Physician Education Videos

Presentation at 2019 bloodless medicine symposium

Medical professionals from leading institutions across the country and throughout the world have come to Englewood to learn how our physicians use proven, effective alternatives to blood transfusion to improve patient outcomes. The U.S. government, as well as governments of other countries, have consulted with us to learn how to apply blood management techniques in dealing with catastrophic situations when little or no blood is available. As part of our commitment to training and educating healthcare professionals in patient blood management, we invite you to review the lectures below.

If you are an Englewood physician in our bloodless program, after you have viewed sufficient material to satisfy your two-hour yearly agreement, please email nancy.solomon@ehmchealth.org with your name and credentials.
