Short Term Mechanical Support Heart and Lung Symposium 2023

Boston, MA US
March 13, 2023

Monday, March 13, 2023

8:00am - 5:00pm

Livestream


This course provides interactive didactic lectures and video demonstration of management approaches in the multidisciplinary care of patients with acute heart and lung failure. While there are other CME courses offered at regional academic centers, no center offers an integrated course on heart and lung support.

Our Short-term MCS course brings together a uniquely multidisciplinary panel of speakers, not only including cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons and pulmonologists, but also respiratory therapists, nurses and palliative care physicians. The course faculty reflects the complexity of care for patients with acute heart and lung failure and illustrates how a team of diverse providers work together to address challenges to improve quality of care.

Target Audience

This activity is intended for physicians, nurses, and physician assistants in Anesthesiology, Cardiac Surgery, Cardiology, Critical Care, Hospice and Palliative Care, Internal Medicine, Interventional Cardiology, Pulmonary Disease.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe an Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) circuit including pumps, filters, tubing, safety monitors, oxygenators, heating and cooling elements, and different variations in the set up.
  2. Recognize and explain the different types of cannulae and cannulation strategies for ECMO.
  3. Recognize and manage cardiogenic shock.
  4. Identify and manage acute lung failure.
  5. Recognize the indications for TCS devices (heart pumps, cannula devices, and ECMO).
  6. Diagnose and manage common complications associated with ECMO and other TCS devices.
  7. Interpret hemodynamic data for patients with short-term support.
  8. Evaluate and manage weaning from ECMO and other short term support.
  9. Demonstrate the importance of involving Palliative Care and Ethics in the management of acute heart and lung failure.
  10. Describe the steps in building a multidisciplinary team.
  11. Describe physical therapy strategies to mobilize and “pre-hab” patients on short term support while waiting for heart and lung transplant.
  12. Describe the role of heart transplant and durable mechanical circulatory support in the care of patients with cardiogenic shock.
  13. Determine the latest development of heart and lung support devices in the pipeline.
