ECMO Simulation in Pediatrics: IPSS Webinar TOMORROW March 22nd 17:00 GMT
Our friends at the International Pediatric Simulation Society are putting on another great webinar tomorrow with champions from Yale. If you can’t make tomorrow you can check out all their previous awesome webinars here! Are you looking for an ECMO simulator? Check out the EigenFlow from CLR!
Title: Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygen Simulation in Pediatrics: Establishing the Current State & Defining the Path Ahead
Time: Tomorrow 22 March 2016 – 17:00 GMT (13:00 EDT)
Discuss the current prevalence and characteristics of ECMO simulation being performed amongst the community of pediatric simulationists and ECMO providers.
- Contrast various methods of interfacing a simulation manikin with an ECMO circuit, using high- and low-fidelity techniques, and the benefits and deficiencies of each.
Describe current plans to develop standardized training materials for ECMO simulation through an interprofessional, international collaboration of simulation and ECMO providers.
Lindsay C. Johnston, MD, MEd is currently an attending neonatologist at Yale University, after having completed Pediatrics residency at the University of Pittsburgh and fellowship in Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. She has directed Yale-New Haven Children’s Hospital’s interprofessional ECMO simulation program for the pediatric ECMO team since 2010. She has published several articles and presented information about this program at numerous international meetings. Lindsay has been leading efforts through the IPSS, in collaboration with ELSO, to provide instructional materials and tools for the pediatric simulation community. A recent graduate of the University of Cincinnati with a Masters Degree in Medical Education, Lindsay is interested in assessment of competency, and would like to apply this to assess the efficacy of ECMO simulation training in the future.
