Perfusion

A perfusionist ia a specialised health care professional who uses the heart lung machine during cardiac surgery and other surgeries that require cardiopulmonary bypass to manage the patient's physiological status.

Due to the nature of the cardiac surgery, the surgeon needs to work on a still heart, and it is necessary to temporarily replace the patient's circulatory and respiratory function. It is the responsibility of the perfusionist to assume the function of the heart and/or lungs during these medical procedures.

A perfusionist operates a heart-lung machine, which is an artificial blood pump, which propels oxygenated blood to the patient's tissues while the surgeon operateson the heart.
