Series Director

Target Audience and Needs

Physicians, residents, fellows, physician assistants, and other health care providers in pediatrics or neonatology need to be regularly updated about evidence-based practices and advances in the identification and clinical management of patients requiring ECMO/iNO therapy or advanced respiratory ventilation, and the ethical dilemmas encountered in the management of these patients. The series aims to increase knowledge of the learners in these topic areas, and to improve their clinical skills and competencies, which will contribute to enhancing the quality of care and improve patient outcomes.

Educational Methods

Educational methods will include lectures and case presentations.


At the conclusion of the sessions, the participants should be able to:

  • Diagnose and treat the underlying disease for patients treated by ECMO or iNO.
  • Analyze and discuss ECMO/iNO problem cases.
  • Examine the ethical and moral dilemmas that accompany the management of patients undergoing ECMO/iNO therapy.
  • Identify which patients would benefit from ECMO or iNO therapy.
  • Complete a written test and demonstrate emergency preparedness skills to an ECMO perfusionist.


Participants may be asked to complete a session evaluation.
