Abstract:
PURPOSE: This poster will discuss the evolution and development of an adult extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) program including the history of our program at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Arizona. ECMO is used in the adult population to provide cardiac and pulmonary support to patients in cardiogenic shock refractory to conventional therapies. DESCRIPTION: In our cardiac surgery institution, the need for this program arose as we transitioned to a heart transplant center and an increasing population of patients in our region of the country implanted with mechanical cardiac assist devices as a bridge to recover or transplantation. Initially, the certified clinical perfusionist (CCP) monitored and managed the ECMO circuit but with the development of the RN ECMO specialist role, this position has evolved to a collaborative practice. The role of the RN ECMO specialist will be described with the necessary education and validated clinical competencies. The poster will discuss the adult ECMO program comprehensive of the guidelines and protocols, the course objectives and content, skills lab, provider order development, documentation requirements, precepted experiences, and the validation of competencies within the scope of practice for the RN ECMO specialist. The RN ECMO specialist role has provided the opportunity for the professional growth and development of the experienced ICU nurse. Additional benefits of having an RN in this ECMO specialist role include improved communication and a more collaborative approach to the patientÆs plan of care. EVALUATION/OUTCOMES:Summarize the physiology and mechanics of ECMO and present the advantages for ECMO to be used in the adult population. Provide a general account of our past to recognize the necessity in our region of the country for an adult ECMO program. Outline the RN ECMO specialist position related to the necessary education and validated clinical competencies with a course curriculum including lectures, an exam, skills labs, and precepted experiences. Articulate on the function and responsibilities of the RN ECMO specialist related to the tasks of monitoring the ECMO circuit, adjusting flows according to the patientÆs blood gas values, documentation, and emergency procedures. Distinguish the advantages to support of having a RN ECMO specialist for a more collaborative practice to the patientÆs plan of care and professional growth for the critical care nurse.
