This course deals with ancillary perfusion technologies used in the support of patients with cardiovascular and non-cardiovascular pathologies. The Clinical Perfusionist must have a thorough understanding of all related technologies, and educated to a level that enables them to take a lead in patient care outside of the routine Perfusion environment. This process is essential for Perfusionists working within a cardiovascular centre.
This is a D2L course and requires computer and internet access. This course is reserved for students who have been accepted into the Cardiovascular Perfusion Advanced Specialty Certificate program.
