The Pacific Pediatric Advanced Care Initiative establishes an advanced care Center with ECLS support in Hawaii to support the Pacific Rim. The Center will advance the science of Pediatric Advanced Care through new basic science and simulation research, while providing advanced care to patients, and improving the education and training of Department of Defense DOD Health Care providers. The Center will be established and evaluated through existing guidelines for clinical care and education and training. The initial research foci for the Center will be the following 1. basic science research in ECMO, 2. development of manikinbased, simulation technologies as applied to the ECLS curriculum, 3. develop ECMOjo, a computer simulation model for patient physiologic variables and ECMO pump biomechanical data.
