The Aster International ECMO Summit 2024, held at JW Marriott from 2nd Feb – 4TH Feb 2024, Bengaluru, proved to be a landmark event, bringing together global experts and healthcare professionals to explore the latest advancements in Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO), Critical Care, and Thoracic Transplantation.
Insights from Dr. Pavan Yadav, Lead Consultant, Interventional Pulmonology and Lung Transplantation, ASTER RV Hospital:
"ECMO as a life support has become an indispensable part of modern critical care. As a center with Lung transplantation facilities, ECMO is all the more important to support patients who develop severe respiratory or cardiac failure. ECMO works as a life support in these patients and helps in bridging them to transplant when required. For all these reasons, ECMO has taken center stage in modern critical care."
The conference attracted 17 international faculties, including experts from Mayo Clinic in the USA, Monash University and Health New Zealand, fostering a dynamic platform to delve into the intricacies of ECMO and Critical Care.
