MGH Short-Term Mechanical Support Heart/Lung Symposium 2019

Boston, MA US

This course involves didactic lectures supplemented by hands-on training in the wet/animal lab. Interactive online/direct discussions/questions are provided. Lectures primarily involve presentation of scientific data relevant to ECLS. Case presentations will allow attendees to participate and get the input and perspective of other disciplines.

There will be multidisciplinary educational teams in the wet/animal lab. Each team will be devoted to a specific type of support (Impella, Tandem Heart, ECMO, C-Mag, IABP). ECMO hands-on cannulation/initiation and decannulation will be taught on swine animal lab.  Scenarios will address the fundamentals of such devices as well as common and uncommon complications and challenges through the entire perioperative period including planning for surgery and preoperative evaluation, interoperative management, and postoperative critical care issues.
