Perfusion Simulation

student demonstrates perfusion equipment in an academic lab

The Cardiovascular Perfusion Program at MUSC has two Califia cardiopulmonary bypass simulators. These simulators can be used in either of the two perfusion labs for both student practice and evaluation.

The perfusion faculty have presented and published extensively in the area of patient safety and the advantages of high-fidelity simulation in perfusion education. High-fidelity simulation significantly increases student skills and confidence prior to clinical rotations.
