Cardiovascular Technology Degree Programs
Cardiovascular technologists and technicians are allied health professionals who work with heart patients, employing specialized training and skills in order to help doctors diagnose and treat disorders of the heart or blood vessels through reviewing medical records, examining and monitoring patients, performing procedures such as EKG's, Ultrasounds, or assisting physicians with cardiac catheterization.
Cardiovascular techs also operate and care for sophisticated cardiac testing equipment, explain test procedures to patients, draw blood samples if needed, measure, analyze, and image the heart, and help interpret test results. Doctors depend on the results of these tests to determine the presence and extent of heart disease and as the basis for prescribing therapy if needed.
Cardiovascular technologists can specialize in any of three areas of practice: invasive cardiology, echocardiography, or vascular technology.
