The STS/ELSO ECMO Management Symposium is designed to provide an in-depth review of contemporary extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). As the number of patients requiring ECMO increases, so does the need for ongoing ECMO training for cardiothoracic surgeons and multidisciplinary intensive care teams. Symposium topics will include patient selection, initiation and separation of support, and patient and circuit management, as well as management of ECMO emergencies. Participants will experience several hours of high-fidelity simulation and extensive hands-on training.
This course is targeted toward surgeons, intensive care specialists, perfusionists, nurses, respiratory therapists, advanced practice providers, and other health care team members who are involved in the care for patients who require ECMO. The course is appropriate for both experienced and novice ECMO providers.
After participating in this educational activity, participants should be able to:
- Identify appropriate candidates for ECMO
- Discuss indications for venoarterial and venovenous ECMO
- Describe ECMO cannulation techniques and discuss equipment options
- Recognize and manage ECMO emergencies
Location & Hotel
