There is a lot of interest in how other hospitals organize and equip their cardiac cath labs and electrophysiology (EP) labs, but it is rare for many staff and physicians to be able to visit other hospitals. This page is a collection of of DAIC's virtual video tours, lab walkthroughs and 360 degree photos from several hospitals showing their cardiac cath and EP labs. Two videos also take tours of transradial access recovery lounges, including one of the first in the U.S., and one of the most recently built.
Special thanks to cardiology departments at Henry Ford Hospital, University of Colorado, Tufts Medical Center, Baylor Heart Hospital Dallas, Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital, Atlantic Health’s Morristown Medical Center, and Banner University of Arizona Medical Center for hosting DAIC visits to their sites, or helping facilitate these remote tours during the COVID pandemic.
