Founded in May of 2007 by Randy Bartilson, ECMO Advantage offered customized services to the greater Extracorporeal Community. Randy brought his unique experience as an ECMO Specialist and Coordinator to bear by bringing experts together from around the United States offering consulting, staffing, transport, and education to ECMO Programs across the country. At a time when it was very difficult to find staffing support outside of an immediate institutions’ staff, this was a unique and exceptional offering.

In 2016, ECMO Advantage is now the pre-eminent provider of extracorporeal related services to the healthcare community. These services include: consulting, training and development, and staffing nationwide.  These services are widely encompassing and can be tailored specifically to your institutions requirements.
