I would definitely recommend this program

What did you like the most?

Hands on, clinical case correlation and debriefings

Great instructors, very knowledgeable, well structured course, well appointed training center. Lots of time for questions and simulations

I really enjoyed the course. It went above any expectations I had. The instructors were fantastic!

The training seemed very comprehensive for fundamentals, in how to handle clinical critical events, as well as handling routine issues and weaning.

This is one of the best simulation I have experienced.
Feb 11-15,2019 EC2 Course

The lectures and various simulations were great! This comprehensive course brought about a fundamental paradigm shift and gave me deeper understanding of ECMO and the crucial lifesaving knowledge and skills set an ECMO Specialist must have. The next important step when I get back to my institution is gather support from leadership to help bring about this change that I firmly believe would: #1 Improve our current ECMO program, #2 Help elevate the knowledge and skills set of those who are currently managing and are already caring for our ECMO patients, and most importantly, #3 Assist greatly in our continued efforts to promote patient safety when caring for patients on ECMO support.

When asked, "What did you like most?" Simulations and the collective participation of our group. I appreciated the variety of ECMO equipment that was made available to the participants. I know now that my hospital ECMO program has a future because EC2 training provided me with skills, resources ie ELSO, your staff, to objectively evaluate their progress and help me to become a team player.

The hands on and group discussion for questions/demonstration was what I liked the most

the instructors were very flexible with their time and willing to work in whatever we wanted to!

Thank you it was awesome!

Very comfortable. Great facility

The interactiveness and hands on portion. It’s the perfect combination of lecture and hands on to ensure we are understanding the concepts.

Shanna and Myron were extremely knowledgeable and patient with our class. They took their time to answer questions and it is clear that they have a lot of experience and are passionate about the subject. You have a great staff that are very talented.

We just had this class at our hospital, and coming to the training center was great to reinforce what I learned and be able to have more complex thought processes with ECMO physiology and management.
10/19/2018 8:10 AM

Hands on sessions are invaluable. Well equipped facility.
10/19/2018 8:14 AM

Shanna, Sarah Beth and Myron were all very helpful and reactive to requests for specific scenarios and made everyone comfortable with the learning process.
10/19/2018 8:15 AM

SIM allows for mistakes and moment by moment decisions that everyone learns from
10/19/2018 8:15 AM

I enjoyed the balance between didactic and hands on skills. I don’t think one side was over the top and both are needed to provide a good learning opportunity
10/19/2018 8:15 AM

You have a great set-up and team.
10/19/2018 8:18 AM

The staff at ECMO Advantage couldn't have been more helpful. They would stay later with you if you needed more explanation. Great staff, fun & knowledgeable!

Your secretary is one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met

I thought the environment was really great. The Sim Lab and lecture area was very nice.
9/21/2018 9:18 AM

Hands on exposure. The complex scenarios were helpful. Thinking out loud, collaborating with others, disaster aversion, it was all be useful information to take home.
9/21/2018 8:16 AM

Real life stories of actual patient events from the instructors aided in cementing discussed lecture concepts.
9/21/2018 8:18 AM

Extremely organized, clean learning environment, very open to creating simulations based on the needs/desires of the participants - and THE SNACKS (lunches were always great too!)
10/10/2018 12:05 PM

I think that it was extremely helpful to the ECMO Specialist nurses. From a programmatic standpoint it was nice to see a different didactic layout that we are currently using. The whole experience was educational and positive.
10/10/2018 12:05 PM

I loved that there was so much sim
9/21/2018 8:21 AM

More thorough ecmo circuit checks. Involving more in depth analysis of the global patient as opposed to just “the pump.”
9/21/2018 8:18 AM

I took this course as an "evaluator" to be able to reinforce the information conveyed to our ECMO Specialist nurses. The content delivered was very organized and well presented, overall.
10/10/2018 12:05 PM

As a perfusionist, we are taught ECMO in our schooling; however, the educational content within the course was superior to that I received in my program. Things are constantly changing within the ECMO world and having a refresher course was very nice.
10/10/2018 12:05 PM

The training consisted of good combination of theoretical and practical knowledge which makes it valuable for prospective ECMO specialists of different backgrounds: RN, RT, PA etc.

"The course was perfectly designed for experienced ECMO specialists as well as for beginners. It gives good understanding of general ECMO concepts as well as specific details regarding VA vs VV ECMO, coagulation, troubleshooting etc. which were fully reflected by highly competent speakers..."

Excellent SIM practice
