About

Surgeons don’t perform open heart surgery alone. Cardiovascular Perfusion graduates at Quinnipiac University are essential members of the support team who make this and other types of life-saving procedures possible.

Overview

They’ll teach you to operate the equipment perfusionists use to support or replace a patient’s heart and lung functions during cardiac surgery and to monitor vital cardiopulmonary signs to keep the patient stable. You’ll also learn to administer the appropriate medications and anesthesia during surgery. 

Learning outcomes
