Learning objective: This workshop will outline the basic principles of extracorporeal life support made easy by key-experts in the field. During the course delegates will gain a good understanding of ECMO in the following areas: Theoretical concepts, basic physiology and pathophysiology, cardiac and respiratory support and monitoring, alarm settings and monitoring, role of cardiac ultrasound during ECMO, newest technologies, circuits and devices, practical hands-on sessions and simulations.
Background: The BEACH programme provides a full-day, interactive course on Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) training. The course uses a variation of theoretical presentations, practical and simulation sessions presented by an international faculty. It is the only course in Belgium to be endorsed by the International Fluid Academy and has also been accredited by the EACCME for 9 points. The course is inclusive of all course materials, food and drinks at the Hilton Congress and Conference Centre, Groenplaats in Antwerp, Belgium. Delegates will have opportunity to meet, greet and ask questions regarding all topics presented.
Hands-on ECMO equipment training
Delegates will have the opportunity to have hands-on training in small break-out groups with ECMO equipment. Delegates will experience practicing insertion of cannulas on a mannekin, circuit surveillance, monitoring, alarm settings, simulations and trouble-shooting.
The course is made available via Unrestricted Educational Grants from Getinge and Xenios
