This is a view inside one of the 11 cath labs at Baylor, Scott, White Heart and Vascular Hospital in Dallas, Texas. This room is used as a combo cardiac cath lab and electrophysiology (EP) room. It is equipped with a bi-plane Philips Allura Clarity angiography system. There is a cath lab control room behind the widow in the back of the room and the EP control area is located to the right inside the lab. There is an anesthesia machine and two boom mounted surgical lights in the room.There are no storage cabinets in this room, so commonly used catheters are mounted along the back wall by the EP workstation and go along that wall into the cath lab control room. The table has a lead skirt mounted to reduce operators exposure to scatter X-ray radiation during procedures.
