About the Certificate Course :
The basic care giver of ECMO maintenance rests with the perfusionists. The right size and type of cannula, ECMO flows, temperature regulation and maintenance of fluids, blood, heparin and inotrope infusion is the bane of the perfusionists.
The perfusionist is in a unique position to successfully maintain and run the ECMO, guide the ICU nurse, use the long term oxygenator and centrifugal pump judiciously and with deftness run both the adult and paediatric ECLS programme with great precaution and success. To take ECMO to greater heights in India, the South West Asia Chapter Extracorporeal Life support organization 2018 (SWAC ELSO 2018) has introduced a special, first of its kind course in ECMO technology with experts in the field, teaching and training those interested delegates with workshops on simulators/panel discussion/ lectures/ pro-con debates and assessment with certification.
