Cardiopulmonary Bypass Skills Workshop Surgeons

CARDIOPULMONARY BYPASS SKILLS WORKSHOP

Help increase patient safety through simulation training2

THE BENEFITS OF SIMULATION TRAINING

It’s more important than ever for cardiovascular practitioners to learn how to troubleshoot in a safe environment. According to a recent Johns Hopkins study, medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the U.S.

Medical simulation can improve patient safety by producing elevated knowledge, skills and proficiency in device operation, and reducing user errors in the delivery of healthcare.2


WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE WORKSHOP

Cardiopulmonary Bypass Skills Workshop Operating Room

Cardiovascular residents and fellows will have the opportunity to manage simulated yet realistic scenarios, while at the chest and sitting behind the heart-lung machine. Participants will also be exposed to:

  • Patient refractory to anticoagulation
  • Mal-positioned/dislodged aortic cannula
  • Compromised venous flow or inability to empty the heart
  • Compromised arterial flow or arterial line pressure, or patient MAP
  • Compromised oxygenation
  • Accidental arterial air embolism
  • Mechanical pump failure
  • Fluid balance and hemodilution management
  • Failure to wean from CPB

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Conduct a simulated cardiopulmonary bypass case using all commands and checkpoints of the Seven Steps of CPB3
  • Recognize problematic situations in the normal conduct of CPB
  • Safely manage and resolve emergency scenarios towards a successful outcome
