Advanced EVH


Difficult harvests are part of EVH.  Patient factors, bleeding, equipment malfunctions, even harvester mistakes can get us in trouble.  While complications can be stressful, the worst thing you can do for the conduit (and the patient!) is panic.  The best way to keep calm is to have a solid understanding of the situation and a few creative tricks up your sleeve.

Advanced EVH provides practical tips, tricks, discussion, and demonstration for you to learn the extra skills necessary to always get out of trouble.  Don’t be an average harvester, be the solid advanced harvester your partners call to get them out of trouble.  Satisfaction guaranteed.
