14th Annual Neonatal and Pediatric ECLS Educational Conference Boutique Sessions

Pittsburgh, PA US
October 4, 2023 to October 6, 2023

Welcome to the 14th Annual Neonatal & Pediatric ECLS Educational Conference at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. We dedicate this conference to providing educational opportunities for clinicians caring for children requiring Extracorporeal Life Support (ECLS) therapy including extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and ventricular assist device (VAD) support.
We are excited to have in-person attendance again this year in addition to the virtual platform option.  This hybrid approach allows us to continue to provide one-of-a-kind educational opportunities through interactive high-fidelity simulation activities, interesting case discussions and live "hands-on" training demonstrations.  The virtual component provides increased opportunity to reach those providers that are unable to attend in person.

Our goal is to provide clinicians of all levels a chance to enhance their knowledge of managing pediatric patients requiring ECLS. We are delighted to have you join us and hope that you enjoy this engaging and comprehensive program.

Target Audience

This ECLS educational event is designed for ECMO specialists, pediatric and adult critical care physicians, pediatric and adult surgeons, perfusionists, neonatologists, advanced practice providers, registered nurses and respiratory therapists, and any other professionals interested neonatal and pediatric ECLS.
