Diploma program in perfusion technician coursehas been conceptualized to teach the candidate the basic role of perfusion technician within health care setting. Perfusion is the science of providing extracorporeal circulation in order to artificially support and temporarily replace a patient’s respiratory and circulatory systems. PerfusionTechnicians are members of the cardiac surgical team, and provide life-saving support to patients requiring extra corporeal circulation, including but not limited to, major cardiothoracic, vascular and transplant surgeries, as well as support for critically-ill patients.
A perfusion technician forms an integral part of the team that carries our cardiac and other relevant surgeries. Perfusion Technicians prepare and operate heart-lung machines and other sophisticated equipment as directed by healthcare physicians. They measure blood pressure and other parameters to identify appropriate mechanical, pharmacological and thermal manipulation to maintain tissue viability.
