CVOR Tech FAQs

What does a CVOR Tech do?

CVOR techs assist cardiac surgeons before, during, and after various types of heart surgeries. They prepare the cardiovascular operating room, help with preoperative transport, and assist and support the surgical team during the operation by preparing and providing equipment and instruments under the direction of registered nurses, CV surgeons, and anesthesiologists. Throughout the procedure, they help monitor the patient, and afterward, they assist with transporting the patient to a recovery room or CVICU. Common tasks they may perform or assist with include:

  • Assembling appropriate supplies and instruments before surgical procedures

  • Anticipating surgeons’ needs during surgical procedures

  • Handing instruments and supplies to surgeons

  • Maintaining accurate counts of instruments, sponges, and other supplies

  • Autoclaving instrument trays

  • Ensuring specimens are properly handled and sent to the proper locations

  • Maintaining current knowledge of various surgical procedures and supplies

  • Providing support wherever needed

Where do CVOR Techs work?

About 72% of surgical technologists work in hospitals, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which is also where most CVOR techs are employed. However, they also may work at specialized heart clinics, dedicated cardiovascular surgery centers, and travel allied health agencies.

What skills make a good CVOR Tech?

Good CVOR techs excel as key members of cardiovascular surgical teams and possess in-depth knowledge of sterilization techniques, basic anatomy, surgical procedures, and patient safety. They have a high level of focus and physical stamina to endure intense cardiac procedures, always remaining vigilant to help ensure positive patient outcomes. Excellent manual dexterity, verbal communication skills, and teamwork skills are other positive attributes of good CVOR techs.

How to become a Travel CVOR Tech

Becoming a travel CVOR tech requires a high school diploma or GED and a certificate or postsecondary degree. While they don’t need a medical degree, to be eligible to take the Certified Surgical Technologist exam offered by the National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting, they must complete a certificate program or earn an associate degree from a program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs or the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools

A few states require CVOR techs to be certified, but even if the state doesn’t require it, many employers prefer applicants with CST certification. CVOR techs can also accelerate their careers by earning Tech in Surgery-Certified (TS-C) certification through the National Center for Competency Testing. Most travel CVOR tech positions require formal training with one to three years of CVOR experience preferred.
