Explore the basic management principles common to extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) programs for both adult and pediatric patients with the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s (SCCM) ECMO Management course.
Led by expert faculty, this intense two-day simulation course will provide a comprehensive overview of ECMO programs. Participants will rotate through lectures and simulation scenarios. Each simulation group will have a maximum of 10 participants and two facilitators.
- Identify the different components of the ECMO circuit and diagnose equipment malfunction
- Determine the optimal ECMO settings in diseases commonly treated by ECMO
- Recognize and manage the most common ECMO emergencies
This course will be held August 28 and 29, 2015, at the University of Arizona Center for Simulation and Innovation in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.
