Purpose:

The primary aim of this study is to test the hypothesis that use of VR combined with standard procedural education will result in less pre-procedural anxiety than standard procedural education alone among patients undergoing first-time cardiac catheterization. The VR technology being evaluated in this study will allow patients to experience a 3-D simulation of certain aspects of their upcoming procedure prior to the actual procedure date.
