Those interested in working in the field of cardiovascular technology can pursue a Bachelor of Science in Cardiovascular Technology to prepare them for a career in this area. The Bachelor of Science in Cardiovascular Technology program runs an average of two to three years and is usually followed by a hospital internship. The program is designed to train students in effectively treating heart patients. Students learn proper analysis of data, use of cardiovascular and patient monitoring equipment, patient and doctor consultation conduct, and diagnostic and therapy treatment procedures. Additionally, the program requires students to take intense science courses, as well as a number of math courses. Cardiovascular Technology aid doctors with diagnosis and treatment of heart and blood vessel illnesses. Invasive cardiology involves such procedures as assisting with patients during open heart-surgery and implanting pacemakers. Non-invasive cardiovascular technology includes performing medical evaluations, ultrasounds and pre- and post- surgery circulation exams.
