Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) is increasingly being used for refractory cardiopulmonary failure and its use in the adult population is gaining attention in clinical practice. The paucity of randomized clinical trials and guidelines has led to significant practice variation when trying to address the challenge of minimizing risk and maximizing benefit. This course provides the necessary framework for management of a patient requiring ECLS through the use of practical case-based scenarios, high-fidelity hands-on simulations, and discussion of current hot topics.

As we enter our fifth year of offering the Current Concepts in ECLS course in Jacksonville, FL, we are excited to announce that the course will be offering a venue to present abstracts from all medical trainees. Abstracts with a main theme of temporary mechanical circulatory support will be the focus. These can be medically challenging cases, case series, or scientific studies. Abstracts will be reviewed by our course directors and decisions regarding acceptance will be made on a rolling basis. The submission deadline for abstracts is now November 4, 2022.

Trainees with accepted abstracts will receive a discounted course fee ($800) that will also include the pre-course TEE workshop.
