Doctors Hospital adding new cardiac cath lab

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Doctors Hospital is celebrating a new addition.

A state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization lab will be up and running by mid-April. Hospital officials said it will help doctors see the inside of the body more clearly and expand the number of procedures they offer.

Doctors also said, with prior notice from emergency medical technicians, they will be able to open an artery of a patient arriving in the emergency room with a heart attack in about 20 minutes.
