Job Description for Perfusionist

A perfusionist works in a medical institution to provide care related to the maintenance of the circulatory system. A perfusionist operates equipment whenever medical situations deem it necessary for patient’s circulatory and respiratory functions to be supported. During transfusions, a perfusionist operates the necessary extracorporeal circulation and autotransfusion equipment. A perfusionist may administer IVs to patients and subsequently will need to be familiar with relevant administering methods. The perfusionist should be familiar with all equipment related to the job, including ventricular assist devices. The perfusionist will often work with a physician but should be able to independently determine which equipment needs to be used. When the devices are being used, the perfusionist should be able to monitor the patient’s vital signs and make sure that the machines are working correctly. A perfusionist may also work in an operation room to assist with open heart surgery. The perfusionist should be able to work well on a team, recognize problems that are encountered, and be able to correct them or refer the patient to the appropriate medical party.
