Back Table Setups: Bring-Back Hearts

The Setup


We were setting up case the other day, and had a new scrub getting a shot at passing instruments.  I was laughing and joked with them that it sounded like “Open Heart Boot Camp” – the way my friend  Andrea (the mentor) was drilling this young lady.

Part of her process was to have the scrubs take a picture of the setup- so they could refer to it down the road.

Well that got me thinking:  If we have a picture of it, why not send it to the Monitor we have sitting right there like a giant monolith behind the back table?  Put it on Circuit Surfers- and plop that little puppy straight from this site, to the monitor feed?

Wanted to see if there are any perfusionists out there that like to write- or want to write about their perfusion experiences?

  • Perfusionists from all corners of the World are invited to participate …
  • Writing / blogging is basically taking taking your point of view on aspects of perfusion and sharing it with others by posting it to this blog.
  • Because of their synchronous nature,  blogs have been compared to live broadcasting on television and radio in their immediacy and currency.
  • All it would take is a couple of posts a month, and a few fun pictures.
