The Cardiac Care Technicians are trained to assist cardiologists in all invasive and non-invasive procedures (angiogram, angioplasty, pacemaker implant, stress echo, tilt table test, holter monitoring). They also monitor patients for any type of cardiac problems within a healthcare setting. Students will also be able to interpret basic ECGs and recognize cardiac dysrhythmias. Cardiac Care Technicians also prepare patients for open-heart surgeries and for implanting of pacemakers. Technologists monitor patients during these procedures.
