₹ 50000 inclusive of tax

Course description

FELLOWSHIP IN ECMO SPECIALIST (For Nurses, Perfusionists, Intensivists)

The basic care giver of ECMO maintenance rests with the Nurses and Perfusionists and ICU Staff. 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 ICU staff 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 SIMULATION SOCIETY along with the INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY OF CARDIOVASCULAR ULTRASOUND has introduced a special, first of its kind ONLINE FELLOWSHIP 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.
