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.
Hemodynamic Monitoring and Diagnostics provides a systematic review of the current technologies used to determine the cardiovascular and pulmonary status of the cardiac surgery patient. This course describes the principles of the technology and how to appropriately interpret the acquired data so as to assess the status of the cardiac surgery patient.
This online Learning Hub course requires 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 2 courses. Contact details for PTS Program Assistant for Cardiovascular Perfusion: Melanie on 604-451-7137; email Melanie_Beggs-Murray@bcit.ca
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
Discriminate the physiology of the heart as related to the cardiac cycle and chamber pressures.
Differentiate the physical assessment techniques of the cardiovascular system.
Analyze the technical components of the hemodynamic monitoring system.
arterial pressure monitoring
central venous pressure monitoring
pulmonary artery pressure monitoring
cardiac output monitoring
mixed venous saturation monitoring
Interpret hemodynamic and ECG monitoring in patients with cardiac disease.
Critically analyze the principles of Radiography (X-Ray) as pertaining to the assessment of a patient with cardiac disease.
Effective as of Spring/Summer 2016
