Interested in a career in Perfusion?

The ANZCP provides assurance to employers, hospitals, patients and health profession colleagues that they are receiving perfusion / extra-corporeal support services from a trained, certified and accredited perfusionist.

Perfusionists operate the heart-lung bypass machine generally during heart surgery to maintain safe and stable patient circulation while the heart is stopped for surgical repair. The patient is said to be on cardiopulmonary bypass. Perfusionists may operate such equipment during any medical situation where it is necessary to support or temporarily substitute for the patient’s heart and lung function.
