ECMO Learning Pathway


ECMO Learning Pathway – Fourth Phase

The ECMO learning pathway is designed to support perfusionists, nurses, respiratory therapists, and ECMO specialists while developing their approach to using the CentriMag™ Acute Circulatory Support System for ECMO treatment.

We have broken down the ECMO learning pathway into four phases:

  • FIRST PHASE - ECMO General Introduction, Reimbursement and Warranty
  • SECOND PHASE - Devices, Components, and Priming
  • THIRD PHASE - ECMO Patient Management and ECMO Transport
  • FOURTH PHASE - ECMO Data and Outcomes, ECMO Bridging Strategies, and COVID-19

In the fourth and final phase, we offer Abbott product information, online publications, and additional online resources that cover clinical outcomes for the CentriMag Circulatory Support System, bridging strategies for ECMO, COVID-19 and more.
