Development and Evaluation of An Abbreviated Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) Course for Nonsurgical Physicians and Nurses
We developed an accelerated 1‐day ECMO course. Clinicians’ confidence and knowledge assessments improved and 88% of teams could successfully initiate venoarterial ECMO after the course.
Sanibel Symposium 2020 Live Webcast with COVID-19 Content
This year's Sanibel Symposium have special focus on COVID-19 with experts from around the world presenting their experiences and suggestions.
Qualification, Knowledge, Tasks and Responsibilities of the Clinical Perfusionist in Germany
The nationwide gap should be closed by joint recommendations regarding the required knowledge, special duties and responsibilities of the clinical perfusionist.
Maximizing the Impact of Surgical Health Services Research The Methodology Toolbox
This series will help with research and eventually helps our profession and most of all, the patients we serve.
Use of Augmented Reality to Assist Teaching for Future Perfusionists in Extracorporeal Technology
Unlike other computing technologies, AR interfaces offer seamless interaction between the real and virtual worlds, a tangible interface metaphor, and a means for transitioning between real and virtual worlds. Here, we have shown our experiences of cost-effective AR technology for future perfusionists.
Escape Into Patient Ssafety: Bringing Human Factors to Life for Medical Students
More thorough evaluation of larger pilots is recommended to continue exploring the effectiveness of escape rooms as a teaching method.
Perioperative THR-184 and AKI after Cardiac Surgery
AKI after cardiac surgery is associated with mortality, prolonged hospital length of stay, use of dialysis, and subsequent CKD. We evaluated the effects of THR-184, a bone morphogenetic protein-7 agonist, in patients at high risk for AKI after cardiac surgery.
Acute Kidney Injury After Cardiac Surgery: Prevalence, Impact and Management Challenges
In this review, we explore the definition of cardiac surgery-associated acute kidney injury (CSA-AKI) and identify diverse mechanisms and risk factors contributing to the renal insult.
A Pilot Goal-Directed Perfusion Initiative Is Associated With Less Acute Kidney Injury After Cardiac Surgery
We sought to determine whether a pilot goal-directed perfusion initiative could reduce the incidence of acute kidney injury after cardiac surgery.
