Cardiovascular Technologist is a vast and pompous field in the health sciences. Cardiovascular Technologist is initially a Cardiac Physiologist. Cardiac Physiologist is a specialist who trained to diagnose and treat vascular, muscles, veins of a body most importantly trained for cardiac system including heart.
Cardiovascular Technologist specializes in three major fields Blood Vessels Technology, Echocardiography and Invasive Cardiology. This technology field can easily understand by its name as Cardio-Vascular treated Heart, Blood vessels and muscles of heart.
They study 2 to 4-year degree programs in the Echo cardiology, Invasive Cardiology and Vascular technologies. High school diploma and any bottom level medical studies or practice are the most common requirement for studying in Cardiovascular Field. Those who only specialized in invasive studies of cardiac are Invasive Cardiovascular Technologists.
Cardiovascular Technologists specialize in handling, controlling and operating Holter Monitors. Holter Monitor is made to check heart rates and stress of patients. It is an essential machine for ECG (Echocardiography). They also practice cardiac catheterization, which is a catheter/tube inserting process.
Health fields and studies are continual advanced and in-process technology studies. This field is very sophisticated in terms of studies and practicing as it directly relates to heart surgeries like angioplasty and others. Cardiovascular technologists basically monitor heart patients including patient’s heart rates and vascular blockages.
They also create patients files related to heart. Technologist conducts heart reports and heart/vascular ultrasounds with the direction of a specialized heart doctor. The salary of a cardiovascular technologist was around $40,000 in America as it has shown in few past years’ salary research reports.
