VV ECMO Strategies for COVID-19, A Single Center Experience

While the initial COVID surge in NYC brought many unexpected challenges, it also provided unique opportunity. The pandemic opened a window to explore the limits of medical therapy for a devastating disease, compelling many to test the limits of ECMO as a tool to help the sickest patients. Through team-work and dedication excellent outcomes can be achieved, and adoption of some of these practices may help the next wave of patients. Topics covered in this webinar to include patient selection and management, cannulation preference, extracorporeal circuit design, staffing models and personal protective equipment.
