Reanimate is a 2 day conference that will teach you everything about Resuscitative ECMO and ECPR. This will include didactic sessions with heavy emphasis acquiring hands-on skills associated with initiation of ECMO:
- Cannulation simulation
- Physiology mannequins
- Pump troubleshooting sessions
- Pump priming simulation
Cardiac Arrest resuscitation simulations
- Team building exercises
You will leave this course ready to initiate ECPR on your next clinical shift!
Our faculty will include some of the brightest minds in all of Resuscitation Medicine. In addition to the EDECMO Crew (Joe Bellezzo, Zack Shinar, and Scott Weingart) we have gathered some of the best teachers of the ECMO world.
Walter Dembitsky is a Cardiothoracic Surgeon who has been doing resuscitative ECMO for 30 years. He is a strong supporter of EP and intensivist initiated ECMO and active speaker on the subject.
David Willms is an intensivist who has published in both VV and VA ECMO and excellent educator on ECMO.
The conference will be held at the UCSD Simulation Training Center in San Diego, California. The Sim Center offers gorgeous classrooms and state of the art simulation capabilities.
The surrounding area is amazing. Torrey Pines golf course and recreation center are a short walk away. Beaches with surfing, volleyball and swimming are also within 3 miles of the Sim Center.
