Pocket Guide to Diagnostic Cardiac Catheterization truly would fit into a laboratory coat pocket. This guide is filled with pictures, diagrams, tables, and illustrations that describe the different types of catheters and approaches for diagnostic purposes. Although certainly not exploring the topics in depth, this book gives nurses an overview of what is happening to their patient in the cardiac catheterization laboratory. Chapters address care both before and after catheterization. This pocket guide is a good reference book for the nurse working in a cardiology setting.
