Amid safety concerns with COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to postpone this course.  We are working with the course directors and UT Southwestern Simulation Center to establish new dates and finalize the logistics of moving your registrations to the new course dates.

We apologize for this inconvenience and look forward to having you all in our course with the new dates. If you have additional questions or concerns,  you can contact Ericka.harden-dews@utsouthwestern.edu.

This course will include indications and contraindications for ECMO, patient and ECMO circuit physiology, cannulation techniques, anticoagulation, and other aspects of ECMO patient care and management. There will be  12 hours of didactics and 9 hours of small group hands-on simulation sessions to provide instruction on topics such as ECMO circuit check, alarms, pressure monitoring, how to connect CVVH and plasmapheresis circuits to the ECMO circuit. We will also utilize clinical case scenarios, and technological resources to facilitate team training and clinical critical thinking and decision making. The course is appropriate for centers new to ECMO or those wanting to expand their expertise in neonatal, pediatric and adult ECMO.
