Understanding this therapeutic method can help you decide if it’s right for you.

What is Cardiac Catheterization?

Cardiac catheterization is a test and treatment that helps look for various common heart issues. A physician carefully needles a thin and hollow tube through your body and into a blood vessel. Here, they carefully move it towards your heart to learn more about your heart muscle, heart valves, and blood vessels. Sometimes, a small sample is taken. 

Note that you will typically be awake during this procedure, which means you can actually watch the doctor’s progress as they near your heart. They’ll give you a numbing or relaxing agent that will minimize any pain or discomfort you might feel. They will also talk to you to keep you calm and can help you better understand your heart health in more depth.
