Perfusion Art: “CCP”
This week is “Perfusionists Week” or day or minute or whatever. We never used to have a day dedicated to us- because everyday we were dedicated to something greater with a more noble spark behind it than cookies and cream.
That would be “ByPass Baybee” 🙂
Even though the title says CCP (Certified Cardiovascular Perfusionist), the title includes all of us from whatever country or certifying body.
This picture happens to be of a good friend and colleague, who in my eye, embodies the essential ingredients that are prerequisite to our profession:
Commitment, courage and compassion.
She has a wicked sense of humor as well, to help get us all through the day.
Dr Harinder Singh Bedi:
My heartfelt admiration and thanks to these noble warriors . Wishing you all a ‘No Clamps – No Kinks’ type of wonderful fun filled and progressive life. Because of your vital presence – our CTVS team is known as the ‘ man-eating tiger hunters who go looking for the tiger ‘ !!!
I am reminded of the following quotes when I remember all the wonderful CCP I have worked with :
Life has many battles …..
I am a warrior
As His champion, I enter the ring To meet the wrestlers five*…
Guided by the Hand Divine, I floor them all.
They came united as one; But, vanquished they go,
One by one.
(*Lust, Anger, Greed, Attachment & Pride)
