Advanced Medical Devices in Your Community

More and more individuals in your community are being discharged from hospitals with short-term and long-term medical devices that provide life-support and other critical functions. In this session, participants will review advanced medical devices that are increasing in prevalence in the out-of-hospital setting. The session will highlight left ventricular assist devices (LVADs), external defibrillation/cardioversion devices (i.e., Life Vest), continuous infusions of medications for pulmonary hypertension, portable extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) devices, and tracheostomies/mechanical ventilators. Participants will develop a concise approach for troubleshooting and managing these devices.
