease, which is when fatty deposits gradually build up on the walls of your coronary arteries.
