Comments: CLOSED. This 2-day comprehensive course provides a deep understanding of adult ECMO with lecture and state of the art high-fidelity simulation training. The course covers basic and advanced understanding of Veno-arterial ECMO (VA-ECMO), Veno-venous ECMO (V-V ECMO), Veno-arterial-venous ECMO (VAV ECMO), Extracorporeal Carbon Dioxide Removal (ECCO2R), and Right Ventricular assist device ECMO (RVAD ECMO). Learn patient selection, cannulation techniques, anticoagulation, management, and weaning. Basic physics, physiology, and hemodynamics as pertaining to the ECMO patients are discussed. Circuit build and management are covered in the didactic and simulation scenarios. Training provides interactive learning through case scenarios, teamwork, and debriefing. The simulation lab includes multiple stations with realtime hemodynamic changes, various configurations and effects, realistic circulation, and radiographic cannula placement capability. Attendees learn how to provide safe, successful care while managing a patient with the single provider or specialist model. Topics include best practices, program development and financial impacts. The target audiences are cardiac surgeons, intensivists, pulmonologists, cardiologists, critical care nurses, respiratory therapists, advanced practitioners and perfusionists. Multidisciplinary course instructors include a cardiac surgeon, an ECMO specialist, and a perfusionist whose combined experience spans over four decades in ECMO. ELSO “Redbook” is included with course registration. Space is limited to provide individualized learning experiences. For more information and registration, please go to https://www.mechlife.org or call 443-441-1401 Register before June 20, 2019 and receive a special rate of $1600. Regular rate is $1900.

This symposium is designed as a three-day educational program with a series of lectures on adult extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). The symposium will also offer the opportunity for hands-on training on extracorporeal life support technique to support cardiac and respiratory patients whose heart and lungs are unable to provide an adequate amount of gas exchange to sustain life. Subject experts will present insights into the technical aspects of the use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation along with risks, benefits, and outcomes. Best practices in medical and nursing management of the ECMO patients along with howperfusion can empower nursing to manage ECMO patients in the critical care setting will be discussed. This activity has been designed for cardiovascular, pulmonary, critical care and anesthesia physicians, surgeons, perfusionists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, respiratory therapists, nurses, fellows, residents and other healthcare professionals who want to enhance their extracorporeal membrane oxygenation knowledge.
