Q&A - ECMO & COVID with Cassie
Join us as we discuss the process of ECMO with Cassie. We will explore WHAT ECMO is, the nursing side of ECMO, the patient side, and some COVID specifics regarding ECMO as well.
Here's a bit about Cassie:
I’m Cassie and I’ve been a nurse for about 7 and a half years. I spent about three years on a cardiac step-down unit where I started as a new grad and I’ve spent the almost past 5 years in Cardiovascular ICU- where we take a multitude of patients from bypass and valve replacements, STEMIs, heart transplants, heart failure and different cardiac device patients from LVADs up to ECMO. In addition to being a floor nurse in CVICU I also became one of our ECMO coordinators a year ago and have recently started school to further my career and become a perfusionist.
