Nurses are in a responsible position to help reduce patient stress during cardiac catheterization. If you teach and care for patients before catheterization, are a member of the catheterization lab team, or care for patients during the procedure, these techniques will assist you in reducing patients' physiologic and psychologic stress during this procedure.
