To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. All PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.
A continuation of PERF 7200, this course will focus on the safe application, maintenance and weaning of Cardiopulmonary Bypass (CPB). The physiological principles of Extracorporeal circulation and its effects on the body will be a major focus of this course. A thorough understanding of metabolism, anticoagulation and the systemic effects of CPB are essential to the practicing Clinical Perfusionist.
This is an online course requiring computer and internet access. This course is reserved for students who have been accepted into the Cardiovascular Perfusion Advanced Specialty Certificate program. Students must have successfully completed all Term 1 courses. Contact details for PTS Program Assistant for Perfusion: Melanie on 604-451-7137, email Melanie_Beggs-Murray@bcit.ca
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
Describe the systemic effects CPB can have on multiple organ systems
Describe pre-operative preparation techniques and patient considerations
Explain the importance of Coagulation Management while on CPB
Discuss the application of appropriate anticoagulation techniques during CPB
