I am very interested in this field. I was wanting to know if anyone worked as a Perfusionist? Or do you know someone working as a Perfusionist? Thanks!

My father was the first perfusionist in Dayton, Ohio in the 1960's. He loved his job. :)

He stopped working as a perfusionist when hospital admin decided to have him train nurses to do his job WITHOUT financially compensating him for training them. This hurt him very badly, so he went to work elsewhere.

I've seen perfusionist performing their jobs, and it is very interesting work! :)
