Extracorporeal Life Support Organization
The Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO) is an international non-profit consortium of health care institutions who are dedicated to the development and evaluation of novel therapies for support of failing organ systems. Crucial is the promotion of a broad multidisciplinary collaboration.
The primary mission of the Organization is to maintain a registry of use of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in active ELSO centers. As appropriate, registries of other novel forms of organ system support are within the purview of ELSO. Registry data is to be used to support clinical research, support regulatory agencies, and support individual ELSO centers. ELSO provides educational programs for active centers as well as for the broader medical and lay communities
EuroELSO is the European branch of the Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (ELSO) established in Ann Arbor, MI, USA in 1989. Our goal is to join all the European health care professionals and scientists who are dedicated to the development and evaluation of novel therapies for support of failing organ systems with extracorporeal life support. EuroELSO also provides educational programs for active centers as well as for the broader medical and lay communities.
TCS-ECMO International Conference
TCS ECMO will feature the latest evidence on temporary organ support devices for advanced cardiac and respiratory failure. A specific congress track will be dedicated to Temporary Circulatory Support (TCS) devices, that are increasingly used by interventional cardiologists to treat cardiogenic shock due to acute myocardial infarction and end-stage cardiac failure. The congress will also provide state-of–the-art discussions on the indications and results of extracorporeal gas exchange techniques (venovenous ECMO and ECCO2R) for acute respiratory failure.
