November 2022 Virtual Neonatal/Pediatric ECMO Course


November 30 - December 1, 2022



This intense two-day virtual didactic course has been designed to train multidisciplinary healthcare professionals (RN, MD, CCP, RT) to care for neonatal & pediatric patients with severe respiratory and/or cardiac failure requiring ECMO support. All elements of veno-venous (VV) and veno-arterial (VA) ECMO support will be considered and reviewed. Similar to the amazing benefits experienced at our recent annual meeting, learners will have an incredibly unique experience of learning from global ECMO experts the basics of Neonatal/Pediatric ECMO patient management.


This course will be offered via Zoom with many sessions being broadcasted live to allow for direct student/faculty interaction. All learners should be expected to be present for the course. There will NOT be an option to view later.


TARGET AUDIENCE: This course is appropriate for the entire ECMO team: physicians, nurses, perfusionists, respiratory therapists.


The cost for this course is $1500.00.  For additional information email: [email protected]
