Objectives of the Course

Perfusion Technology degree course is to provide a competent Cardiac Perfusionist who is well versed with modern technologies and up to date knowledge in patient care. This course is to provide a framework to guide safe and effective cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). Clinical teams implement the content of this document when developing institution-specific protocols for patients undergoing cardiac surgery utilizing CPB.

A perfusionist, also known as a clinical perfusionist or a cardiovascular perfusionist, is a specialized healthcare professional who uses the heart-lung machine during cardiac surgery and other surgeries that require cardiopulmonary bypass to manage the patient's physiological status. The perfusionist is a highly trained member of the cardiothoracic surgical team which consists of cardiac surgeons, anesthesiologists, physician assistants, surgical technologists, and nurses. The perfusionist is solely responsible for the management of the physiological and metabolic needs of the cardiac surgical patient so that the cardiac surgeon may operate on a still, unbeating heart. This is accomplished through the utilization of the heart-lung machine, oxygenator, filters, reservoirs and tubing. The perfusionist is responsible for the management of circulatory and respiratory functions of the patient so that the cardiac surgeon can focus on the actual surgical procedure

Course outline

It is a four year professional Degree course comprising of five subjects in the first two years and three subjects in the third year. There will be three internal examinations conducted by the college and one public examination at the end of each academic year. This program consists of three years of clinical faculty supervised theoretic learning and practical hands-on training. This enables the student to apply specialized occupational theory, skills and concepts.  At the end of third year the candidates will have to pass the Kerala University of Health Sciences final year (Third year) examination, before starting compulsory internship of one year.  Upon completion of the three-year course and one year internship the candidate become eligible for the bachelor degree and will evolve into a full trained, qualified perfusionist capable of working independently.
