B.Sc Cardio Pulmonary Perfusion Care Technology (4 Years)
B.Sc Cardio Pulmonary Perfusion Care Technology or Bachelor of Science Cardio Pulmonary Perfusion Care Technology is a 3-year undergraduate course in Bioscience. Perfusion, as the science of movement of fluids in the body, facilitates those functions necessary for the support, treatment, measurement, or supplementation of the cardiopulmonary and circulatory systems.
The course essentially involves an advanced study of the heart’s physiology, pathology, and associated equipment used to support, or assume the function of the heart or lungs during medical procedures.
Perfusion technologists prepares and operate the heart-lung machine, and other sophisticated equipment as directed by healthcare physicians. Such perfusionists utilize technology such as heart/ lung machines, ventricular assistance devices, artificial hearts, as well as pharmacological interventions to maintain the patient’s cardiac functions during the period of circulatory support.
