As a cardiac physiologist I found this book had an incredible insight into all aspects of the cath lab. I would reccomend this book to anyone who works in the cath lab as it is packed full of useful information and tips on the majority of procedures carried out in this enviroment. I carry this book on my person at all times in the lab and have found it has always helped me out when I have needed that extra understanding of what is going on. It is also written very well and is very easily understood. I would give this a 10 out of 10. As well as a good reference book it is also a good bed time read I found also. A very well put together book. Very useful.
