B.Sc. in Cardiac Technology is a 3-year full-time undergraduate course divided into 6 semesters. Cardiac Technology is an allied course in medicine.

Cardiac Technologists assist physicians during invasive cardiovascular testing; a tube is inserted into one of the blood vessels that carry blood into the heart.

The job of a technician is to perform tasks that require less medical training before and during the procedure so doctors can focus on the results of the test.

A patient’s life may depend on the efficiency of the Cardiac Care Technologists. The course has been designed to teach eligible candidates to:

  • test patients for heart problems.
  • take care of those suffering from cardiovascular disease.
  • use and maintain medical equipment and machines used in the field.
  • apply basic and advanced life support skills.
  • study emergency invasive procedures that could save an individual's life.
  • insert catheters and use pacemakers in practical settings.
  • study cardiac-related procedures.
  • observe the correct way to perform cardiac procedures before applying practical skills.

Suh management of cardiac disorders includes:

  • complex diagnostic and therapeutic procedures
  • relevant use of computer hardware, tools, machines, and pharmacological agents.
  • advanced knowledge of the scientific principles on which the tests and equipment function.
  • correct and safe use of such cardiac equipment.
  • adequate knowledge of structure and function of the human body, especially the cardiovascular system.
  • an optimal delivery of cardiovascular health care.
  • complex diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
  • skills for management of various cardiac disorders.
  • application of specialized occupational theory
  • skills to work independently as qualified Cardiovascular Technologists.
  • cardiac catheterization and electrophysiology.
  • technical procedures under the direction of a qualified physician.

JOB POSITION JOB DESCRIPTION AVERAGE ANNUAL SALARY
Cardiovascular Technologist Cardiovascular Technicians use a variety of procedures and instruments to diagnose and treat heart disease and vascular problems. The entry-level technicians perform electrocardiograms (EKGs), and may set up stress tests and Holter monitoring. With their experience and additional training, such technicians can perform more diagnostic tasks, by using sonography and other types of non-invasive procedures as well as advanced life support techniques. INR 6,68,000
Medical Sonographer Medical Sonographers play an important role in non-invasive diagnostics. They perform imaging procedures which use non-ionizing, and high frequency sound waves to create an image when it can be used in place of exploratory surgery or imaging that uses radiation. The common use for sonography is to look at an unborn fetus in prenatal care, but some of Medical Sonographers can also specialize in imaging the abdomen, breasts or brain. Typical duties include preparing patients, explaining the exam, and performing the procedures and reporting the findings to the patient or a physician. Most of the Medical Sonographers work in hospital settings, and are required to stand or walk for long periods of time.  INR 7,00,000
Cardiologist Patients are typically referred to Cardiologists by their regular doctors. Patients may be experiencing symptoms that indicate heart trouble. Cardiologists diagnose and treat heart and blood vessel problems using a combination of symptom review, physical examination, and medical testing. Cardiologists work in private practice centres as consultants to patients' general care practitioners, while some others work for universities as researchers and teachers. INR 16,00,000
Dialysis Technician Dialysis Technicians, often referred to as Patient Care Technicians (PCTs), follow strict protocols to guarantee safe and effective outcomes for patients undergoing this four-hour procedure.

Hi Praneeth, Cardiac Care Technology is an allied health course that gets up on board the medical profession. Cardiac Care Technologist assists physicians during invasive cardiovascular testing, where a tube is inserted into one of the blood vessels that carry blood into the heart. and A cardiovascular technologist (also known as a vascular technologist) is a health professional who diagnoses cardiovascular problems. They use medical imaging methods like ultrasounds to diagnose heart conditions, vascular problems, or ailments that involves the heart, it's arteries, valves, or blood vessels.

Hi Tejaswini, intensive cardio care technology refers to special systemic management for the patients with severe cardiovascular disease (CVD), which consists of heart disease and vascular disease. Dedicated medical staff is required for CICU in order to perform best patient management whereas Cardiac cath technology refers to technology used in cardiac catheterization, which is an invasive diagnostic and treatment procedure. Courses in cardiac cath technology are typically part of an associate degree program in cardiovascular technology and are offered by community and technical colleges.
