ABOUT THE COURSE:
Cardiovascular Technology involves a variety of procedures, instruments and technologies to diagnose and treat cardiac and vascular problems. Cardiovascular Technologists perform electrocardiograms (ECGs), Exercise Stress Test, Echocardiography, assist Cardiac Catheterization,invasive and non-invasive proceduresand advanced life support techniques like intra aortic balloon pump, pacemakers, ICDs,CRTs,and LVADs.
Most positions for cardiovascular technologists are in hospitals. Cardiovascular technologist handlestheequipment, technologies and tools in Cardiac Catheterisation Centres as well as their regular maintenance which requires advanced and focused knowledge of the scientific principles on which the tests and equipments function.Cardiovascular Technologists are given hands-on skill in using these equipments correctly and safely.
Admission to the B.Sc. Cardiovascular Technology programme in any year will be based on the results of Srinivas University Entrance Test (SUET) held that year.
DURATION OF THE COURSE:
Duration shall be for a period of three and half years including six months of Internship.
A candidate seeking admission to the B.Sc. Cardiovascular Technology shall have completed 17 years of age as on 31st December of the year of admission and have studied English as one of the principle subject during the tenure of the course

SCOPE OF THE COURSE:
Cardiovascular technologist is an integral member of healthcare profession, using various imaging technologies; they assist physicians in determining underlying cardiac pathologies. Entry level technologist perform electrocardiogram (ECG) & may set up stress tests &Holter monitoring, ambulatory BP monitoring. They can perform more diagnose tests using ultrasound,i.e. echocardiography & other type of non-invasive procedures. They may operate ultrasound equipment to take a close look at the chambers, valves & vessels of human heart .On the other hand a technologist can assist doctors by working in cardiac catheterization laboratory.
Entrance exam will be conducted every year in the last week of June or first week of July and students will be selected based on the rank system.
