THE BIRTH OF CARDIAQUE CATHETERIZATION

Cardiac catheterization is an examination that the doctor prescribes to verify the work done by the heart and to measure different pressures in the heart and lungs. A short stay at the hospital is expected for this examination.

THE INVENTION OF THE PACEMAKER (CARIOSTIMULATOR)

During the era where developments in cardiac surgeries in children with congenital abnormalities, such as a hole between the two ventricles, sudden death by blockage in electrical conduction in the heart is one of the causes of catastrophic deaths.

FIRST CORONAROGRAPHY

The pressure inside the catheter generated by the injector gave it a new orientation and injected the dye directly into the right coronary. Both doctors were convinced that death was imminent. They expected to see this 47-year-old patient die from ventricular fibrillation.
