The symposium will explore both common and unique applications for adult ECMO including reversible respiratory failure, cardiogenic shock, pulmonary embolism, trauma, sepsis, pregnancy, ECPR and organ procurement. Early recognition, implementation and basic management principles will be discussed. The comprehensive one-day symposium will cover a wide range of topics including case scenarios featuring: VA ECMO, VV ECMO, Medical optimization prior to ECMO, Ventilator management on ECMO, Hemodynamics on ECMO, ECMO transport, Ethics in ECMO Please join the GW Center for Extracorporeal Life Support Team for an informative and exciting day of the adult ECMO education.

ECMO symposium - extending our reach | King's College Hospital, London, UK
10/16/2017 - 10/16/2017
Deadline: Early bird rate for first 40 tickets - no deadline
Location: King's College Hospital, London, UK
Dr. Robert Loveridge + 44 7831 618333
This symposium seeks to better understand the more unusual indications for ECMO in adults and adolescents. With a focus on liver failure and transplantation, haematological disease, and cardiac disease especially within the UK setting, national and international speakers have been brought together to help open up the debate about widening the role of ECMO in sub-specialist populations.

UPMC Procirca Adult ECMO Training Course | UPMC, Procirca Perfusion Simulation and Education Center, Pittsburgh, PA
10/18/2017 - 10/21/2017
Location: UPMC, Procirca Perfusion Simulation and Education Center, Pittsburgh, PA
Melissa Grayson 412-623-0044
The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) Procirca Comprehensive Adult ECMO Training Course is a 3.5 day course designed for health care professionals interested in a foundational education in the care of the adult ECMO patient. Course content includes lecture on topics ranging from understanding the components of the ECMO circuit, patient selection, cannulation strategies and management of various ECMO patient groups to weaning and decannulation. ECMO experts from UPMC will discuss topics covering complex patient management as well as the more practical concerns related to creating and maintaining a successful ECMO program, including billing and reimbursement. Lecture will be supported with simulation based learning, including ECMO circuit basics, an interactive ECMO cannulation model, handling ECMO emergencies, ECMO transport and high fidelity case simulation scenarios to help develop patient management and troubleshooting skills. Hands on time with multiple ECMO systems will be available. This activity has been approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s) ™. Course registration is $2750, and includes the ELSO “Red Book” and ECMO Specialist Training Manual. For more information or to register visit or contact Melissa Grayson at The University of Pittsburgh is an affirmative action, equal opportunity institution. **Limited seats are still available for the Adult ECMO Training Course May 10-13, 2017**

Mayo Clinic's Current Concepts in the Management of the Adult ECMO Patient | J. Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver Simulation Center, Jacksonville, FL
10/27/2017 - 10/28/2017
Location: J. Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver Simulation Center, Jacksonville, FL
CME Staff 1-800-462-9633
This course takes advantage of modern educational concepts to provide clinically relevant material through realistic scenarios and simulation on ECMO initiation, management and removal. This highly interactive approach puts the learner in the position of the clinician needing to make simple thorough complex decisions commonly faced when providing ECMO. There will be limited traditional didactic presentations and a greater emphasis on interactive learning in small groups using accelerated scenarios around specific topics. Hands-on simulation will be used to expose the learner to a range of typical management issues and ECMO emergencies. For both novice and experienced ECMO care givers, the course will provide an exceptional learning environment for solid ECLS concepts and energize ECMO providers to offer state-of-the-art lifesaving opportunities for critically ill patients.
