Sedation and anaesthesia for cardiac catheterisation
Since the introduction of cardiac catheterisation for Paediatric Cardiology in 1947, the subspecialty has seen dramatic changes. The advancement of non-invasive imaging techniques such as echocardiography, CT and cardiac MRI has shifted the focus for paediatric cardiac catheterisations from a primarily diagnostic tool (to define anatomy, assess haemodynamics and calculate shunts) to an important treatment option for various congenital heart defects.1
