The University of Iowa ECMO Program is conducting a 4 day comprehensive overview of Adult ECMO. Areas of focus include but are not limited to: patient selection, cannulation and decannulation strategies, patient management including interactive case studies, as well as anticoagulation of the ECMO patient. Supplementing the didactic series are high fidelity simulations where participants are actively caring and managing patients on ECMO through emergency scenarios. We dedicate time to hands-on training with equipment and circuitry components allowing for students to complete circuit changes and/or component change outs. At the conclusion of the course, participants can further test their ECMO knowledge and sit for our specialist exam. This course activity has been approved by the AMA PRA Category 1 Credit ™ as well as the Iowa Board of Nursing.

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.
