Summary of event
ECMO stands for Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation. Extracorporeal is defined as "outside of the body" and a membrane oxygenator is a piece of equipment which acts as a lung to deliver oxygen into the patient's blood. ECMO is a modified heart-lung machine that does the work of the heart and lungs allowing the organs to rest. This training is for those interested in managing patients requiring ECMO therapy in the acute care setting. Three days of training by Extracorporeal Life Support Organization’s (ELSO) Instructors will feature didactic and hands-on clinical modules based upon the ELSO Standards and Guidelines. Training participants will gain the skills and knowledge necessary for managing the adult populations requiring Veno-Veno (V-V) and Veno-Arterial (V-A) ECMO.
