Location: Childrens Medical Center Dallas, Texas
Donna Taylor 214 456-8445
This instructive 3 day course is designed for physicians and ECMO specialists caring for patients with severe acute respiratory and cardiac failure who receive Extracorporeal Life support (ECLS). The course will be conducted as per ELSO guidelines under the guidance of internationally recognized ECLS experts Dr.Heidi Dalton, Tom Preston, CCP in collaboration with local faculty at Children’s Medical Center of Dallas and University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Course content will include ECMO indications and contraindications, ECMO patient and circuit physiology, cannulation techniques, anticoagulation and other aspects of ECMO patient care and management. The course will have 12 hours of didactics and 9hours of small group simulation (hands-on and fundamental review), and also instruction on topics such as circuit check, equipment components, alarms, pressure monitoring, circuit entry, de-airing the circuit, connecting CVVH and plasmapheresis circuits and hand cranking the pump. The course will utilize clinical case scenarios, faculty and educator guidance and technological resources to facilitate team training and clinical critical thinking and decision making. The course is appropriate for centers new to ECMO or those wanting to expand their expertise in neonatal, pediatric and adult ECMO care.

Mayo Clinic Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) Workshop 2017 | Mayo Clinic, Center for Procedural Innovation, Scottsdale, Arizona
04/04/2017 - 04/05/2017
Deadline: Register early - limited availability!
Location: Mayo Clinic, Center for Procedural Innovation, Scottsdale, Arizona
CME Staff 480-301-4580
Mayo Clinic in Arizona is pleased to extend a highly immersive 2-day workshop for managing Adult Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation. Unique high fidelity simulations and hands-on labs integrate ECMO, mechanical ventilation, ultrasound and hemodynamics monitoring techniques required for optimal patient management. In addition to learning ECMO guidelines, learners will deepen their understanding of venovenous and venoarterial ECMO physiology. By incorporating the latest techniques and technologies, this workshop is intended to advance one’s knowledge and judgement in initiating, monitoring, and managing ECMO. To optimize the learner to instructor ratio, workshop size is limited.

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
10/28/2017 - 10/29/2017
Location: J. Wayne and Delores Barr Weaver Simulation Center, Jacksonville, FL
CME Staff 1-800-462-9633
The extra corporeal life support system as rescue therapy for refractory cardiopulmonary failure is increasingly gaining attention in clinical practices. The challenge of this system is how to best utilize it to get the maximum benefits. In the absence of randomized clinical trials and guidelines practice varies widely. Mayo Clinic's course is aimed at practical case based management for the current commonly used indications for life support. Also, it is aimed for refinement of practices for future uniform growth of the system at a national and international level.
