ECMO: The Patient Journey

Lots of ICU colleagues will have sent patients off for ECMO, though have limited sight into what that patient and the colleagues that treat them go through. This study day will therefore intend to take delegates through the whole ECMO journey, right from when the patient gets unwell, right through to when the patient comes back into clinic, 1-2 years later to talk about their experience.
