EPM Talk Ep. 69 – ED ECMO and the future of cardiac arrest: Part 2

No Comments

In part 2 with Zack Shinar from the ED ECMO Podcast, we cover several topics surrounding ECMO.

What is ECMO and why are we doing it? What is Resuscitative ECMO compared to ECPR? What does the literature say about ECPR efficacy? Who should be placed on ECMO? Zack tells us about some of the logistical barriers to starting and improving ECPR programs and so much more!


Most importantly, check out the new book compiled and edited by Zack Shinar and Jenelle Badulak titled “ECPR and Resuscitative ECMO.” This book is a MUST HAVE on your shelf if you are considering ECPR or just want to learn more. It is basic enough that anyone can learn the basics and detailed enough to build the framework for your own ECPR program.
