ECMO in Adults Training Course for FREE from ELSO

ELSO, the Extracorporeal Life Support Organization, is now doing free training course/modules/program on ECMO (extracorporeal membranous oxygenation), both VV and VA in this COVID-19 time. Take advantage! You need to register, of course. It has been over two years since I did ECMO and this is a good refresher course for me. Check it out for yourself! It’s free!

Also, I am working on a very thorough post on all things ECMO. Click on this link to get to that post.

Shout out to Jamie Zink @jamiezink77 for sharing this with me. 
Here’s what’s included in the modules. Word on the street is that at some point they may actually begin to hand out certificates for this. At the moment, however, this is not the case.


In this review, they look at “physiology, circuitry and technical aspects, related pharmacology, and management of complications.”

Who is this program for?

Intensivists, emergency medicine docs, cardiologists, anesthesiologists, critical care and emergency nurses, CRNA’s, anyone taking care of ECMO patients. You could also join in on the fun if you are a medical student or someone simply interested in learning about ECMO. It is worth your while.

How long does this ECMO training course take to complete?

6 hours
