ECMO is the first reason I could give for why shorter scene times may be superior. Soren, while the cardiologists indeed also typically use the femoral artery for access, the arterial ECMO cannula only extends up to the renal vessels and is typically a smaller caliber cannula than the venous line (the venous flow is the rate-defining catheter and therefore needs to be larger), so both can be present. I look at your questions of ‘field ECMO’ as having two components that need to be addressed. Each fellowship track is two years, in accordance with the ABEM requirements. Spammers probably work for the Joint Commission. Available at [https://emcrit.org/emcrit/ecmo/ ].
