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. Panel discussions with ECMO experts from UPMC will allow for exploration of 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 ™. 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 .

This comprehensive 5-day training course is designed to train clinicians for their role as an ECMO Specialist. Our 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”. These guidelines provide a framework governing structure, content, evaluation and on-going training requirements essentially outlining standards that can be used by organizations training clinicians to function as ECMO Specialists. Adherence to and building upon these concepts ensure that a solid knowledge base is established. When partnered with hands-on and/or simulation training the learner develops a strong skill set to provide quality care to the patient receiving extracorporeal life support. Registration for this course is only $3200. EarlyBird and Large Group discounts can be applied to provide additional value. See feedback from previous learners at ECMO Advantage offers courses each month of the year. We also provide custom training to fit your institutional or individual requirements.

This symposium is designed as a two-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.
