Cardiac "Cathlabs" are a unique environment. Multilingual language skills cans be very helpful. Unlike operating theaters our patients are usually awake. Patients may be in a life threatening situation. Some communication in their own language may very helpful. Xray equipment is used, a sterile "operating theater" type environment exists. This can make it hard or impossible to get a patient to read something. This would really benefit from audio. I want to collect about 24 lines of useful words and phrases for this area of work. Then, once I have text I will find speakers, make recordings and upload them to the net. I have already started at www.smarthearts.info . Please check to see if your language has already been done, or if you can suggest improvements.
