10 new headsets were recently purchased for our Cardiac Cath Lab at Maidstone Hospital to enhance the patient experience. The wireless headsets are worn by the team during all procedures which include Electrophysiology and RF ablation; Pacemaker implants; Cardiac resynchronisation therapy device implants; Internal Cardioverter Defibrillator implants; Loop recorder implants and Angiograms.

The Cath Lab includes a Control Room where a Cardiac Physiologist operates equipment, which is behind a lead screen. The headsets allow the Team, including operator, nurses and radiographers to communicate effectively with one another throughout a procedure.
