Hi There,

A cardiac Perfusion technologists is a specialized team who works in sync with doctors during surgery.
They are the ones who operates artificial ventilation, pumping of the blood, respiration etc, vital to help the surgeon perform during the surgery.

After mentioning the role a Perfusion technologists play, I do not think I need to elaborate on its scope.

As far as the lists of Colleges especially in Kerela, I could just locate one, but there are many colleges in the entire south, especially Bangalore providing the course. So best would be to keep your options open if you are interested in studying this 3 years Graduation course.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck.....................

Hence, the demand of Cardiac Perfusionist will never decrease. they mainly work in operating rooms in hospitals and surgical centers during heart and lung surgery, they also work in ICUs. A perfusionist keeps the surgical team informed of the patient's condition throughout the surgery. One of the main roles performed by Perfusionist is to operate the heart-lung machine that keeps a patient alive during serious procedures such as open-heart surgery. Perfusionists are also key personnel in placing and managing patients on ventricular assist devices as a bridge to recovery or heart transplantation and supporting patients receiving lung or liver transplants.

In this sense, a career as a perfusionist means committing to be available at all times.Hence, if you are firm to be available at on-call at any time of the day around the year, then this field is apt for you as it demands great amount of dedication and commitment.
