Cardiac surgery is any surgery done on the heart muscle, valves, arteries, or the aorta and other large arteries connected to the heart.
The term “open heart surgery” means that you are connected to a heart-lung.
Cardiac Intensive Care
Cardiac intensive care is a unit after people who are seriously ill with heart problems, usually after or immediately before having open heart surgery.
It is a place where life is created again after open heart surgeries or before surgery.
Cardiac catheterization is a procedure used to diagnose and treat certain cardiovascular conditions.
During cardiac catheterization, a long thin tube called a catheter is inserted in an artery or vein in your groin, neck or arm and threaded through your blood vessels to your heart.
