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 May 15th, 16th, and 17th. On the registration form you must select for which day you wish to attend. Space is limited to only 10 registrants per day and this website will be updated as days fill up.
