The Manual of Clinical Perfusion is the premier clinical perfusion reference manual. This book is a "must have" for every perfusion student and practicing perfusionist in the world. It is written in a straight forward, easy to understand fashion, and it is packed full of useful reference material.
This ELSO training manual is directed at intensivists, surgeons, pediatricians, residents, perfusionists, nurses and ECMO(extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) technologists involved in the care of patients with respiratory or cardiac failure which may require extracorporeal support. It provides specific information on the mechanics of ECMO, the equipment required, the physiology of extracorporeal support, and the management of patients supported on ECMO. Current results of ECMO and alternative support options are also reviewed in some chapters of this book. (Paperback, 2010, 255 pages)
