ECMO Cannulation Workshop

ELSO Office
3001 Miller Rd, Ann Arbor, MI 48103

November 12 and 13, 2023.

Join us in Ann Arbor for our ECMO Cannulation Workshop.

The target audience of the ELSO Cannulation Workshop is intensivists, cardiologists, surgeons and emergency physicians who wish to learn percutaneous ECMO cannulation. Taught by a team of international experts using realistic simulators, attendees will learn all aspects of cannulation in a hands-on setting. Each group of students will have 2 – 3 instructors to ensure individualized attention and all students will perform each specific cannulation procedure from start to finish. Specific content includes equipment selection, vessel assessment, ultrasound-guided vascular access, serial dilation, and cannula placement and securement. Instructors will emphasize the value of imaging and address complication troubleshooting. At the conclusion of the course participants will be prepared to perform percutaneous veno-venous, veno-arterial, and bi-caval ECMO cannulations at their institution.

This is a one day cannulation course.  On the registration page as dates become available you must select for which day you wish to attend.  Space is limited to only 15 registrants per day and this website will be updated as days fill up.

Course runs from 8 AM to 5 PM.
