What about Perfusionists/ECMO Specialists?
Register as a nurse, it will work perfectly
What about Mid-Levels?
This is a little more complicated. The difference between the doc and nurse tickets is whether you cannulate during the course. If your scope of practice will include the actual placement of the ECMO cannulae, then register as a doc. Be aware: you must already have excellent central line skills. If you will be assisting with ECPR, but not placing garden hoses in vessels, then register as a nurse.
What about Fellows, Residents, etc.?
You are welcome to register as a doc, but unfortunately we can’t offer training discounts
What about EMS?
In general the course is not suited to prehospital folks, but if you have a role in the hospital, you are welcome to register as a nurse.
