|Modular Cardiac Catheterisation Lab|
Tobago Development Minister Dr. Delmon Baker made the announcement Thursday at the post cabinet media briefing. The said Cabinet will have an open tender process to buy the equipment.
Baker said hypertension and diabetes are two of the most common diseases in Tobago, noting that the Cardiac Catheterisation Lab and MRI machine would be very useful for the treatment of patients on the island.
A Cardiac Catheterisation Lab carries out cardiac procedures such as angiograms, percutaneous coronary interventions, closure of some congenital heart defects, treatment of stenotic heart valves, and pacemaker implantations.
