5-Day Comprehensive ECMO Training Program  | ECMO Advantage ExtraCorporeal Education Center, Murfreesboro, TN
01/20/2020 - 01/24/2020
Location: ECMO Advantage ExtraCorporeal Education Center, Murfreesboro, TN
Shanna Seigel, EC2 Coordinator 319-471-1559
This is a true comprehensive course with didactic and high fidelity simulation training designed to teach and reinforce the core knowledge and skillset needed to be an ECMO Specialist (RN, RRT, CCP or MD caring for an ECMO patient). This comprehensive 5-day training course is formatted to provide the educational content suggested by the Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO). ELSO has published suggested “Guidelines for Training and Continuing Education of ECMO Specialists”. This course allows the learner to develop a strong skill set to provide quality care to the patient receiving extracorporeal life support. ELSO Red Book is included in the Registration fee. We have purposely limited number of learners per session to provide the greatest opportunity for hands-on training. All of our 2019 sessions have been filling up so far so sign up early to reserve your spot. See feedback from previous learners at

Deadline: 01/27/2020
Location: Keystone, CO
Guillermo Herrera 325-829-6426
This conference is jointly sponsored by Children’s National, Division of Neonatology and the George Washington University School of Medicine. The conference will address the educational needs of Healthcare Workers involved in care of the neonatal, pediatric, and adult patient in respiratory &/or cardiac failure. Presentations on innovative technologies related to Neonatal, Pediatric, and Adult Extracorporeal Life Support (ECLS), including simulation development, mechanical circulatory support, nitric oxide and ventilation techniques. This symposium will utilize didactic instructions, combined with panel discussions and short research presentations to enhance the audience’s knowledge in the latest treatments of respiratory and/or cardiac failure and pathophysiology of diseases. Outcome data along with limitations and complications of new therapies will also be presented and discussed by experts in the field.

Mayo Clinic Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) Symposium | Mayo Clinic Center for Procedural Innovation Lab, Scottsdale, Arizona
03/27/2020 - 03/28/2020
Deadline: 03/27/2020
Location: Mayo Clinic Center for Procedural Innovation Lab, Scottsdale, Arizona
Elizabeth Adado 480.301.4580
SYMPOSIUM HIGHLIGHTS: *This highly immersive hands-on workshop provides the latest techniques and technology surrounding the clinical use of Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) taught in our most innovative training facility. • Through integrated clinical scenarios, providers will apply knowledge gained towards the initiation and management of ECMO on simulated cases of acute respiratory and hemodynamic failure. • Participants will deepen their understanding of the applied physiology of both venovenous and venoarterial ECMO utilizing the highest fidelity simulation labs and its interaction with conventional life support treatments. • Attendees will continue to build on the ECPR training provided with high intensity hands-on skills sessions including cannulation skills training. • Participants will resuscitate using ECMO, Mechanical Ventilation and Point of Care lab testing while instructors use ultrasound, exhaled CO2 and invasive hemodynamic monitoring to facilitate participant learner visualization of applicable physiologic principles. **NEW Pre-Symposium Webinar - Thursday, March 12, from Noon-1 pm (MST). This complimentary webinar will give participants an opportunity to learn what the ECMO symposium will include and to be able to ask questions before attending. You must be registered for the ECMO symposium to attend the webinar. TARGET AUDIENCE: This course is designed to meet the needs of anesthesiologists, cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, emergency physicians, physician assistants, advanced practice nurses, and all other providers who care for patients in any setting in which critical care is provided.
