Checking the Vitals with TJ Ricklefs

In our next Heart of the Operation series episode, we talk with TJ Ricklefs, an Area Clinical Manager on SpecialtyCare’s Appleton, Wisconsin perfusion team. We discuss what led him to pursue a career in perfusion, how the perfusion job market has changed since the late ‘90s, and how having perfusionists involved in the hospital's heart program initiatives leads to improved patient outcomes.
