Learn ECMO – Resuscitative ECMO and Cannulation
Join Dr. Sean Scott and the St. Vincent’s ECMO training team on 29th-30th June 2016 for an immersive 2-day training experience, combining all of the fundamentals of resuscitative ECMO. The emphasis is placed on the acquisition of the practical and resource management skills essential to delivering an efficient and safe ECMO CPR service.
Realistic task trainers will allow participants the opportunity to hone the technical components such as bifemoral cannulation, mechanical CPR, transoesophageal echocardiography for cannula placement and ECMO circuit set-up and troubleshooting. The intention is to create real-time technical and logistical difficulties to inform the development of transferable problem solving skills relevant to each of these interventions.
The denouement of the course will be multiple, multi-disciplinary high fidelity simulations taking the patient from ambulance trolley through the decision to proceed to ECMO CPR to exiting the resus bay heading for cardiac catheterization.
The practical sessions are interspersed with the necessary theoretical backing delivered by experts from all critical care specialties, cardiothoracic surgery and perfusion from a centre that is a key protagonist in the 2CHEER study and performs up to 100 ECMO runs per year.
The course is aimed at senior critical care medics and nurses from all subspecialties, and perfusionists. Previous exposure to ECMO is preferential but not essential if you are an experienced practitioner.
