ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the cardiac surgery/invasive cardiology hybrid operating room (OR) opened on April 4, 2005 at Vanderbilt University Medical Center's (VUMC) Department of Cardiac Surgery in Nashville, Tennessee. According to Doctor John Byrne of VUMC, the innovative OR was basically a combination of 20-year old technology with 30-year old technology. The cardiology OR is a hybrid concept that combines radiology, diagnostic imaging, and catheterization laboratory to the mix.
