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?

How to support my work: my efforts are at no cost to you and I would like to keep it that way. You have to look at ads on this website, listen to them on my podcast and YouTube content. Thanks for bearing with me. You could also support my work by clicking on my Amazon Affiliate links prior to ordering things off of Amazon. For example, if you want to learn more about Mechanical Ventilation, I recommend starting off with The Ventilator Book by Will Owens. If you click on that link, a window for Amazon will open up and I will earn between a 1-3% commission at no expense to you. The fun thing is that if you order anything else on Amazon, I will earn that amount off of your shopping cart even if you do not purchase the book. Pretty cool, right? In 2020, Amazon Affiliates helped me pay for the hosting of my website, LLC fees, and Netflix.
