This chapter covers the different roles for the cardiologist, the nurse, the clinical physiologist, and the radiographer within the heart team. It describes the individuals’ responsibilities and functions from before the procedure starts to post-procedural care and patient discharge. This includes key aspects of periprocedural care such as World Health Organization checklists, sedation, patient monitoring with electrocardiograms and arterial pressure monitors, in addition to trigger points for escalation. The chapter also describes methods of training, annual requirements for procedural numbers, audit, logbooks, and record-keeping and explains some aspects of certification and recertification.
