ECMO | Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation

Non-ELSO Meetings & Events

Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO) does not sponsor these events, but they are important to the broader ECMO and ECLS community, so we list them here.

This course is intended for physicians (intensivists, surgeons etc), nurses, perfusionists and other health care professionals, who either work in an ECMO program or who are in the process of starting one. The course will be conducted by the faculty of the ECMO Center at Karolinska. It will include simulations of ecmo patients, practical training in managing the ECMO circuit with change of different components etc, computer simulations of physiology and didactic lectures. Simulations and practical training will be performed in small groups of 6 participants together with one or two instructors. The lectures will cover subjects like components of the ECMO circuit, indications for ECMO, contraindications, managing the patient on ECMO, cannulation strategy, physiology, anticoagulation, troubleshooting etc. The number of participants is maximized to 24. Besides of the course the registration fee (22 000 SEK) will cover lunches, coffee and one dinner. After having completed the course, the participants will have increased both their theoretical knowledge and their practical skills in managing adult patients on ECMO for respiratory failure and septic shock.

Pediatric Paracorporeal and Extracorporeal Therapies Summit 2022

Location: Virtual event hosted by Texas Children's Hospital

10/17/2022 - 10/18/2022

Pediatric paracorporeal and extracorporeal therapies (PPET) are increasingly applied to support children with multiple organ failure (MOF). These highly complex, resource intensive technologies lie at the interface of innovation and the highest complexity clinical care; in patients with MOF, multiple treatment modalities are frequently used simultaneously. However, lack of clinical guidelines or consensus statements to guide PPET use result in a lack of standardization of practice, compounded by limited dialogue between experts and institutions regarding PPET use, in particular in the application of multiple PPET modalities. The PPET Summit 2022 will transform these critical gaps into knowledge and research opportunities by bringing together, for the first time, pediatric and adult experts from across the globe in the fields of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, ventricular assist device, renal replacement therapy, extracorporeal liver support, and apheresis. The Summit will bring together local and international experts to define the current status of PPET, including the role of hybrid and tandem therapies; standardize current approaches; identify key knowledge gaps that need to be addressed to facilitate optimal patient care, and set a collaborative research and quality agenda to improve our understanding of PPET. This will provide an exciting and much needed framework to optimize the care of these patients and improve their outcomes.
