This is interesting how Dr. Oz walks us through how the process works.   The volunteer from the audience is a patient who had a stent put in place and talks about imagethe bit of pain in her chest that she experienced when the balloon was put in place, she said it felt like she was having another heart attack.

In the demo they used a defibrillator to bring the patient back after closing off the artery.  I found this interesting to watch and educational as well, so if one is ever in this situation, it gives you an idea as to what is going on with the catheter being routed up through the groin area and what is taking place. 

We hear talk all the time about simulation and with this life saving technology, I can see how simulation can better prepare for the “real” thing.  BD
