ECMO Training Course

ECMO Banner

The two-day course is designed for physicians and specialists caring for adult patients with severe acute cardiac failure and/or respiratory failure who may be candidates for Extracorporeal Life Support (ECLS). The course will consist of a combined nine hours of didactic lecture, ending with panel discussion and five hours of high fidelity simulation lab with an ECMO circuit.

Next Training: Thursday, June 9 from 1-8 p.m. and Friday, June 10 from 1:30-6 p.m.

Cost: $500 for both days or $150 for day one only (does not include CME credits)

Day 1 Location: Health Education Building, Room 100, UT Health Science Campus

Day 2 Location: Lloyd A. Jacobs Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center, UT Health Science Campus

All learners will participate in our first day of ECMO essentials. Day 1 is intended for those who want more in-depth understanding of ECMO. Content includes:

  • Indications and contraindications
  • Cannulation techniques;
  • Initiation of support;
  • Patient and circuit physiology of ECMO;
  • Programmatic design and management; and
  • All aspects of patient management and decision making for patients on ECMO.

Those who provide bedside care can join us for Day 2. During conference simulation workshops offered day two, small groups will participate in scenarios reviewing emergency procedures and highlighting adult ECMO physiology. Simulation education will allow participants to develop skills in common bedside procedures and learn key assessments for decision-making through "hands-on" experience.

Objectives of the Program

  • Learners will review research and identify potential candidates for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.
  • Learners will clearly define roles of each health care professional and the importance of interdisciplinary teamwork for best outcomes.
  • Learners will identify the role of ECLS in the treatment of critically ill patients.
  • Learners will identify potential areas for process improvement within the ECLS program.
  • Learners will be able to differentiate between VA and VV ECMO while verbalizing indications for each.
