The ECMO Cannulation Workshop will train physicians to safely perform percutaneous ECMO cannulation. Taught by a team of international experts using realistic cannulation models, 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. 20 Registrants per day - This is a one day workshop. Choose September 21st or September 22nd

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. The cost for this course is $3500.00
