Abstract:

The Pacific Pediatric Advanced Care Initiative has established an advanced care center with ECLS support in Hawaii to support the Pacific Rim. The Centers goal is to advance the science of Pediatric Advanced Care through new basic science and simulation research, while providing advanced care to patients, and improving the education and training of Department of Defense DOD Health Care providers. The Center is evaluated through existing guidelines for clinical care and education and training. The major research foci for the Center includes 1. basic science research in ECMO, and 2. development and evaluation of simulation technologies as applied to pre-ECLS and ECLS curricula. This initiative is a joint venture between Tripler Army Medical Center TAMC, Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children KMCWC, Kaiser Permanente Hawaii, University of Hawaii UH, and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center UPMC.
