50b Inter-Facility Transport of ECMO patients Part 2 of 2

This is part 2 of Transport of ECMO patients.  Mikael Broman is one of the world's leaders on ECMO transport.  He works at the Karolinska institute in Sweden and ha

s and continues to publish in the arena of ECMO transport.  As you will see, he offers a world of experience and certainly some critical information that we would all benefit from listening to.  I'm a smarter ECMO-tologist as a result of Micke!1234

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.
