ECPR: Building a service through simulation

This workshop, hosted by the Intensivists, ED Physicians, and Senior Nursing Team from the Victorian Heart Hospital, will be a hands-on journey through the development of an E-CPR service.

We’ll discuss the many challenges faced in developing and maintaining skills across a multidisciplinary and multispecialty team. We’ll consider E-CPR in the broader context of access to and use of ECMO. Ultimately, we’ll provide a model for using simulation to design, test, and improve your local practice.

The workshop will cover

  • VA ECMO basics
  • Appropriate patient selection for E-CPR
  • Developing a multidisciplinary model for E-CPR
  • Optimising the environment for success

Practical and interactive components

  • Equipment – Options and opportunities
  • Maintaining fidelity in your ED
  • Planning for Success in Simulation
  • Realtime E-CPR simulations

CPD: Educational Activities (EA) – 3.5 hours
