Vanderbilt University Medical Center; Department of CV Surgery: Faculty Forum
Update on ECMO for COVID-19: What have we learned?
Faculty: J. Hoffman, MD, Matt Warhoover, CCP, A. Lepore, CCP
Tammy Sparacino Journal Club:
Early experience of pump-controlled retrograde trial off for weaning from veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA ECMO) in adult patients with cardiogenic shock.
Pump-controlled retrograde trial off has recently been introduced as an effective method for weaning from veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in pediatric patients.
However, studies on pump-controlled retrograde trial off in adults are still lacking. Thus, this study aimed to examine the outcomes of pump-controlled retrograde trial off for weaning from veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in adult patients.
John Ingram Knowledge Nuggets:
Recombinant Activated Human Factor VII
Welcome to another insightful episode in our ever-growing library of educational webinars. This installment is a collaboration with Vanderbilt University Medical Center's Department of CV Surgery and offers a wealth of information, expertise, and perspectives on ECMO in the context of COVID-19. Hosted by Joe Basha, this video is segmented into a faculty forum, a journal club presentation, and a section on knowledge nuggets.
The primary aims of this webinar include:
- Providing an updated overview of ECMO (Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation) as it relates to COVID-19.
- Discussing the early experiences and outcomes of pump-controlled retrograde trial off for weaning from V-A ECMO in adult patients.
- Delving into the role and efficacy of Recombinant Activated Human Factor VII.
Faculty Forum: "Update on ECMO for COVID-19: What have we learned?"
Presented by J. Hoffman, MD, Matt Warhoover, CCP, and A. Lepore, CCP, this segment aims to answer the pressing question—what have we learned about ECMO in the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic? The faculty addresses the current state of knowledge, best practices, and challenges that lie ahead.
Tammy Sparacino Journal Club: "Early experience of pump-controlled retrograde trial off for weaning from V-A ECMO in adult patients"
Tammy Sparacino dives into the topic of pump-controlled retrograde trial off, a weaning method recently introduced for pediatric patients on V-A ECMO. The presentation critically examines its potential applicability and outcomes in adult patients.
John Ingram Knowledge Nuggets: "Recombinant Activated Human Factor VII"
John Ingram caps off the webinar with "Knowledge Nuggets," focusing on the role of Recombinant Activated Human Factor VII. This segment aims to equip viewers with bite-sized yet potent insights into this specialized coagulation factor and its implications.
