What Is a Cardiovascular Technician?

Jun 07, 2010

Cardiovascular technicians are specially trained individuals who assist cardiologists with a number of non-invasive and invasive tests done to determine cardiac illnesses or irregularities in heart beats. The cardiovascular technician usually has at least an associate's degree education. He or she is able to work in the hospital setting, office setting, or even an outpatient diagnostic center. The cardiovascular technician can assist with stress tests, placing holter monitors, performing EKGs, and many other tests that cardiologists order regularly.

They work closely with the cardiologist, quickly sending him abnormal results and also scheduling further testing as needed. They also work closely with other health care professionals like cardiovascular nurses and other technicians. Cardiovascular technicians work closely with patients every day.

Cardiovascular technicians are able to find work all over the country and are well compensated for their expertise.
