The STS/ELSO ECMO Management Symposium is a 2.5-day educational activity designed to give participants an in-depth review of contemporary extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). An increasing number of surgeons and intensive care specialists require advanced ECMO training to provide state-of-the-art care for patients who require ECMO. Course topics will include patient selection, initiation and separation of support, and patient and circuit management, as well as management of ECMO emergencies and extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The course will feature several hours of high-fidelity simulation, providing participants with extensive hands-on training. The course is appropriate for both experienced and novice ECMO providers.

After participating in this educational activity, participants should be able to:
•    Identify appropriate candidates for ECMO
•    Discuss indications for venoarterial and venovenous ECMO
•    Perform ECMO cannulation techniques and discuss equipment options
•    Recognize and manage ECMO emergencies
