Join the learnECMO & GSTT ECMO teams for a cannulation masterclass. GSTT ECMO is one of the highest volume ECMO centres in the world, with a sophisticated, intensivist-led regional ECMO retrieval service. This is an international collaboration and the opportunity to learn from some bonafide experts.

Learn the practical skills required for ultrasound guided VA and VV ECMO cannulation using high fidelity task trainers. The emphasis of the workshop is maximising your time getting the pipes in. We do not expect any prior ECMO experience, enthusiastic beginners are most welcome.
Hands-on experience of optimal USS technique, bifemoral cannulation, femoro-jugular cannulation including the Avalon, distal perfusion cannulas and echo views essential for cannula positioning. The task-trainers will simulate escalating levels of technical difficulty to allow you to hone real-time troubleshooting relevant to real-world ECMO scenarios.
