KIMSHEALTH to Hold National Workshop on ECMO on March 5-6

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:
KIMSHEALTH is organising a two-day national-level workshop from this Saturday on ECMO to provide hands-on training to doctors at the multi-specialty hospital.

The March 5-6 event on ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation), which is a technique of providing prolonged cardiac and respiratory support to persons with under-functioning heart and lungs, is being held amid its extra importance as the last resort to treat Covid-19 and pneumonia.

The workshop, by the Critical Care division at KIMSHEALTH, will be addressed by experts across the country such as Dr Suresh Kumar, Dr Jumana Yusuf Haji, Dr Deepak V, Dr Shaji P., Dr Suharsh and Dr Dipin Mani.

Two years of spurt in the spread of the novel coronavirus has led to a need for more ECMO centres and trained doctors working for the better ECMO facilities in the country.
