2 Environmental catheterization of the laboratory Clothes Appropriate laboratory-specific clothes and shoes are prevention necessary Cleaning of the The laboratory must be cleaned in accordance with the room institutional requirements. g. g. a patient with an active viral illness such as HIV or hepatitis B where specific cleaning of the laboratory may be required Air vents Well-serviced and efficient ventilation is a mandatory requirement. 2 Remove hair at the access site using clipper or depilatory on the day of the procedure or the day before A 2 % chlorhexidine with alcohol is the most effective antiseptic agent but can be substituted with povidone-iodine.

Hence, with fewer particles in solution, they are designated low-osmolar contrast media (LOCM). The most recent class of agents are dimers that consist of a molecule with two benzenes (again, each with 3 iodine atoms) that do not dissociate in water (nonionic). These compounds are called iso-osmolar contrast media (IOCM) (Fig. 1). The toxicity of CM decreases as osmolality approaches that of serum. HOCM have an osmolality of 1,570 mosm/kg H2O, while IOCM have an osmolality similar to serum at 290 mosm/ kg H2O.

15 Use Biplane Fluoroscopy, Roadmap, and Overlay Features These features allow vessels of interest to be found with minimal trial and error. 16 Catheter Selection An end-hole catheter is useful for selective, relatively smallvolume injections by hand, such as into coronary arteries, aortopulmonary collaterals, and other small- or medium-sized arteries. Contrast injection into the cardiac chambers, main pulmonary trunk, or aorta should be made through a multi-sidehole catheter. Multiple side holes facilitate high contrast flow rates, high velocity of injection, and minimal catheter whip.
