My Job

Education for this job.Most cardiology technologists complete a two-year junior or community college program. The first year usually covers core medical technology and cardiology programs. The second year may consist of specialized instruction in either invasive or non-invasive procedures. Those who are qualified in a related allied health profession only need to complete the year of specialized instruction. Graduates from programs accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education for Cardiovascular Technology (JRC-CVT) are eligible to register as professional technologists with the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers or Cardiovascular Credentialing International. Because advances and new discoveries are frequent, cardio techs need to continually upgrade. This may mean formal courses or self-driven research. Most medical professionals read multiple medical journals on a regular basis.

What does this job do? Cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary technicians perform tests and various procedures on the pulmonary or cardiovascular system, which are basically the heart and its related organs and functions.

An interview for this job. The name of the person was Euretha Hayde. The job that she had was Electrocardiography and ECG interpretation and has developed a manual to train ECG techs. What I learned from this job is that you travel a lot, you learn many new things, you need a lot of experience, you can save people’s lives, and you use your hands lots of times.

The current event for this job. Cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary technicians save people’s lives, usually working on their organs and their hearts. They do lots of test to see if anything is wrong with the person, and they give some people medicine if something is wrong with them. Cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary technicians mostly use their hands and tools, but they walk a lot too. They walk around a lot to get to the people, get the things they need, and come all the way back.
