All 3 (Cheryl, Myron, Wes) were subperb! Cheryl was extremely informative during simulations. She has a knack for pulling everything together that we learned while watching the sims without detracting from viewing the sims. I have taught many times before and this is much harder to do than it would seem.

Wes, Cheryl and Myron were great! They were very knowledgable and really provided fantastic simulations. Oddly enough, we got an ECMO patient less than 24 hours after the completion of the classes...we were all GREATY prepared!! Thank you again!

the sessions were great. I wish we could have the trainers come back in a few months and just do sim labs with us to see how much we retained. We could use this since we do so few cases right now.

I went thru this class during my second week of work at __________, I have worked in a cvicu for 6 years. The ECMO Advantage Specialists were well prepared, welcoming, and very supportive of our staff and program. I have already recommended this program to the hospital I came from to the surgeons, intensivists, cardiac surgery pa's, and the management on the unit I came from. Myron was the funniest!

It was a very stressful class simply from the subject matter. Our trainers were excellent instructors. I don't know when my next ECMO patient will roll through the door, but I feel a lot more prepared to care for them now.

I liked the (Simulation) scenarios the best. two individulas worked on the patient while the class viewed the scenario on a monitor. excellent way to do the scenarios.

Cheryl was great and I thought she was the best teacher and most relatable. I understood her perspective, especially from the NICU standpoint. Todd and Myron were both very knowledgable and very good in the hands on part of the course and showing us the pump and how it worked and how to troubleshoot. Overall, they were a good balance between the 3 of them to learn the content.

I would have liked a longer training just to absorb the info. it was a lot to cram in a weeks time especially since I am a respiratory therapist. The medication part and blood product part is what was hard for me. I understand the pump. I just want to better understand the entire picture.
