(Interstate Cannulation)

ECMO Course Logo

The Alfred ECMO Cannulation Training Course is a supplementary day for doctors wanting to perform percutaneous cannulation for ECMO. You can select:

Participants are provided with The Alfred Hospital educational, protocol and point-of-care resources to adapt for use in their own centres. This information is provided in the links supplied below on this page.
The two day course content includes: -didactic lectures, -'hands-on' practical sessions with equipment, -simulation laboratory exercises 

Please note that the course and cannulation Handbook resources will be available for 8 weeks from the course, after which time they will be closed. 

The Cannulation Handbook is made available only to those who have booked to cannulate and can be found below. To access your course materials you will need to visit the ECMO course page and you can do this using the same moodle password simply go back to the Home page and choose the ECMO Course page.

While we endeavour to supply the majority of the lecture material, not all speakers wish to have their work published.  All post course materials are loaded to this site concurrently 3 business days after the course, so if a lecture does not appear on this site then it is unavaliable.  We ask that you refrain from writing to us to request unpublished materials.

For general assistance please contact the administrator Cathy Oswald at 

There are drinks and nibbles for all faculty and registrants at a nearby hotel immediately following the end of Wednesday teaching. The drinks and nibbles are at no cost to registrants so we hope that you will join us.

Certificates of attendance are provided to all. Both the two day ECMO Course and one day Cannulation have been submitted to the College of Intensive Care Medicine (CICM). Both have been awarded three CPD points per hour in Category 3B.
