Chris Ho and Joe Bellezzo
Chris Ho and Joe Bellezzo are Emergency Physicians at the Sharp Memorial Hospital in San Diego.
Joe is one of the brains behind EDECMO, a website dedicated to raising awareness of the utility of ECLS in the Emergency Department.
Staunch advocates for ECMO CPR, SMACCBack spoke to Joe and Chris after their ‘cage fight’ at SMACC Chicago, debating the controversial topic ‘ECPR is a step too far’.
Chris and Joe gave us a 2 minute introduction to understanding ECMO and ECPR and we discussed the future implications for this increasingly utilised resuscitation resource.
