Arizona State Perfusion Society (ASPS)
Perfusion societies are composed of any medical professional who maintains interest in cardiothoracic surgery – with special focus on elements involving cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), and other mechanical circulatory support devices (MCSD).
An organized society is integral in providing a flow of information and continual education on past, current, and future techniques and technologies. This is often accomplished through formulating conferences and providing personalized professional networking opportunities. Societies are recognized by the American Board of Cardiopulmonary Perfusionists (ABCP), and organized educational activities are granted category-1 continuing education units (CEUs).
