We extend a warm invitation to healthcare professionals from across the UK specializing in Intensive Care, Cardiology, Resuscitation, and Pre-Hospital Medicine to converge for a discourse on the role of Extracorporeal Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (ECPR) in the UK. This summit offers a unique platform to connect with medical teams nationwide, fostering dialogue on the latest advancements and best practices in cardiac arrest management and extracorporeal support.

Curated by a panel of international experts, this gathering presents an exclusive opportunity to delve into the latest evidence and practices concerning cardiac arrest and ECPR. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive view of interventions for refractory cardiac arrests while offering practical insights into their implementation within the UK healthcare landscape.

Participants will engage with dedicated teams committed to enhancing cardiac arrest and ECPR management, facilitating invaluable networking opportunities with peers across the UK.

Organized by the Critical Care Section of the Royal Society of Medicine, this event receives support from seven national and international societies, including the Resuscitation Council, Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine, British Cardiovascular Society, Intensive Care Society, British Association of Critical Care Nurses, Air Ambulances UK, Euro ELSO, and Mechanical Life Support.

  • Gain insights into strategies for the UK rollout of ECPR.
