We are pleased to welcome you to our 2021 International ECOS-TCS Congress digital platform, which opens a new window on all forms of ExtraCorporeal Organ Support (ECOS), encompassing cardiac, respiratory, kidney and liver support and blood purification techniques…
Indeed, the broader term of ECOS (ExtraCorporeal Organ Support) should now be used to define the systems and platforms designed to support or replace organs compromised by sepsis, trauma, or specific cardiac, respiratory, kidney, or liver acute diseases. Of course, this year many sessions will discuss the use of ECOS devices and outcomes of patients with the most severe forms of COVID-19.
A specific congress track is dedicated to Temporary Circulatory Support (TCS) devices that are increasingly used by interventional cardiologists and intensivists to treat cardiogenic shock due to acute myocardial infarction and end-stage cardiac failure.
The Congress also provides state-of-the-art discussions on the indications and results of extracorporeal gas exchange techniques (venovenous ECMO and ECCO2R) for acute respiratory failure.
Specific sessions cover the latest evidence and practical management of patients with acute kidney injury in need of renal replacement therapy, acute liver failure, or pathologies requiring emergent blood purification techniques.
Cardiologists and particularly interventional cardiologists, heart and lung surgeons, pulmonologists, nephrologists, intensivists, hematologists, emergency physicians, anesthesiologists, respiratory therapists, perfusionists, and nurses will have the unique opportunity to discuss with world key opinion leaders all theoretical and practical management aspects of these emerging and very promising technologies.
We wish you a pleasant e-Congress!
