Excited to be part of this!
I have had the opportunity to work in numerous ERs from Midwest, East coast, and Southern California as an ER nurse and never have I experienced anything as amazing as ECMO being initiated in the ER environment. I'm thrilled to be part of this experience.
really awesome info.
This is amazing stuff. Save lives boys.
