This notion holds true, when it comes to advances in Interventional Cardiology. When was it the last time that anyone heard that a Cardiologist can perform a Cardiac Catheterization procedure through a patient’s wrist rather than the groin area?
Today, only 5% of Cardiologists in the U.S. can perform Cardiac Catheterization procedure (Cath) through the radial artery in the wrist. This procedure is called Transradial Catheterization Procedure.
So why is a Cardiac Catheterization procedure done?
Cardiac Catheterization is a non-surgical procedure which is done to diagnose Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). Cardiologists do this procedure to evaluate the blood flow to the heart and heart’s pumping ability. In this procedure a thin tube called catheter is inserted in the artery and guided to the heart. A special dye is injected through the catheter. The x-ray then shows if any of the coronary arteries are blocked. If the arteries are blocked then the Cardiologist may do an angioplasty to open up the blocked arteries by the use of stents.
Normally, Cardiologists will do the Cardiac Catheterization procedure by inserting the catheter in the femoral artery in the groin area. But now Cardiologists are beginning to do the Tansradial Catheterization procedure by inserting the catheter in the radial artery of the wrist of the patient.
Benefits of Transradial Cath versus Femoral Cath procedure:
Who is a candidate for Transradial Catheterization Procedure?
Most heart patients can have Transradial Catheterization procedure if they pass the Allen Test. In an Allen Test a Cardiologist compresses the ulnar artery for a few minutes and then compares the color of the two hands. Next, the Cardiologist then compresses the radial artery of the patient for a few minutes and compares the two hands again. If the Cardiologist sees that the blood circulates well through the ulnar and radial arteries, the patient is considered clear for the Transradial Cath procedure.
What to expect during a Transradial Cath Procedure:
Dr. Khalid Shafiq at Paris Cardiology Center is now offering Transradial Catheterization procedure at the Cath Lab at Paris Regional Medical Center.
Transradial Catheterization procedure is the evolving trend for most outpatient procedures including diagnostic Cardiac Catheterization procedures and Cardiac Intervention procedures.

…Paris Regional, Women Voice Opinions ….Top Rated Women’s Care…
Paris, TX – Women have unique health care needs, and Paris Regional Medical Center (PRMC) Women and Children’s Center stands ready to help. From birth through adulthood, women turn to the physicians and staff at PRMC to diagnose and treat their health conditions. As women and their families celebrate the birth of a new baby, doctors and nurses focus on what is best for mom and her baby and deliver high-quality medical care. “HCAPS, a national patient survey that is mailed to PRMC patients, rates our physicians and staff in the 99thpercentile at the Women and Children’s Center when communicating with our patients about treatment, pain management, medications and more. We are proud of how we treat our patients, and this is reflected in the patient surveys,” said Ellen Abney, RN, Director Women and Children Services. “There are some nurses who have worked here for over twenty years, and are very dedicated to patient care.”
More mothers are glad to welcome their babies through a family-centered approach to childbirth. Having a baby is a joyful event that many moms understandably want to share with others, and they experience a family-centered approach at PRMC‘s labor and delivery. PRMC offers an extensive array of services that address the full range of medical concerns and conditions facing women today.
Dr. Tuesday Chadwick, OB/GYN said that she is fortunate to have her OB/GYN practice in Paris and at Paris Regional Medical Center, and has never had a patient disappointed in their care at PRMC. “The hospital is continually getting face lifts and upgrades which make it very nice when taking of care patients.” Chadwick believes her patients, at any age, and admitted to the Women and Children’s unit feel comfortable and see that the staff is very concerned about them. “Delivering a baby is when the relationship begins, and it continues to grow as patients have good experiences.” Dr Chadwick said a senior physician told her this in her residency, and she truly believes that’s the way patients feel.
Women continue to focus on health care while raising their families and at every stage of life. They are confident when they turn to their physicians at PRMC for treatment of breast disease, gallbladder, urologic, gastrointestinal and other disorders. Prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care for conditions that affect women of all ages are what you are looking for in health care. If women are admitted to PRMC for diagnostic tests or surgery, they may find they are in the Women and Children’s Center for the first time, or, they may once again receive the same quality care from nurses and staff who were there when they delivered their first child in the center.

This is the first article in a series that will address nutritional deficiencies caused by commonly prescribed medications. This week we will discuss antibiotics and the nutrients they deplete. It is well known that antibiotics are crucial in fighting infections and supporting health during illness. However, they can also deplete vital nutrients. Short term use generally results in a minimal depletion of nutrients but long term use of antibiotics should be augmented with certain supplements depending on the class of antibiotics being utilized.
Antibiotic Examples Nutrient Depletion Potential Depletion
A good probiotic supplement should be taken with any antibiotic regimen. A probiotic consists of ‘good’ gut microflora such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria. While antibiotics destroy the ‘bad’ bacteria of infection, they also destroy the good. Destruction of the ‘good’ bacteria (microflora) can inhibit the digestion and absorption of nutrients and can weaken the immune system. As illustrated in the chart above, it would be wise to supplement your diet with a good multivitamin during the time you are taking the antibiotic.

Lange, Certified Natural Health Professional, are professionally trained to identify nutritional deficiencies and can recommend supplements to meet your nutritional needs and goals.
