Cardiovascular Perfusion Clinical 3 is a continuation of PERF 8200. The students are expected to improve upon the level of competency gained during PERF 8100 and PERF 8200. In this clinical course, students will gain experience with ancillary devices used in Perfusion, as well as expand their knowledge in the safe conduct of Cardiopulmonary Bypass. Modes of learning for each device will include lectures, wet lab simulations and clinical application. Special CPB cases, scenarios and advanced Perfusion techniques will also be discussed.
This Clinical Practicum is reserved for students who have been accepted into the Cardiovascular Perfusion Advanced Specialty Certificate Program. Contact details for the PTS Program Assistant for Perfusion: Melanie on 604-451-7137, email Melanie_Beggs-Murray@bcit.ca
