Cardiovascular technologists and technicians schedule appointments, perform ultrasound or cardiovascular procedures, review doctorsâ€™ interpretations and patient files, and monitor patientsâ€™ heart rates. They also operate and care for testing equipment, explain test procedures and compare findings to a standard to identify problems. Other day-to-day activities vary significantly between specialties.
