50a Inter-facility Transport of ECMO patients Part 1 of 2

This month we are looking at how to transport patients from one facility to another on ECMO.  This is a difficult task, full of potential catastrophes.  Zack interviews Leon Eydelman, an ER/Critical Care physician from Chicago, and Michael Broman out of Karolinska in Sweden.  Leon will be bringing us up to speed on what to do, potential fails, and how to start the process of setting up a transport process for ECMO patients.  Dr. Eydelman will be teaching a new section at Reanimate this January specifically geared toward the transport of patients.  So if you are a nurse, medic, perfusionist, or RT involved in the transport of ECMO patients you will not want to miss Leon's section  Sign up at Reanimateconference.com.  Part 2 of this podcast includes the interview with Dr. Broman which will blow your mind.  So much great stuff in both of these interviews.

Great podcast. Currently work for a rotorwing transport company that transports ECMO with rapidly increasing frequency. Traditionally, we have taken a perfusionist with our RN and Paramedic however recently this became an issue with some perfusionist refusing to go transports or logistical difficulties. We have began transporting certain devices sans perfusonist however still are working out the ongoing education, limitations, and such.
