Novalung® On Demand Webinar

Management and Mobilization of Veno-venous ECMO Patients

Building a successful ECMO program often means understanding acute respiratory failure and the use of ECMO to support patients with complex or multiple comorbidities. Do you ambulate or mobilize your ECMO patients with this or other complex conditions? If you want to learn more about options during veno-venous ECMO, please join Dr. Jason Wells as he shares his experiences supporting patients with ARDS and COVID-19 while identifying mobilization strategies that can be easily implemented by healthcare professionals and could be beneficial for the patient. Live Q&A session to follow.

Register to watch this 45 minute webinar and you will learn about:

  • Acute respiratory failure
  • Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation or ECMO
  • Veno-venous support during COVID-19
  • Portable technologies for extracorporeal life support (ECLS)
  • Complications during ECLS 
  • Mobilization strategies during ECMO

The Novalung System is indicated for long-term (>6 hours) respiratory/cardiopulmonary support that provides assisted extracorporeal circulation and physiologic gas exchange (oxygenation and CO2 removal) of the patient’s blood in adults with acute respiratory failure or acute cardiopulmonary failure, where other available treatment options have failed, and continued clinical deterioration is expected or the risk of death is imminent. These may include:

  • Failure to wean from cardiopulmonary bypass following cardiac surgery in adult patients
  • ECMO-assisted cardiopulmonary resuscitation in adults
