B.Sc Cardiac Care Technology

Cardiac Care Technology is an allied health course that gets up on board the medical profession. Cardiac Care Technologist assists physicians during invasive cardiovascular testing, where a tube is inserted into one of the blood vessels that carry blood into the heart. Once doctors insert the catheter, technicians monitor patients’ heart rates and blood pressure, looking for any signs of trouble or distress. Cardiac care technicians are the medical professionals who administer various tests that assist the doctor in diagnosis.
