CSPM 216 - Clinical Practicum III


Semester Hours: 5
The Clinical Practicum Courses completed at Northwell Health institutions are designed to provide perfusion students with an intensive opportunity to develop, practice and master the skills required to perform safe extracorporeal circulation procedures. These clinical practice courses require directed hands-on use of equipment and techniques that constitute the cardiopulmonary bypass procedure. Under the direct supervision of a clinical instructor, the students are exposed to increasing levels of responsibility in the clinical conduct of perfusion. As the students’ abilities permit, they assume expanding responsibilities with the ultimate goal of functioning independently as a practicing perfusionist. These clinical practice courses are taught in the operating room theater with special emphasis on developing technical skills in the extracorporeal procedure itself. Instruction will also include current adjunctive methods in autotransfusion, myocardial preservation techniques, intra-aortic balloon support, and aseptic techniques.
