Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO), in partnership with SCCM, is pleased to announce the Advanced VV-ECMO Workshop for respiratory failure. Led by expert faculty, this two-day workshop covers all elements of managing severe hypoxemic and hypercapnic respiratory failure on VV-ECMO. Topics covered include ventilator management on VV-ECMO, troubleshooting the ECMO circuit, anticoagulation management, awake ambulatory ECMO, ECMO as a bridge to transplant, and the growing role of ECCO2R. Novel and challenging simulation sessions will complement lectures to provide an immersive educational experience. This workshop will take place at the Hyatt Regency Orlando. Registration Rate: $1,950* *ELSO and SCCM members will receive a $200 discount, applied automatically at check-out.

Extracorporeal Life Support in Adult Critical Care: An ELSO Course  | Emory Conference Center Atlanta, GA
04/01/2020 - 04/04/2020
Location: Emory Conference Center Atlanta, GA
Kennethia Banks 734-998-6600 kbb@elso.org
ECMO (Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation) is a complex and intensive mechanical therapy offered to patients with cardio-respiratory failure. This intense four day course is designed to train healthcare professionals to care for patients with severe respiratory or cardiac failure requiring ECMO support. All elements of veno-venous and veno-arterial ECMO support will be considered and reviewed. Course content includes indications and contraindications, cannulation techniques, initiation of support, patient and circuit physiology of ECMO, programmatic design and management, and all aspects of patient management and decision making for patients on ECMO. Complementing the twelve hour didactic course is an eighteen hour high fidelity simulation lab with an ECMO circuit utilizing centrifugal pump technology. In the conference simulation workshop, small groups will participate in scenarios reviewing emergency procedures and highlighting adult ECMO physiology with a learner to instructor ratio of 2:1. Simulation education will allow participants to develop skills in common bedside procedures and to learn key assessments for decision making by "hands on" experience. The course is appropriate for centers setting up new programs or for existing centers expanding into adult services.

Join us in Atlanta for the inaugural ECMO Cannulation Workshop. The ECMO Cannulation Workshop will train physicians to safely perform percutaneous ECMO cannulation. Taught by a ELSO Education Committee using realistic cannulation models. All attendees will learn all aspects of cannulation in a small-group hands-on format. Specific content includes equipment selection, vessel assessment, ultrasound-guided vascular access, serial dilation, and cannula placement and securement. Instructors will emphasize the value of imaging and address complication troubleshooting. At the conclusion of the course participants will be prepared to perform percutaneous veno-venous, veno-arterial, and bi-caval ECMO cannulations at their institution. This is a one day cannulation course being offered on April 5th and 6th. You must select the day you wish to attend on the registration form. Space is limited to only 10 registrants per day and this website will be updated as days fill up.
