Heartbeat Perfusion Solutions Uses Healthcare Simulation to Advance ECMO Training
Proper training across medical education helps to prevent medical errors and ensure that learners are prepared to perform life-saving measures, such as extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). This form of life support is used to provide prolonged cardiac and respiratory assistance for patients who have a heart and lungs that are unable to maintain an adequate amount of perfusion. Using an ECMO machine requires precision, which is why the company Heartbeat Perfusion Solutions Inc. has come to offer a consultative approach to deliver innovative Cardiovascular Perfusion and ECMO services that meet the needs of hospitals and healthcare facilities. This HealthySimulation.com article shares more about the company and how these solutions are helping to advance ECMO healthcare simulation training.
Currently, Heartbeat Perfusion Solutions offers a full range of qualified professionals to meet a facility’s unique perfusion staffing challenges. The company’s mission is to deliver high-quality comprehensive perfusion services with excellence, compassion, and competence. Specifically, Heartbeat Perfusion Solutions offers a wide range of highly-experienced professionals ready to fulfill all ECMO clinician’s staffing needs.
The company’s consulting services have been designed to assist with new program development and/or review of existing ECMO programs. This includes medical training simulations for healthcare professionals looking to extend their knowledge and practice on ECMO procedures. Heartbeat Perfusion Solutions’ Comprehensive ECMO course uses a combination of didactic, practical, and immersive simulated scenarios with variable Mankins and circuit physiology models.
ECMO Training and Simulation
At Heartbeat Perfusion Solutions, the ECMO training teams are among the top professionals in the Extracorporeal Community. Quality and patient safety are the core foundations of the company’s services, and trainers are focused on raising the standard of ECMO education from basic to more advanced skills.

ECMO Simulation Book
Comprehensive Healthcare Simulation: ECMO Simulation: A Theoretical and Practical Guide: This book focuses on the technical, cognitive, and behavioral skills needed to implement extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) simulation program. It describes these programs on the individual, team, and hospital system levels, and includes the history of ECMO simulation, its evolution to its current state, and future directions of technology and science related to ECMO simulation.
Divided into six sections, chapters describe both the theoretical as well as practical aspects of ECMO simulation, including a pictorial guide to setting up an ECMO simulation circuit and how to recreate ECMO emergencies. It is a pragmatic guide that emphasizes the necessary practical items and discussions necessary to plan, set up, orchestrate, and debrief ECMO simulations for different types of learners in different
Comprehensive Healthcare Simulation: ECMO Simulation – A Theoretical and Practical Guide is part of the Comprehensive Healthcare Simulation Series, and this book is intended for educators, simulation technologists, and providers involved in ECMO programs who recognize the value of simulation to improve ECMO outcomes.
