Perfusion Technology is the study of physiology, pathology and associated equipment helped to support the function of the heart and lungs in medical procedures. Perfusion is the science of providing extracorporeal pulmonary circulation as a means of artificial life support by temporarily replacing the patient's respiratory and circulatory systems. Clinical perfusionists are skilled professionals who play a major role during organ transplants and provide life support to critically ill patients.

The Bachelor of Perfusion Technology program aims to produce qualified perfusion technologists who can provide extracorporeal circulation to patients undergoing major cardiothoracic, vascular, and transplant surgeries to artificially support and temporarily replace the patients' respiratory and circulatory systems.
