ECMO Symposium: Optimizing Patient Outcomes, Elevating Excellence in ECMO

Friday, May 3, 2024

Conference starts in:

The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center - Columbus, OH
1 Day Conference May 3rd, 2024
6.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit Hours


Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) continues to be a limited resource, mostly available at tertiary care centers, usually located in the metropolitan areas. As experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic, many centers now realize the benefits and need for availably of ECLS for their patient populations. However, providing such therapy is dependent on highly skilled professionals. The knowledge and skills required are also frequently changing, especially as new lessons learned, as occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic. In result, there is a professional practice gap in basics of ECMO support, but also in awareness of the new evidence that emerged during the global health emergency.

Fees will be waived for faculty and staff of The Ohio State University when using the PROMO CODE: ECMO24.  NOTE: The application of this PROMO CODE is restricted to qualified email addresses.
