Action Alert

ASRT requested that HP 533 and LD 844, “An Act to Protect the Practice of Certain Cardiovascular Professionals,” provide a clearer definition of “cardiovascular professionals” and clarify which nationally recognized credentials would be accepted. 

Bill sponsors amended HP 533 and LD 844 to permit a cardiovascular technologist credentialed by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs, Cardiovascular Credentialing International or a successor organization to perform activities limited to procedure table actions that are necessary during cardiac catheterization or electrophysiology procedures. These activities include enabling fluoroscopy to start the procedure, changing the field of view, positioning the image intensifier, adjusting collimation, placing the wedge filter, panning the procedure table during exposure, stepping on the pedal at the physician's direction when the physician cannot reach the pedal, and performing other similar actions under the delegated authority and direct supervision of the physician.

The amended bills were approved and enacted on May 22, 2023.
