How painful are catheter procedures? The idea of someone poking a long tube through a body sounds at least mildly uncomfortable. Is there anesthesia used on the patient?
Diagnostic : Diagnostic catheter procedures are mildly painful only twice: when local anesthetic is injected at the puncture site and when, after the procedure, pressure is applied at the puncture site to prevent any bleeding. During the procedure, you should feel little or nothing. If you think about this, it makes sense: you can't feel blood moving though your vessels (other than the pulse it creates), so you shouldn't feel the catheter in your vessel either. If there is an intervention during the catheter study, like a balloon angioplasty, stent placement, or biopsy, you may feel that and it might be briefly uncomfortable. Patients undergoing catheter studies are almost always given sedation to help them remain comfortable. I've written a health guide on this site which discusses conscious sedation in detail; a link to that guide is attached to this answer. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
