Medications,anemia: There are many things that can cause this.Low blood count or anemia and low blood sugar would be two to consider.Several drugs used to treat heart disease and hypertension also may be a cause..Ace inhibitors and ace receptor blockers lower blood pressure and beta blockers which lower blood pressure and heart rate may cause a faint feeling if their dose is too high.

Depends on results.: The answer depends on the results of the angiogram, the site of catheter insertion (either femoral or radial artery) and the type of training .Many centers, such as mine, are inserting the catheter into the radial artery in the wrist which does not require any post angiogram attention. A patient whose angiogram was negative and had this method used, could return to all activities the next day.

Afib: Afib is the most common heart rhythm disturbance that we treat as cardiologists and can occur in a number of clinical settings and in association with other diseases both cardiac and non-cardiac. Non-valvular atrial fibrillation refers to atrial fibrillation that does not occur in the setting of mitral valve disease such as mitral stenosis or mitral regurgitation.
