International Perfusion Art Gallery

Welcome to the Perfusion Photo Gallery

This is a collection of Perfusion related pictures that have been submitted by perfusionists from all over the world.

The intention is to develop an online photo gallery highlighting the lives and events of people in our profession, thereby becoming a bridge between perfusion cultures, as well as introducing the vivid world of perfusion to people unfamiliar with what we do.

It helps answer the question: What is a Perfusionist?

Too often we isolate ourselves in our professional lives, and forget to recognize what it is exactly- that we do. This gallery provides a mosaic of some of the facets within our lives as perfusionists- and reflects the unrecognized spectrum of our accomplishments as well as the immense level of responsibility we have to our patients.

This gallery captures not just the equipment or anatomy of the cardiac surgery environment. It paints a landscape of perfusionists as people- and forwards the suggestion of our profession as the great adventure it surely is.

To Submit A Picture: email: EccLog@gmail.com

Enjoy ____ ūüôā

Please Note: 

Any submissions of art to the gallery will be acknowledged to the artist, and confers consent for the use of CircuitSurfers.com to use, disseminate in whatever fashion deemed appropriate.

Editor’s Note:

I found this picture on FB awhile age, and don’t know who the artist is that I can attribute it to. ¬†However the drawing is so complex and well done, I thought it certainly was something I would like to share with you.

To the unknown artist:  Thank you for the contribution and please send me a note so I can credit you for this wonderful drawing.

As to the name?  It reminded me of the hieroglyphics, petroglyphs, and cave drawings, that the author Erich von Däniken (Chariots of the Gods), used for his argument that we had been influenced by higher technologies as we evolved.

Time & Place:   2014  Connecticut

About The Picture:

Hey Frank!

Its Mike Arciszewski, the perfusionist from Hartford Hospital you had met at the CREF meeting this past week. You will find that picture i showed you at the meeting attached in this email. The name of the picture is “Looking Under the Hood”, which I thought would represent the picture well since it is a inferior look at the delphin head and oxygenator, the work horses of the system. The pump is a terumo system 1 and it was taken at Hartford Hospital in CT where i work. I took this picture on my iphone 5.

Also, I was very impressed with your website and photos as well as your overall mission to bring Perfusion and Cardiac Surgery itself to the forefront of public media. I am the Vice President of the Connecticut Society of Perfusionists. I was hoping and wanted to extend and invitation to you to show off your photos as you did at the CREF meeting at our vendor exhibits. Our spring meeting is May 3rd and it is a 8 to 5 kind of a day. I think it would be a great and new addition to our meeting that our state has never seen before. Having your photos spread out across the meeting as they were in CREF will only enhance the experiance for all the perfusionists, MDs, and students attending. Let me know if you can make it out to CT for this!

Also let me know about the photo I sent you and looking forward to talking with you soon. Have a great night!

Sincerely,

Michael Arciszewski MHS CCP
