The Ethical Considerations of ECMO – An Interview with Lisa Soltis, Senior ECMO Clinical Specialist

Lisa Soltis ECMO Specialist

Today I have Lisa Soltis, MN, RN, CCRN-CMC-CSC, CHFN, PCCN Senior ECMO Clinical Specialist back on the show to talk about the ethical considerations of using Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO). This episode is an emotionally heavy one, although an important one. We discuss who ECMO is best for, what is destination therapy as well as what a destination to no where means. Lisa shares stories from her own experience at the bedside as well as discussing some clinical cases. She also brings up about moral distress and how it relates to ECMO.

This is a very heartfelt episode. Bring a tissue.

Thank you, Lisa for being back on the show and for educating all of us.

Stay Safe and Stay Sane,
