About the society

The ECMO Society of South Africa was born out of the determination of a group of passionate professionals wanting to expand and extend the knowledge, understanding and training of ECMO practices both within the medical community and to the general public.


A platform where like-minded individuals can collaborate and share their experiences with the opportunity to seek support and advise from colleagues across the country. To obtain resources and support for not only themselves but that of their staff, patients and patient families. 


The ECMO Society of South Africa is recognised as the accreditation body for ECMO across South Africa . All ECMO Centres are required to obtain accreditation via the ECMO Society.
