This highly immersive hands-on workshop provides the latest techniques and technology surrounding the clinical use of Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO).  Through integrated clinical scenarios providers will apply the knowledge gained towards the initiation and management of ECMO on simulated cases of acute respiratory and hemodynamic failure. Participants will deepen their understanding of the applied physiology of both venovenous and venoarterial ECMO utilizing the highest fidelity simulation labs and its interaction with conventional life support treatments. Attendees will continue to build on the ECPR training provided with high intensity hands-on skills sessions. Participants will resuscitate using ECMO, Mechanical Ventilation and Point of Care lab testing while instructors use ultrasound, exhaled CO2 and invasive hemodynamic monitoring to facilitate learner visualization of applicable physiologic principles.
