At the end of 2017, the first new heart lungmachine was already placed in a test and test setup in the Sint Antonius Hospital. When we installed that first machine, St. Antonius Hospital was the very first hospital with this innovative machine. In total, St. Antonius has purchased nine of these advanced machines, all of which are now operational. The perfusionists provide the quantum clinical training for people from all over the world on the Medtronic and Spectrum Medical's Quantum Perfusion System


Currently we perform about  2000 open heart surgery procedures with use of CardioPulmonary Bypass (CPB) per year.

On January 8, 1959, the heart lungmachine was used for the first time at St. Antonius Hospital, then located in Utrecht

We are responsible for all extracorporeal circulation procedures and the technical support in (postcardiotomy) ExtraCorporeal Life Support (ECLS) in the Antonius Hospital.

The perfusionists also participate in scientific research and provide various types of training for the Heartbeat academy
