60: ECPR 2.0 with Scott Weingart

     We've had some recent episodes on ECMO physiology.  Today's episode focuses on the differences between ECMO physiology in the patient in cardiogenic shock versus the one in cardiac arrest. Scott Weingart talks with Zack about how the difference between these two patient populations is HUGE!  Scott also mentions details about cannulation and some critical post ECMO initiation pearls.

Sometimes I wish Scotty Weingart would just come to my house and cannulate my rectum
