cardiovascular services

Trusted by more than 400 hospitals to support 150,000 procedures, SpecialtyCare is the largest provider of cardiovascular services in the U.S. With our national presence and local clinicians, we support 1 in 8 of all heart surgeries performed in the country every year. Specializing in top tier outsourced clinical services, SpecialtyCare can help you create a program that meets all of your cardiovascular needs. We work seamlessly with your operating room team to increase OR efficiency, reduce costs, and improve patient outcomes.

Cardiovascular Service Offerings:

  • Perfusion-Perfusion is the passage of fluid through organs and tissues via the bloodstream. During cardiac surgeries, perfusion must be conducted by a heart-lung machine, which continues the blood-pumping function so surgeons can operate on the heart.
  • ECMO-Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) provides temporary support for patients with cardiac and/or pulmonary failure. An ECMO machine provides life support to patients whose heart and lungs can’t provide enough gas exchange or perfusion.
  • Cardiac ATS-Cardiac autotransfusion (ATS) is designed to boost a hospital’s blood management program by recycling the patient’s own blood.
  • Anesthesia Tech-Anesthesia technology is a distinct health profession that focuses on the necessary clinical procedures that assist the anesthesia provider in the safe and efficient care of patients.
  • Cardiovascular Monitoring Technician-CVMTs work daily with anesthesia partners and other physicians, obtaining the equipment and products needed to ensure a smooth procedure for patients while assisting MD’s and partners during procedures.
  • Perfusion Assistant-Perfusion Assistants assist with preparing equipment used by perfusionists to ensure a smooth and efficient workflow within the surgery room.

“As cardiac surgery is a dynamic field, so must be our partners in perfusion.”

– Kai Engstad, MD-Legacy Health
