Cath lab nurses care for patients while they are undergoing different procedures in a cath lab. They mau assist the doctor with a cardiac catherization procedure and care for the patient during and after. Nurses in the cath lab may also help with procedures like stent placements and the insertion of pacemakers and defibrillators. The responsibilities of a cath lab nurse begin before a procedure and may include educating the patient about the procedure, checking vital signs and administering intravenous medication. During a procedure, nurses may operate medical equipment, such as a ventilator, which helps a person breathe, monitor a patients blood pressure and oxygen level and assist the physician as needed.
