Cardiovascular technology, anatomy, pharmacology and EKG interpretation

The Associate in Science (A.S.) in Cardiovascular Technology degree program provides students with an organized curriculum that includes required general education classes and required core professional classes for the invasive and noninvasive cardiovascular curriculum. The registered cardiovascular invasive specialist and the registered cardiac sonographer/registered diagnostic cardiac sonographer are vital members of cardiovascular teams.

Their primary role is to assist physicians during diagnostic and interventional cardiovascular procedures, monitor patients’ hemodynamic status during the procedure and operate specialized imaging equipment with consideration to radiation dose and safety. In noninvasive cardiology, their role is to perform and assist in noninvasive cardiac procedures such as echocardiograms, exercise treadmill testing, stress echocardiograms and other diagnostic cardiac examinations.
