New heart care for patients in Blair and Bedford counties


Conemaugh Nason Medical Center is proud to provide heart and vascular care in its cardiac catheterization lab. A team of board-certified cardiologists uses advanced technology and techniques to diagnose and treat each patient. Recovery time for a cardiac catheterization can be quick.* Cardiac catheterization is usually very safe. A small number of patients have minor problems.**

Cardiac catheterization is a procedure used to diagnose and treat heart and blood vessel problems. A tiny tube called a catheter is placed into a blood vessel so that imaging dyes and small equipment can be passed through.

Catheterization enables healthcare providers to:

  • Examine the heart and blood vessels
  • Look for blockages in arteries
  • Check heart valve function
  • Measure blood flow
  • Place stents in arteries when they are narrow or blocked.

In a medical emergency, catheterization procedures can help quickly diagnose heart problems and provide treatments. Vascular studies of other areas, such as a patient’s legs, can also be done in the catheterization lab.
