Welcome to the Canadian Association of Cardio-Pulmonary Technologists

Pulmonary Function Lab

The Canadian Association of Cardio-Pulmonary Technologists membership is composed of technologists employed in the Heart Catheterization Laboratories and/or Pulmonary Function Laboratories. The Registered Technologist works closely with the physician in order to provide information relevant to the patient's diagnosis, prognosis and surgical risk. The Registered Technologist requires specialized skills in order to perform the diagnostic and therapeutic procedures used for the investigation and treatment of pulmonary and cardiovascular disorders. He/she must have extensive knowledge of instrumentation and techniques, and furthermore, must be able to elicit active cooperation from the individual patient during these procedures.

The CACPT is committed to maintaining the highest standards possible for all Registered Cardio-Pulmonary Technologists. The CACPT Bylaws, Standards of Conduct and Annual National Registry Examinations are designed to establish and maintain these high professional standards.
