UPMC Procirca Adult ECLS Boot Camp - Kaiser

December 9, 2019 to December 14, 2019

The UPMC Procirca Adult ECMO Boot Camp designed for health care professionals interested in a foundational education in the care of the adult ECMO patient. The curriculum was designed for the bedside clinician to improve their understanding of ECMO technologies, with an emphasis on practical hands-on simulation training. A blended learning model will combine on-site didactic and simulation training to help clinicians learn to manage and troubleshoot adult ECMO patients. Course content includes lecture on topics ranging from understanding the components of the ECMO circuit, patient selection, cannulation strategies, management of various ECMO patient groups to weaning and decannulation. 

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of the course, learners should be able to:

  • Understand basic principles of ECMO
  • Identify indications and contraindications for ECMO support in the adult patient
  • Have a foundational understanding of the function of the components of the ECMO circuit
  • Understand concerns of managing patients on ECMO
  • Describe complications that may occur while on ECMO support
  • Understand the cannulation, weaning and decannulation of the ECMO patient
  • Respond to the most common ECMO emergencies
  • Demonstrate ECMO knowledge in high fidelity simulation scenarios
