Abstract

This is an updated and expanded planning and optimal resource guideline for diagnostic examinations of the cardiovascular system. Catheterization angiographic laboratories are described and detailed specifications given for radiologic and physiologic equipment. Case loads for maintaining safe and effective performance are recommended and complication rates discussed. An optimal location for the laboratory is defined and the status of affiliated laboratories reviewed. Professional staff qualifications, relationships and requirements are enumerated and recommendations are made for organization and administration of the services. There is a protocol for electrical safety and radiation protection and a data base for assessing case loads in hospitals within a community or region. This statement also defines optimal facility and equipment criteria for conventional chest X rays and radiologic equipment requirements for cardiovascular surgical operating rooms and intensive care units.
