This course will focus on comprehensive treatment of cardiogenic shock and respiratory failure and linking regional networks of rural hospitals to large centers of excellence that are equipped to treat all levels of cardiac shock and respiratory failure with team-based, multidisciplinary care and rapidly deployable action.

This course will familiarize attendees with recent technological advances in the field of cardiogenic shock and respiratory failure. The goal of this live seminar is to increase knowledge, competence and performance in the evaluation of heart failure symptoms and cardiac  and respiratory emergencies in the emergency department,  critical care units and operating rooms.  A team approach will be encouraged with physicians, nurses and health professionals learning side by side in this CME course. At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Identify appropriate candidates for ECLS
  • Discuss regional networks - linking rural hospitals to large centers equipped to treat all levels of cardiac and respiratory shock (hub and spoke model)
