Modular Courses

Complete all 4 modules for learnECMO ECLS certification

Courses will provide high-fidelity simulation and extensive practice with task trainers that isolate the key component technical and procedural elements of effective ECMO management for all modalities. The aim is to provide variable difficulty levels to hone the skills of basic procedural ergonomics through to realistic troubleshooting of technical difficulties. The course finales will then assimilate these individual components into high fidelity simulations to put it all together. The high-fidelity simulation and task trainers will include:

USS-guided bifemoral vessel cannulation
Avalon cannulation
TOE trainer for optimising cannula placement
USS for monitoring cerebral/limb perfusion & lung pathology
ECMO circuit set-up, troubleshooting & emergency management
