A fantastic opportunity has arisen at Great Western Hospital for an apprenticeship to train in Cardiac Physiology including a fully funded BSc in Healthcare Science.
Depending on your role, you could be carrying out a range of procedures in cardiac sciences including:
·echocardiography - using ultrasound to obtain pictures of the heart to help diagnose and monitor diseases that affect the structure and function of the heart including heart valves and muscle
·pacemaker implantation and follow-up - taking measurements and programming pacemaker devices to ensure they are functioning correctly when they are implanted and during long-term follow-up
·exercise stress testing - closely monitoring a patient as they exercise (usually on a treadmill) to test if the blood vessels supplying the heart are working properly. Can be used as part of diagnosis or monitoring the response to treatment including surgery.
