The Bachelor of Science in Perfusion Technology is a three-year degree programme for undergraduate students. The study of physiology, pathology and related equipment used to maintain and/or assume the function of the heart and/or lungs during medical operations is known as perfusion technology. Perfusion technologists and students pursuing a BSc in Perfusion Technology prepare and operate heart-lung machines and other sophisticated equipment as instructed by healthcare specialists.
The technique of delivering extracorporeal circulation to artificially maintain and temporarily replace a patient's respiratory and circulatory systems is known as cardiovascular perfusion. Clinical perfusionists are highly trained members of the cardiac surgical team who give life-saving assistance to patients who require extracorporeal circulation, such as those undergoing major cardiothoracic, vascular, and transplant operations, as well as those who are critically sick.
The minimal requirement for admission to B.Sc Perfusion Technology is a 12th-grade pass with a science aggregate of 50%.
