Basic Skills Introduction

Refresher courses for practicing perfusionists

Perfusionists interested in brushing up on skills they are no longer familiar with, before they use them in the operating room, can attend a skill refresher course. Has it been 20 years since you used a centrifugal pump? Are you contemplating the use of VAVD or RAP at your institution? Do you want to run a few cases with your electronic data management system before you have to use it with a patient? Interested in trialing that new pump base before you commit to buying it? You can practice these and other skills in a high fidelity environment. Through simulation you can practice good technique and fully explore and understand the ramifications of bad techniques before you have to use the skills on your patients.
