LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Discuss the challenges in managing systemic hemodynamics to ensure cerebral oxygen supply –demand balance postoperatively in ECMO patients
  • Discuss NIRS technology – what the value means, and how to interpret it
  • Highlight clinical applications and best practices of NIRS monitoring in ECMO patients

DESCRIPTION:
With the rapidly growing ageing population, patients admitted for cardiac surgery are typically older with more co-morbidities and higher peri-operative and post-operative complication risks1-6. In recent years, there has been a wider use of Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) in critical care situations7. In this webinar, Dr. Khanna will be discussing the challenges clinicians face to ensure that there is cerebral oxygen supply-demand balance in ECMO patients to reduce complications. Clinical applications as well as best practices of Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) monitoring will also be discussed. 
This webinar is designed for all clinicians wishing to update their scientific knowledge on this topic.
A live question and answer session with Dr. Khanna will follow the webinar.  

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
Cardiologists, Thoraco-cardiovascular surgeons, Intensivists, Anesthesiologists, Cardiology residents, Thoraco-Cardiovascular Surgery residents,  Fellows in training, Anesthesiology residents, Nurses, Medical officers, Perfusionists
