Clinical Reasoning Simplified.

An innovative clinical education experience for professionals who care for and assist with the mobilization of patients requiring ECMO support

You won’t just hear the information, you SEE it, FEEL it, and EXPERIENCE it.

We’ve created an ECMO clinical education experience that pairs lecture-based learning with a realistic clinical environment… complete with all the tangled lines and tubes, alarming IV pumps, and most importantly the PATIENT!

Let us simplify the gray of clinical practice!

Core Competencies of Physical Therapy​:

Integrity, Professional Duty, Social Responsibility, Excellence, Compassion/Caring, Accountability, Altruism

Here’s What to Expect

2 days. Hands-on learning. A safe place to learn, ask questions, and make mistakes! The goal is to prepare you to provide the highest level of care for your patients.

Day 1: Lectures from ECMO Advantage Specialist team

Highly skilled and experienced ECMO and Physical Therapy staff provide all the information you need to safely manage the complex patient population supported on ECMO.

Day 2: State of the art High Fidelity Simulation Training

There will be plenty of time for individual practice.

Hi, I’m Erica, PT and Board-Certified Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Specialist

Erica Colclough, PT and Board-Certified Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Specialist
I’ve been a physical therapist practicing in the controlled chaos of the intensive care setting for over 15 years.

When I started practicing in the intensive care setting, I couldn’t make heads or tails of tangled lines/tubes or decipher the alphabet-soup that filled the conversations around me. Despite first impressions, I ABSOLUTELY fell in love with the setting, team, and patient population.

My passion now is to empower clinicians to detangle the lines/tubes, translate the medical gobble goo, and function confidently in the controlled chaos of the intensive care setting.

Are you a clinical institution interested in onsite continued education for your physical and occupational therapy staff?
