Explain My Procedure is a helpful and informative patient resource featuring short animations on almost all cardiac procedures we perform at Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital.

These animations describe the procedures, their intended benefits, risks and alternatives in a patient friendly language. 

These animations can be watched an unlimited number of times, with family and friends, on a desktop, laptop or mobile.  It gives people the time they need to better understand their procedure.

Every person’s circumstances are different and whilst the animations from Explain My Procedure do not give individualised advice, they provide general information and are a really helpful starting point for discussion with your clinical team at Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital.
