STC Hosts Class on New Medical Device

March 24, 2014 - Medical professionals and students alike gathered at Southeastern Technical College on March 18 to see and learn about a device making its way into Georgia’s medical centers.

Keith McCranie, from the Medical Center of Central Georgia (MCCG) in Macon, presented the left ventricular assist device (LVAD) to the assembled crowd in STC’s Tattnall Auditorium.

“The LVAD is a relatively new device,” said Jim Jones, STC Emergency Services Education program director. “There has been little to no training available in our area in the past for this device.”

McCranie, who is the LVAD coordinator for MCCG, instructed the audience—which included allied health professionals and instructors and students from all of STC’s medical programs—on the operation and maintenance of the device.

Training sessions like these take place across the state because not every medical facility has been trained to handle LVADs. So, LVAD coordinators like McCranie tour Georgia and demonstrate the device, what to do with it and who to contact for detailed information.

McCranie was also one of many medical presenters STC’s medical programs have hosted and continue to host. Southeastern Tech has hosted presentations ranging from lectures on medicine to demonstrations of helicopter services.
