Chinese Society of Extracorporeal Life Support Congress is focusing on new concepts and techniques of extracorporeal life support. CSECLS will be the official ECLS organization in China, which has been approved to be established by Chinese Medical Doctor Association(CMDA). Many Chinese doctors joining CSECLS are focusing on promoting ECMO practice from many societies including critical care, cardiac surgery, cardiology, respiratory, emergency. They are most well-known professionals on ECMO in China. Through this platform, efforts have been made to optimize or re-survey ECLS in ICU, emergency and other departments to enhance regional collaboration in China.

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 www.procirca.com or contact Melissa Grayson at graysonm@upmc.edu.

CME Staff 1-800-462-9633 cme-jax@mayo.edu
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.
